Tai Chi on Beckenham Place Park
Throughout the summer months (May - August) the class moves onto the lovely Beckenham Place Park, so we can train amongst the trees in one of the most tranquil spots in Lewisham.
The sesions are held on the old golf course, near to the exit to Beckenham at the top of the hill (see Map). The ground is quite flat yet the natural setting allows greater focus upon balance and coordination as we strive to maintain smooth, flowing movements across the grassy surface.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the following changes have been made this year:
Classes start at 6.30 pm and there are two 45 minutes sessions each week.
After the sessions there is a free pushing hands* meet up for anyone who would like to further their practice of this element of the syllabus.
*Pushing hands will not be practiced during the Covid-19 pandemic.
You can get to the park by car, bus or train:
- Parking is available in the park, at the top of the hill next to the mansion house and along the side of the road. The charges cease from 5 pm.
- The 54 bus stops at 'Highland Croft' at the top of Beckenham Hill Road. From there you can access the park via a path. The 136, 208, 181 and 320 buses stop nearby on the Bromley Road.
- There is also a train station at either end of the park, Beckenham Hill being the most convenient.
