Sydenham has a bustling town centre with an active and engaged community, excellent public transport, schools, parks, shops and restaurants. The town centre is home to 185 small and medium-sized businesses, many independently owned and offering a wide range of goods. The town centre has a very community and villagey feel making Sydenham a well connected location where there are many independent run businesses as opposed to a more vast and informal environment with branded chain stores that neighbouring Croydon, Bromley and Lewisham have. The main railway station is called Sydenham which links to Croydon, Penge, Forest Hill, New Cross, Shoreditch, Dalston and the major termini London Bridge and London Victoria.
