Where do SE25 locals go?

Selhurst Park

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

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!

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!!

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

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

South Norwood Lake and Grounds

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

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!

Grab a quick snack and a coffee whilst at Crystal Palace Station.

The dinosaurs in Crystal Palace Park are a fantastic sight!

Blackbird Bakery

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

"South Norwood is a great place to live, with a quick 12 minute commute to London Bridge, great cafes and the peaceful and pretty lakes area. And of course, the new Antic London pub opening on the high street this summer!"

"We moved to South Norwood, 3 minutes from Norwood Junction Station, just over 3 years ago. It still amazes me how an area that has such fantastic transport links and a plethora of affordable housing stock can still remain relatively unknown amongst investors. We purchased our property as it offered us the space that we needed, including a nice sized garden, at a price that we could not match anywhere else in London. We have al... more

"We have lived in South Norwood for two years and absolutely love it! The transport links are amazing and people are extremely friendly. Yeha Noha and Coffee Craft are lovely cafes offering good quality food and drinks at reasonable prices. Stanley Halls is the hub of the community and hosts all sorts of events!"

Jacqueline

"If you stop a stranger on the street to ask them something, like directions for example, it's like talking to a friend - people are so friendly and there is a real community feel!"

"I love South Norwood because South Norwood Country Park is a great place for a bike ride or walking the dog."

"South Norwood has great transport links!"

Eve

"South Norwood has excellent transport links to central London (some trains get to London bridge in 11 mins) and easy to get to Clapham, Victoria and Shoreditch. Gatwick is also easily accessible (20 to 30 mins on the train) and also to Brighton! Lots of green space (Grangewood Park, South Norwood Lakes and South Norwood Country Park to name a few) – with the odd kestrel flying overhead. "

"South Norwood has great transport links and lots of nice local places for bike rides, like the Waterlink Way."

"After having lived in a lovely top floor flat in Streatham for several years, I found myself yearning for more space and the need to have a garden to enjoy the summer months. The property prices in the area had become rather high so I decided to look further-a-field. With a little research I discovered the hidden gem that people sometimes talk about, that is South Norwood. It wasn't an area I particularly knew much abo... more

"I love SE25 because it’s real and edgy and reminds me of how SW2 used to be 15 years ago and the best bits are: First, it has excellent transport links – I can be in London Bridge (or back home to SE25 from LB) in 11 minutes (occasionally 10 minutes). Or I can be in London Victoria in 28 minutes. Going away from London, it’s 4 minutes to East Croydon and then a 15 minute journey to Gatwick. The Overground service is great,... more
