Just a five minute walk away you’ll come to ‘the triangle’, an eclectic mix of high street chains, dotted with boutique clothes shops, independent bistros, restaurants and a sprinkling of classic gastropubs, all filled with character and atmosphere. There are plenty of fun choices for meeting friends, browsing and just taking time out, not to mention an indispensable Sainsbury’s for all your everyday essentials.

Step out in any direction and you’ll find a variety of green spaces for walking, cycling or simply chilling out on a hot summer’s day. Within half a mile are several major parks and woodlands including Crystal Palace, Norwood, Weston and Sydenham, criss-crossed with walks, ponds, lakes and cycle paths.
