Best Things To Do & Days Out In Croydon, Greater London

With heaps of fun things to do in Croydon, such as award-winning parks and attractions, your day out with the kids is sure to be great!

Croydon is London’s second largest borough and is on the cusp of a number of activities and attractions. With the big city just a stones-throw away, it’s a great place for families to base themselves to commute in and avoid the high prices of Central London Hotels.

Spend an afternoon in the town visiting the local museums to learn a bit more about its history or do a bit of shopping. If the weather chases you inside head to Tenpin Croydon where the bowling lanes, arcades and cafes will keep you entertained and fed until its time to go home.
