How to Get to Croydon

Croydon is a large town in South London's suburban area, that is very popular with commuters to central London. Croydon Station, one of the busiest in London outside of the central area, is primarily served by three routes - the service from London Bridge, operated by Southern; the service from London Victoria, also operated by Southern; and the London Overground service, operated by Transport for London, which travels from Dalston Junction in the north east of London to West Croydon. Croydon has another station, East Croydon, which is not served by the London Overground but is connected to London Bridge and Victoria via various commuter services, such as the train from London Victoria to Sutton, run by Southern Trains.

Croydon

Although Croydon is mostly used as a base by people who work in the city, it has plenty to offer. Croydon is known as one of the best places to go shopping in South London, and has a large town centre with two shopping centres - take the opportunity to indulge in some retail therapy in a venue without the crowds of Oxford Street but with the value for money offered by local shops and brands. Another fun and unique thing to do in Croydon is take a ride on the tram - Croydon is the only place in London to have a tram service, and one of few areas in the whole UK to operate trams. The centre of Croydon also has a number of restaurants and bars, as well as several nightclubs where you can dance the evening away.
