St George’s guided history tours during July and August 2021

St George’s Guided Tours are back for Summer 2021.

Popular for many years, these short introductory tours give a flavour of some of the fascinating aspects of local history. Here in Beckenham we are lucky to have a wonderful resource in the Parish Church. On this site has stood a place of worship for about one thousand years and the village of Beckenham has developed around it.

Come and experience a taste of the history, development and families of the area. Enjoy the beauty of the building and its stained glass. Investigate the church yard, the gravestones and wild life.

Advance booking is required – please contact the church office for details on 0208 663 6996 or email

The tours are categorised as follows:
A – An introduction to the history of the church and some of its monuments.
B – A comparison of the Victorian windows with the modern windows.
C – Story in stained glass.
D – An introduction to the memorials of the churchyard.
