One of the fastest growing boroughs of London, Croydon is a flourishing property hotspot. Offering a luxurious London lifestyle but at an affordable price, the borough has a thriving city feel. With the allure of Leon House at the heart of the town, it’s easy to see why demand to live here is firm and growing fast. 

So why are so many people choosing to move to Croydon? Here are our six reasons why it’s the perfect place to call home:

So much space

Whether you’re looking for a place to sit after a long day’s work or for a peaceful weekend walk, there’s something for everyone from small gardens to large parks. Residents of Leon House can enjoy a short seven minute stroll to the tranquil Queen’s Gardens or a 16 minute walk to the beautiful Park Hill park.

Whether you’re in need of some retail therapy at Centrale shopping centre or heading for somewhere delicious to eat at Boxpark, you’re truly spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping, socialising and enjoying fabulous food and drinks in Croydon.

Connectivity and commutability

If you’re hankering for the bright lights of the city, Croydon’s train and tram connections mean London’s metropolis is a lot closer than you think. Your daily commute or the occasional business trip is super straightforward thanks to a 16-minute train journey to London Victoria and 15 minutes to Gatwick. And for those who fancy taking the tram, it’s just 30 minutes to the capital. In Croydon you’re able to bask in the best of both a city and suburban lifestyle.

Local livelihoods

If you’re keen to be closer to home when it comes to work, Croydon is home to many major employers. From energy companies to cosmetic firms, big businesses have been choosing the borough for their headquarters for many years. This has boosted the number of job opportunities for local people. Those in the market for a new home for their business will find Croydon also has a wide range of Grade A office space up for grabs. And there’s more to come thanks to the new commercial developments currently under construction.

Living in London’s Borough of Culture

After being named as the London Borough of Culture for 2023, Croydon is investing in a brand new cultural and educational quarter. At the heart of the quarter and the first part to be redeveloped is Fairfield Halls, the largest arts centre in South London. Home to a theatre, concert hall, studio spaces, bars and restaurants, Fairfield Halls welcomes many performances and community shows every year, as well as hosting events and weddings.


The extremely popular Boxpark can also be found in Croydon and offers live music, movie screenings and creative workshops. So there’s plenty to choose from when making those weekend plans.
