Destination guide

A bustling hub sitting just south of London

Situated south of London, Croydon is 1 of the capital's largest suburbs. It's serves as a business hub, full of glass high-rises and office buildings overlooking a train station that can have you in Central London in 25 minutes. But it's not all power suits and business lunches! There are plenty of bars and pubs around town, as well as a growing restaurant scene with pop-up versions of some of London's hottest spots. Croydon vacation rentals are the perfect option if you're hoping to save some of your UK travel funds for more travel fun.

Things to do

Art, culture, and history, just outside London's front door

Located on the same campus as the Croydon Clocktower, you'll find the free Museum of Croydon. Follow the history of Croydon, or catch an exhibit from local artists. If you're interested in learning even more about Croydon's history, take a guided tour of Croydon Palace, the former summer residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury. Also of note: a train can have you in Central London in under 25 minutes, meaning many Croydon vacation rentals are under half an hour away from all of the top museums and galleries the city has to offer.


Shop till you drop, well away from the crowds

Of Croydon's top highlights, 1 must-do is shop—well away from the crowds you'll find in the likes of the King Road or Oxford Street. Head to Beanos, which is purportedly the largest second-hand record shop in Europe. Catch a dance or musical performance at the Croydon Clocktower, or visit another intimate performance space such as Fairfield Halls or the Donmar Warehouse. There are a variety of movie theaters to catch the latest releases, and don't underestimate the nightlife in Croydon. There are tons of bars, clubs, and restaurants to explore, too.


Pack your wellies, mate, and prepare to make a splash!

Much like the rest of London, it's best to visit Croydon when the weather is fairly predictable. This may be an impossible feat, so pack an umbrella and a raincoat no matter when you visit, but your odds of long, sunny days are best from late spring through early fall. This is definitely peak season, so consider that prices might be higher. Fall and winter are gray and chilly, with shorter days and more rain, but you may find Croydon vacation rentals at a bit of a lower rate.

Natural features

An easy escape from (and return to!) the concrete jungle

Croydon sits south of the River Thames, and though it's a bit of a concrete jungle itself, there's no shortage of parks and greenspaces a quick ride away. Richmond Park and the famous deer that roam there is to northwest, while the hiking, bird-watching, and cycling trails of the beautiful Surrey Hills is to the south. If you're lucky enough to get a day by the sea during your visit, a direct train to the charming beach town of Brighton will have you on the pebbled shores of the English Channel in well under an hour.
