With ISLAND currently one of the most talked-about developments providing residential Accommodation In Croydon, we’ve assisted a fair share of people with queries about the local area – especially with regard to leisure and shopping opportunities. |
Our first suggestion is only a 10 minute walk from ISLAND, and happens to be one of the largest shopping developments in the whole of London.
The Whitgift Centre first opened in 1970 after five years of construction, and has since developed into one of South London’s best-loved shopping centres.
All that you’ll ever need, right on your doorstep
As you stroll through the Whitgift Centre, you’ll see several familiar names; major fashion retailers such as Topshop, H&M and River Island have all made a home in the centre, as have such stores as Marks and Spencer, BHS and Monsoon.
The Whitgift also plays host to specialist stores – the likes of Mothercare, JD Sports and Clarks Shoes all make an appearance, along with countless others.
More than just a shopping centre
You’ll also find a range of lifestyle stores in the centre. Various hairdressers and beauty stores can be found, as can a dental surgery, a travel agent, banks and even a kids' club.
As for dining opportunities, the centre is home to several cafes and fast food restaurants – with familiar names such as Starbucks and Subway making an appearance – as well as more adventurous options, including Tashi Sushi and Bishops Wine Bar.
A part of Croydon Vision 2020
The Whitgift Centre is participating in Croydon Vision 2020, an exciting regeneration program involving the refurbishment and development of various residential buildings, shopping centres and transport links in the town.
The centre is set to be combined with another shopping centre, which will add approximately 200,000 square metres to the building. This, in turn, will bring further retail, leisure and residential opportunities.
For further information about the Whitgift Centre, what there is to do in Croydon and/or Croydon Vision 2020, we recommend contacting the ISLAND team.
