"Towering above the surrounding landscape, the Crystal Palace transmitting station is the fifth-tallest structure in London and was once the tallest before One Canada Square was built in 1991."

Crystal Palace is a wonderful place for families, with quick commutes and the wide green spaces...

What locals say about Upper Norwood

  1. In the chaos of the city, the area has the charm of a village, the chaos of the city, the greenery associated with England, eclectic mix of cultures and the most fabulous view of the London skyline

  2. For me, the best part of living in Upper Nor wood is walking in the recreation ground after the grass has been mowed and the shrubs pruned.

Child-friendly activities near Upper Norwood

Sing and Sign

LWS Cafe & Charity
Developed with the help of Speech and Language experts and launched in January 2001, the "Sing and Sign" programme has since taught thousands of parents across the UK how to sign with their babies and encourage amazing early communication. Website

Crafty Cooks

Braziliana Cafe
A love of cooking and an ability to do so is an important skill that every child should have. Children from as young as 24 months are taught how to cook a whole range of delicious, nutritious dishes. They will cook both sweet and savoury, from beetroot cakes to mini quiches with a spattering of chocolate in the middle! The lovely Heather runs Crafty Cooks South London. She runs regular classes and holiday clubs and really enjoys meeting lots of little Crafty Cooks! Website

Tippee Toes Music


Our class structure is designed for carers to fully participate in the class with their child and baby which is an extremely important part of the success of the classes. The more you take part in the music making and movement, the more your child will get out of it. Children learn by imitation and when they see you singing, playing musical instruments and moving to the music they will try to do the same. Website

Babysitting and Spa

The Shala
For all those exhausted parents in need of a stretch and some quiet time, we have now launched our on-site babysitting service at the Shala. On weekday mornings, you can bring your little person to be looked after and entertained in a studio next door, while you have some time to recharge, rejuvenate and RELAX with a massage or a yoga or Pilates class. On-site babysitting is available for our 9.30am weekday classes and treatments slots Tuesday to Friday. Your child will be looked after by an experienced childminder while you do a class or have a massage. The childminder has a great deal of experience looking after young children - she looks after our children and comes highly recommended! NB We may offer more times for this service in the future. £20 for 5 babysitting sessions (valid for 3 months) 3-12 months £25 for 5 babysitting sessions (valid 3 months) Website

The Shala - Postnatal Massage

The Shala
After the birth, post-natal massage can provide an invaluable opportunity for mother's to allow time for self-nurture. Ideally, all new mothers would have a massage as soon after birth as possible, to help the muscles release the muscle memory of labour, gently aid healing and help with spinal realignment. These are all important factors in helping your body to return to its pre-pregnancy state. Post-natal massage can be easily done with your baby tucked up beside you, or feeding. Website

Spanish Toddler Club-'Here-for-Good' Centre

Here-for-Good Centre
¡Bienvenidos! is a Toddler Club for Spanish speaking parents bilingual families and anyone who wants to give their child a head start. It enables children to learn Spanish while having fun singing listening to stories dancing doing arts & crafts and playing games while using various multimedia. Website

About Upper Norwood

Upper Norwood is an area of South London within the London Boroughs of Bromley, Croydon and Lambeth. It is located north of Croydon. Upper Norwood is situated along the London clay ridge known as Beulah Hill. Most housing stock dates from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries with large detached properties on the peak of the ridge and smaller semi-detached and terraced dwelling on its flanks. The hill offers panoramic views northward to central London and southward to central Croydon and the North Downs. The area is one of the highest in the London area and for centuries was occupied by the Great North Wood, an extensive area of natural oak forest which formed a wilderness close to the southern edge of the ever-expanding city of London. The name 'Norwood' comes from a contraction of the 'North Wood'. The area still retains large amounts of woodland for an urban situation.
