Croydon in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... approximately 30 mins all day. There is also a tram link that links the east of the borough to Wimbledon. This is maintained really well and is a lot cheaper than trying to drive. Buses also link Croydon to all the surrounding neighbourhoods of this huge London Borough. Croydon town center is a big bustling joy for shopping, with two huge shopping precincts, The Whitgift and Centrale, and you would be hard pushed to find something you can not purchase in one of these. On the tramlink you can also reach Ikea on the Purley Way, surrounded by retail outlets, a huge cinema and several restaurants. The nightlife is busy, with countless ba... more

There is absolutely nothing wrong with Croydon, although it does seem to have a really bad reputation. Travel links to this town are amazing. From East Croydon you can get to the South of England (Brighton and Portsmouth) easily with direct trains running every hour. Gatwick airport can be accessed within twenty minutes with many direct trains every hour, and London Bridge, Waterloo and London Victoria also have direct trains that take approximately 30 mins all day. There is also a tram link that links the east of the borough to Wimbledon. This is maintained really well and is a lot cheaper than trying to drive. Buses also link Croydon to all the ...

Croydon is a thriving, multicultural town which has a relatively large town centre with two large shopping centres as well as outdoor shops. It also features a massive library and has loasds of business both retail and corporate. From Croydon it is very easy to get to other places such as Purley Way which is a very popular entertainment complex. Here, you can go to Ikea, Mothercare, Outfit, DFS, Next etc and there is free parking whenever you go. There are a range of restaurants there also as well as a drive thru macdonalds and burger king. From Croydon, it is also very easy to get to central London, if you are looking to see the real heart of ... Read the complete review

"...Its like being on the road to hell" "What like taking the bus through Croydon?" "The next topic is Unlikely Road Signs" "You are now leaving Croydon, well done!" Both of the above are quotes from the popular comedy TV show 'Mock the Week' and both were met with much laughter, I typed these from memory so they may not be exact but the message is still clear - Croydon has a bad reputation. If you want more proof, in an online survey of which 4,000 people took part in, Croydon was voted the chaviest town in the UK with a 22% majority. The big question is then - is this reputation ...

i have to admit, Croydon wasn't my favourite city to live in. the city centre was fine, and very generic, with a shopping centre and very good transport links (there are three train stations in croydon, an excellent bus service and a tram as well), a cinema, bars, clubs etc. However, you can end up in the wrong part of town very quickly. West croydon especially looks like a ghetto, and is quite frightening - it''s a marked difference from east croydon which is bright and fresh and seems like it's had time and money spent on it. I'd live here again, it's in zone five of london and understandably has great links into the city, but it wouldn't be my first choice ... Read the complete review

i also come from croydon, but i don't see it through rose tinted glasses. yes the shops are fantastic, every shop you can think. these are mainly divided between 2 shopping centre the whitgift centre and the drummond centre. great transport links from 2 mainline stations east croydon and west croydon, the tramlink service from new addington and wimbledon. having seen the changes in croydon, both god and bad, my opinon is great for a days shopping, but don't expect friendly happy people. watch your bag and purse and any personal belongings. enjoy your day but i am sure that you will be glad to get ...
