About Croydon, SE London

Croydon is a large town and borough in the south of London, situated 9.5 miles south of Charing Cross.

This area is serviced by East Croydon Station which is one of the busiest non-terminal stations in London and is managed by Southern. This station offers fantastic transport routes to destinations in Sussex, Surrey and onwards to Brighton, as well as many fast train services in to the City of London and other suburban London destinations. Frequent services are run by Thameslink from Brighton via London Bridge and St Pancras International to Bedford on the London – Gatwick Airport – Brighton Line. Southern runs 10 trains per hour (tph) to London Victoria and 6 tph to London Bridge as well as several services southbound to areas in Sussex. This station also has a Tramlink service that provides routes to destinations within this southern suburban area of greater London.

Croydon is one of the largest commercial districts outside Central London, with an extensive shopping district. This has led it to become considered to be the third main central business district in Greater London. The Whitgift Centre and Centrale shopping centre are the backbone of the shopping strip with plans for a new £1bn Westfield to be built to replace it in the near future. Along the main high street and within the shopping centre one could find a wide selection of stores and boutiques including many well-known household names. This area is also plentiful in restaurants and bars and with the opening of Boxpark in recent years has added to the process of gentrification and breathing new life in to the area.

In the City of London and surrounding areas there are thousands of job opportunities and there are numerous adequate travel options to get you there.
