Five reasons Croydon is NOT “sad and monotonous”


With French newspaper MetroNews reporting that the nation’s rugby team is not enjoying its stay in Croydon, the South London district is coming in for a bit of a bashing, but are they overlooking the area’s special ‘je ne sais quoi’? Here are five reasons why culture-packed Croydon is not “sad and monotonous” as MetroNews claims, but actually a great place to live, work and visit:

1. Fascinating buildings

Croydon_clocktower6354011431_0a7a058915_bCroydon’s architecture brilliantly combines the practical with the picturesque. Take Croydon Clocktower, which is not just an ornate clock, but also home to the Museum of Croydon and Croydon Central Library. Meanwhile, legendary arts venue The Fairfield Halls has seen appearances by everyone from Johnny Cash to The Beatles over the years.

2. Cutting-edge music

3. A bookish history

4. Top TV

Classic TV programmes like ‘The Bill’ and ‘Peep Show’ have been filmed in Croydon. Iconic 1990’s comedy ‘Men Behaving Badly’ was also set in South London, with Croydon mentioned frequently.

5. A place in Hollywood

In the 2012 Batman instalment ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, did you know that ‘Gotham Hospital’ was actually none other than Croydon’s Delta Point? The former BT offices were converted to flats shortly after. So, Croydonians have plenty to be proud of, and if you’d like to pay the town a visit, why not check out Hallmark Hotel London Croydon Aerodrome?
