Moving to London is a very exciting dream to pursue and there really is nothing quite like life in the Big Smoke… but it can be very difficult to decide which borough to move to. Which part of this expansive and exhilarating city would be right for you?

One of the most popular London boroughs absolutely has to be Croydon. It’s a very safe place in which to live, with relatively affordable housing and very low crime rates - which is, no doubt, a huge part of its appeal, making it perfect for young professionals and families alike.

It’s also incredibly well connected, served by three stations that are all connected to the National Rail network, so moving around is very easy. And there’s also the London Tramlink that can help you get from A to B, so you’ll have no trouble getting where you need to be.

And, of course, there’s a huge amount to see and do so even if you don’t want to hop on a train and head to central London, you’ll certainly never find yourself without some form of entertainment. Here are just some of our top picks of things to do in Croydon!
