If you have just purchased a home or found a property to rent in Croydon, you may be wondering what the area has to offer and what fun activities you can spend your free time doing. Croydon has plenty to offer so there is no shortage of interesting and enjoyable days out.

While Croydon is very close to the centre of London and there is nothing stopping you from taking public transport into the city to enjoy your weekend, there are also plenty of great places to explore in town itself meaning you don’t need to venture so far to find exciting things to do.

If you're a foodie, there are plenty of amazing places to try out. Boxpark Croydon is a fun and exciting space to visit that offers a whole host of different foods and cuisine to try.

There are dozens of eateries as well as hosted events such as screenings and quizzes which make it the perfect place to enjoy some great street food and a drink with your friends without hitting the city centre.

If you prefer a quieter trip out, the Ludoquist is a great little café spot that offers hot drinks, pizza and a wide selection of both popular and niche board games for you to enjoy with your friends or partner.

Croydon is also home to many beautiful parks to wander around and pass the time. Coombe wood is a gorgeous place to spend the day and there is even a café on site which you can stop in to enjoy a cup of coffee and some delicious cake.

Wandle Park is another great space that has many attractions such as a playground and ornamental garden which make it a lovely outdoor space for families to enjoy.
