The town of Croydon is a lively shopping, arts and business centre in northeast Surrey, just ten miles from central London. Public transport links are superb with the south coast only 40 minutes train ride away and London only 20 minutes, whilst Croydon‚s tram system provides links to Gatwick airport as well as being an environmentally friendly solution to public transport around the town itself. Croydon has a huge shopping centre plus eight hundred restaurants and cafes providing a diverse range of foods from countries all over the world. There are also many traditional pubs and nightclubs. At the heart of the town centre is the arts complex and event venue of Fairfield Halls, which has attracted many famous bands in the past including The Beatles. The daily fruit and vegetable market in Surrey Street has been extremely popular since being awarded a royal charter in medieval times, nowadays also selling a variety of goods including clothing and gifts to suit the lively multicultural community. Croydon had a rich past as a medieval market town, seat for the Archbishops of Canterbury for 800 years, and stop for stage coaches on the original road between London and Brighton. Though flattened during the war so a bit of a concrete jungle, some original buildings survived including the Victorian clock tower (now housing an art gallery), 16th century brick almshouses, and a 11th century palace used by the archbishops. There are ornamental gardens surrounding Croydon‚s prominent landmark of a huge Victorian water tower plus over a hundred other open spaces. The ponds at Waddon are nice for a walk through weeping willow filled water gardens, whilst the observation point at the largest of the area‚s open spaces, the heath land and woodland covered Addington Hills, provides extensive views over Croydon and London.
