We grew up here and we love it. We’re excited about the revitalisation taking place. The borough is a tech hotspot, with hundreds of digital startups moving here in recent years. There are no less than 127 green spaces and lots of good schools, so it’s an excellent place to raise kids. Average property prices are about half that of London overall. For now.

If you like eating out and evening fun,
you’re spoilt for choice. We particularly like Boxpark, a street food bonanza. Croydon is well connected too: it’s only 17 minutes into central London and a minute less to Gatwick Airport. The tram network can zip you over to Wimbledon in no time. Visit our other club while you’re there.

For Croydon the only way is up.
