Where do Lower Addiscombe locals go?

Shirley Hills Viewpoint

This viewpoint in the Addington Hills provides breathtaking views of all of London. Make sure you visit on a clear day!

Shirley Windmill

Guided tours and a visitor centre explaining the milling process, it's a great day out for the family.

Boxpark Croydon

Another reason to move to Croydon! In the summer of 2016, Boxpark Croydon will be home to 80 new independent restaurants. This is, of course, something that is very exciting for the local area.


I love buffalo because it has great service and serves up a tasty burger for an even better price. The evening and lunchtime menus have a wide variety of options to choose from.

Stuffins Unlimited

A sandwich deli right in the heart of Croydon. The menu is different every day and the prices are great for the amount you get.


One of, if not the best Indian restaurant in Croydon. It has a wide variety of dishes on the menu, including game curries. The food is delicious and portions are perfectly sized to keep you full - but not to the point of bursting.

The Whitgift Centre

There's a great choice of stores in The Whitgift Centre!


If you want a fun, inexpensive night out, Reflex is great. You can usually count on cheap drinks, the people are friendly and there is always a way to get home no matter where you live!

Surrey Street Market

Engrained in Croydon's history and open 6 days a week, you can pick up produce from pretty much any part of the world and it is also very cheap! My mum who still lives in Croydon is a fan of 3 bunches of bananas for only £1!

The Gold Coast

Serving the best food from the motherland, Ghana! The jollof rice served with domedo (seasoned and spiced pork) is to die for... It reminds me of mummy's cooking!

Little Bay

A cosy little restaurant in South Croydon with fantastic service and great food! Make sure you ring up in advance and request a booth when you book to experience the uniqueness of this restaurant.

Pita Pit

A wide variety of delicious wraps at great prices!

Yeha Noha

Organic food, homemade stuff, including cakes and pastries, meditation evenings, live music at the weekends, an outside terrace and a really funky interior... Love it!!

Mantanah Thai Cuisine

An authentic Thai restaurant that has an amazing menu, offering good quality meat and vegetarian dishes.

South Norwood Country Park

Like having the countryside on your doorstep, it is a great place for a bike ride or a dog walk.
