Where you’ll be

London Borough Of Croydon, England, United Kingdom

Now open next to East Croydon Station is the amazing new dining and entertainment concept: BOXPARK.
It’s the world’s first pop-up food mall – fusing the concepts of the modern street food market and placing local and global brands side by side, to create a unique dining and entertainment destination.
Entirely constructed out of refitted shipping containers, Boxpark utilises a unique position in being able to offer affordable and flexible conditions for lifestyle brands, cafes, restaurants and bars to trade and succeed.
The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, said: “One of the things I love most about London is that its cultural gems are not just limited to the city centre. Around every corner of the capital there is something new and exciting to discover and Croydon is full of fantastic things to see and do.

“Having just been named the fastest growing economy in the UK, Croydon is fast emerging as a hub for culture and development thanks to the extensive regeneration it has been undergoing in recent years. Growing London’s cultural sector is one of my core priorities and I’m delighted to see top innovators and entertainers setting their sights on Croydon. Boxpark will be a great addition to the town centre and a festival of this scale and calibre is the perfect way for Croydon to really get itself noticed on the capital’s cultural map.”

Boxpark Croydon will follow its successful sister site in Shoreditch, opening Croydon’s doors to over 40 rising food & drink traders including MeatLiquor, Chilango, Mama Lan, Breakfast Club and many more.
And it’s not just about the food! It’s not all about retail…
Boxpark aims to consistently deliver an exciting and wide variety of food and beverage but entertainment and events will form a big part of the scene, bringing as much fresh, vibrant and exiting talent to Croydon as possible.

Croydon town center is a fifteen minute walk or short bus hop away and the area is very well served by public transport.
The iconic Whitgift shopping center has 140 retailers under one roof, is open seven days a week and central Croydon has an abundance of restaurants and bars.
There are convenience stores and super-markets within a few minutes walk.
Croydon has the largest population of all the Boroughs in London, and with Croydon Town acting as the heart of the borough; it could almost be a city in itself.
The area has always been a leader in financial, business and cultural sectors and is considered to be very well balanced with great living and working opportunities mixed with a bustling town center and many green open areas. It also has a great alternative/arts scene, making living or staying in Croydon an increasingly attractive choice for anyone not wanting to pay higher London prices.

The Borough of Croydon formed in 1965 and the name derives from Saxon times, meaning “valley of the crocuses!” – Crocuses are a plant in the iris family, for those wondering!

As mentioned above, Croydon has always been a leader in financial and business sectors; this dates back to when the area boasted the city’s first and only airport of its time. The now defunct airport is a Grade II listed building and a tourist attraction.

Looking forward, Croydon has a large regeneration plan running. The plans aim to make the area London’s “third city” by 2020 and are pumping £3.5 billion into major “master plans” in East, West and Mid Croydon as well as Fairfield and Oldtown.

Croydon acts as a gateway from South London to Central London and has many major roads running through it, including Purely Way – great for commuters. The Borough has so many great opportunities of its own that you don’t have to see it only as a commuter choice for London (despite the fact it is), but also a great place to live and work.

The Brighton Mainline rail links Croydon with Sussex, Kent and Surrey to the South, and Central London to the north. The M25, M23 and A23 roads link Croydon with many key areas, including; Central London, Gatwick, Crawley and East Sussex.

There is also a massive public transport infrastructure running throughout Croydon with regular routes on train, tram and buses.
