Khyber

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.

Superb food and service at a reasonable price. A hidden gem.

The Wrythe Recreation Ground

On this location is a large underground air-raid shelter from the Second World War. The entrance and vents are visible, but it is not possible to enter the bunker. It also backs onto Carshalton Athletic FC football ground.

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.

The Wandle Trail is a great place for walking and cycling

Surrey Street Market

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!

"Croydon airport was the main London airport in the 1920s and 1930s. Many famous events can be traced back to its involvement including Amy Johnson taking off from there on her flight to Australia and Charles Lindbergh landing in the Spirit of St Louis."

No longer in use, Croydon Airport was once a major international airport that now houses a visitor centre.
