New Addington

The London Borough of Croydon is London’s most southern borough. It’s the largest London borough by population.

Croydon is mentioned in the Domesday Book – from a small market town it expanded into one of the most populous areas on the fringe of London. It's currently going through a large regeneration project, predicted to attract more businesses and tourists.

Croydon is full of culture. Its landmarks include the Croydon Clocktower - an arts venue opened by Queen Elizabeth II, the Shirley Windmill - one of the few surviving large windmills in Greater London, and the BRIT School - which has produced artists such as Adele and Amy Winehouse.
