Living in Crystal Palace

A local information guide to Crystal Palace property, schools and public transport.

  1. Crystal Palace is a residential area in south London named from the former local landmark, The Crystal Palace, which occupied the area from 1854 to 1936. The area is located approximately 8 miles south east of Charing Cross, and offers impressive views over the capital. Crystal Palace includes one of the highest points in London, 367 feet (112 m). Two television transmitter masts make the district a landmark location, visible from many parts of the London area. Crystal Palace still retains much of its impressive Victorian architecture, although housing styles are mixed, with Victorian terraces next to mid-war terraces side by side with blocks of modern flats. Crystal Palace Park is surrounded by grand Victorian villas, many of which have been converted into flats and apartments. The "Crystal Palace Triangle", formed by Westow Street, Westow Hill and Church Road, has a large number of restaurants and several independent shops, as well as a sprawling indoor secondhand market on Haynes Lane.
