Where do Norbury locals go?

The Rookery

A walled garden that would not look out of place in a BBC costume drama. Stunning throughout the year and still relatively undiscovered by the residents of South London. The gardens are beautifully maintained by a justifiably proud set of volunteers.

Norwood Grove House

Known locally as the "White House", Norwood Grove House and its well-tended formal gardens were opened in 1926 by the future King Edward VIII. It is the centrepiece of Norwood Grove itself; a large expanse of grass from which you can overlook Streatham and its surrounding areas. It is thoroughly underutilised and all the better for it!

Cream's

Classic hot and cold desserts, milkshakes and gelato served in a low-lit, purple and black setting.

The Bull

This gastropub next to Streatham Common is fantastic! The décor is really cool, there's an impressive outdoor seating area with fires and the food is outstanding.

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!

West Norwood Feast

A community market in south London. Community comes together to taste, eat, drink and admire or buy all handmade items and all things that are on offer.

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

So many activities for adults and children. I personally love the exercise classes, Zumba and Boxfit.

Four Hundred Rabbits

Head to this pizza restaurant for a delicious gelato on a warm summer's day in the Crystal Palace Triangle!

Crystal Palace Aquarium

Everything you need for your fish and reptile needs, even little critters like locusts!

La Bruschetta

They serve tasty lunchtime salads at this local cafe.

Domali

Vegetarian and pescetarian restaurant with the best fat chips EVER.

Blackbird Bakery

Open early in the morning, pop into this cafe for a delicious coffee and pastry.

Performance 360

Crossfit and personal training gym based in the heart of the Crystal Triangle. Always a hard workout.

Palace Spice

This Indian restaurant's food is delicious. I am constantly ordering too much, but never upset by the bill. They always offer me free drinks too!

Joanna's Restaurant

Mocktails and cocktails whilst enjoying lovely views of the City from the top of Crystal Palace Triangle.

"A good community spirit. We have resided in Norbury (Pollards Hill) for over 30 years, having raised three children here. We have all benefited from living in a tranquil area with good neighbours, which provides great transport links."

Let us know

"Located below an anonymous block of flats called Pear Tree House in Upper Norwood was a secret Civil Defence bunker from the Cold War. The bunker was not secret for long and was frequently daubed with CND stickers, before it was closed after pressure from the self-declared nuclear free Lambeth council in 1993."
