Croydon is one of London’s top three commercial districts, with a wide and growing variety of office space for large and small businesses alike. The Body Shop, Superdrug and HMRC have recently moved to the town and there are clusters of business sectors, ranging from technology and engineering to insurance and financial services. The redevelopment of the Whitgift Centre promises thousands of new jobs.
Croydon’s town centre is undergoing a £5.25 billion regeneration programme. The new Westfield shopping centre and the £30m refurbishment of the Fairfield Halls alongside the development of the College Green cultural quarter will transform the town’s shopping and leisure experience. New transport infrastructure will link these new facilities to surrounding areas, as well as improving travel times to the south coast and central London.
Croydon has a year-round offer of festivals, theatre, markets, concerts, comedy shows, and sporting events, both outdoors and in exciting venues such as Boxpark, Stanley Halls, The Clocktower, and the soon-to-be-reopened Fairfield Halls. There are also many grassroots shows and activities happening every day of the week in small venues across the borough.
