House Prices in Croydon

Croydon offers an impressive array of community hubs and amenities, and is one of the largest shopping districts outside of London. It therefore attracts interest from both professionals and young families.

It represents a popular option for city commuters thanks to its direct rail link to Victoria Station and connection to Wimbledon via London’s only tramline. Also acting as a gateway to the south by both road and rail, Croydon is popular with those keen on weekend getaways. Highlighting the convenience of its transport links is therefore a must.

Families will enjoy the open expanses of Lloyd Park and South Norwood Country Park, and family-friendly days out at Crystal Palace Park Farm. The impressive number of schools in the area is also a major plus point, while the diverse array of cafes and restaurants will be a selling point for all.
