Bordering Streatham and Crystal Palace, this often overlooked area in the London borough of Croydon is definitely one to watch on the up and coming list.
Considering its ideal location 7.6 miles from London and its bordering neighbourhoods, you wouldn’t want to miss the chance to snap up a property here.

TanGia, which is 3 miles away from Norbury and takes around 15 minutes to drive, offers Mediterranean cuisine as well as several vegan and vegetarian options.

Norbury is surrounded by a host of green spaces ready and waiting for you to enjoy. Streatham Common is 0.7 miles away and offers a tranquil place to dog walk and explore the Rookery. In Norbury itself there is Norbury Hall Park and Norbury Park, both offering a little slice of countryside peace in among the bustling commuter town.
On a rainy day, indulge your sweet tooth. Norbury is home to several guilty pleasure cafes, including Creams, an ice cream parlour offering the waffles and sundaes of your wildest dreams. Or delve into the Eggfree Cake Box, for exactly what it says on the tin, and see if you can taste the difference.
Norbury is served by Lidl and a Sainsbury’s, perfect for your weekly shopping needs. There is also Tesco express on London Road.
Satyam Yoga offers several different types of classes for a huge range of ages and skill levels. There is also an Odeon cinema 1.9 miles away in Streatham for a more traditionally entertaining evening of Hollywood blockbusters and popcorn.
