About Croydon

Croydon forms part of Greater London and is a south London town in the London Borough of Croydon. It has just over 100 parks and green spaces and lies on the transport corridor between the capital and the south coast.

It was originally part of Surrey and was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as having a population of 365 and a church and a mill. Croydon grew during the Middle Ages as a market town and in fact the renowned Surrey Street Market was founded as far back as 1276. During the Middle Ages, the town was also a centre for brewing, leather tanning and the production of charcoal.

As Brighton developed as a fashionable resort in the 1780's Croydon became an important stop-over for stage coaches. At the beginning of the 19th century the world's first public horse drawn railway was established from Croydon to Wandsworth. Later the development of the railway contributed to the growth of Croydon as a commuter town for the City of London and further afield.

In 1839 the London and Croydon Railway opened which went from London Bridge to West Croydon. This contributed to a major population growth and during the 19th century Croydon's population increased 23 fold. The rapid rise in population caused significant health problems, particularly in the working class district of the Old Town where some of the properties became damp and overcrowded. As a result Croydon was one of the country's first towns to have a Local Board of Health which brought about a number of benefits including the creation of a water supply network, sewers and sewage disposal works.

As the town grew it became a popular place to settle for members of the Victorian middle classes who could get to the City of London in just 15 minutes by train.

In the early 20th century Croydon became a significant industrial area for car manufacturing and metal work. It was also the location of London's main airport from World War One until Heathrow became the principal airport after World War Two.

By the mid-20th century Croydon became a retail and service driven economy which saw a rise in the number of roads and office blocks built and the foundation of the Whitgift Shopping Centre in 1969. In fact Croydon is now the largest place to shop in the south east, with the exception of Central London.

Croydon became part of Greater London in 1965. Its main railway station, East Croydon, is a major transport hub and is the tenth busiest railway station in London.
