Where do Selhurst locals go?

Doyley's A1 Barbers

I have been getting my hair cut here for over 15 years. It's a very nice family-run business and a fantastic place to discuss football and sports with the guys. It also tends to be a social hub too, which is great!

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.

Selhurst Park

A great day out for all the family watching Crystal Palace FC play at their home ground.

Coffee Craft

An excellent recently opened coffee shop in South Norwood with a relaxed atmosphere, serving brilliant coffee, cakes and lunch.

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!

The Whitgift Centre

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

Pita Pit

A wide variety of delicious wraps at great prices!

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.

South Norwood Lake and Grounds

A pretty area for walking round with peaceful surroundings. There's a great cafe too.

South Norwood Lake and Grounds

Feeding the ducks on South Norwood Lake is a great way to escape city life.


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!

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.

South Norwood Country Park

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