With all of the redevelopments happening around Croydon, it’s becoming an interesting and social place to live for its residents. Here, we’ve pulled together 5 fun things you can do around Croydon:
If you’re looking for somewhere a little bit different to spend your evening, then look no further than The FunHouse. Found less than 5 minutes’ walk from Leon House, the FunHouse is a bar with two adult sized ball pits for you to enjoy whilst you have a drink and some food. If you’re feeling competitive pick up a bat at one of the ping-pong tables or challenge friends in a game of beer pong!
There’s an event to suit everyone at Boxpark. With events for both adults and children, you will find weekly movies screened in the building as well as kids clubs, karaoke and club nights as well as live sports events happening throughout the year. All surrounded by their unique food offerings.
This unique restaurant found in South Croydon not only offers great modern European and French cuisine, but you’ll be enjoying your meal amongst their quirky theatrical décor. They also host live music and opera evenings so it’s worth booking your visit to enjoy the entertainment.
This contemporary and urban art hub is the place to find yourself if you want to check out some unique pieces and potentially take some home for your own collection. The Rise Gallery is also unique in that it encourages the Croydon art scene by sponsoring a lot of the urban street art seen around the town, they even hosted their own ‘Croydon Rising’ event last year to pioneer more of this artwork.
Whether you’re new to the area or want to meet new people, East Croydon Cool events are perfect for getting to know Croydon better with like minded people. Their events often involve a walk around some key areas of the town or a visit to a bar/restaurant/café that you may not have heard of yet. They also have a selection of merchandise on sale to really show off your love for The Cronx.
