You may think Croydon is just jam packed with 1960s architecture... and yes, it has its fair share. But it isn't devoid of characterful culture too. Check out the Elizabethan Whitgift almshouses or Croydon Minster, which is the burial place of six archbishops of Canterbury, for your history fix. Or visit the Museum of Croydon or Croydon Airport Visitor Centre - both fantastic indoor locations that could be just what you need to get out & about on a rainy day.
There's nothing nicer on those balmy summer days when only the outdoors will do to take in the fantastic trails and walks around Croydon. Addington Hills (Shirley Hills woods), Coombe Woods in South Croydon and South Norwood Country Park all have amazing outdoor walking to offer everyone, young and old alike. You could even use one of the many cycle routes in the area to get there - click here for a great website shows both the urban and rural routes that offer the best options for cyclists.
