South Croydon - a snapshot of south London

With its compact high street featuring pubs, restaurants and some well-priced pubs, there is just enough in South Croydon to keep you entertained.

The Recreation Ground on Sanderstead Road covers more than eight acres, and has played host to football and cricket matches in days gone by. Today, it acts as a bandstand for the local musicians and a spot to stroll hand in hand along the railway.

A fine wine tasting and a roast with all the trimmings

South Croydon is the home of Laithwaite's Winery, that specialises in global wines and champagnes. it holds regular wine tasting sessions, and you can buy tickets online. Afterwards, head for a roast dinner at the Toby Inn carvery.

If a sit down British roast isn't what you're after, why not pick up some fast food from Ozzie's or a Chinese take away from the Golden bowl, which are all within walking distance of Laithwaite's.
