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.
Norbury Station is located on London Road, and is in Travelcard Zone 3 of the London Tube. The train takes 20 minutes to Victoria, and runs every 10-15 minutes along the Southern Line.
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. Olde Goa, located on London Road just past the Lloyds Bank serves authentic Goan cuisine. You can also buy mixed spices to try and recreate some of the dishes at home.
Norbury has its own fitness centre, Nuffield Fitness and Leisure Centre that offers a 3 month gym plan, a fully functioning spin centre, outdoor tennis courts, a swimming pool and a sauna/steam room. It is also served by the only Olympic ice rink in London at the Streatham Ice and Leisure Centre.
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.
There is a local library open 5 days a week (excluding Wednesday and Sunday) from 9:00-18:00 on weekdays and until 17:00 on weekends. There are also two large doctor's surgeries, Norbury Health Centre and Fairview Medical Centre which both have disabled access.
The A23 has the usual South London traffic and it is the main route in and out of London. The Sainsbury’s offers 300 car parking spaces to customers for free, and the second cheapest is Granville Gardens, which costs £1.60 for 2 hours.
The area has access to some incredible schools, many with outstanding Ofsted ratings. For primary schools, there is Kensington Avenue Primary with a rating of ‘good’, and Norbury School with an ‘outstanding’ rating. For secondary schools, Norbury Manor Enterprise College for girls is tailored for girls between the ages of 11-18 and is Ofsted rated Outstanding, while Harris City Academy Crystal Palace was also outstanding as of 2014.
