South Norwood Area
Found in the London Borough of Croydon, South Norwood is an increasingly popular option for people looking to settle down in a convenient yet affordable location.
There is no denying that many people appreciate South Norwood for the 125-acre country park which dominates the south-eastern side of the area.
Knowing that there is such an ample open space close to your home appeals to many people, and it is often a very welcome attraction for families.
Educational options in South Norwood are appealing
Of course, families need to be practical when looking for a new home. One of the leading priorities is choosing an area that has suitable schools, and you’ll be pleased to know South Norwood will please most parents in this regard.
The two secondary schools in South Norwood are well noted, and South Norwood Primary School is a huge favourite with many local parents. The wealth of positive reviews for the school on Google suggests parents are pleased with the way their kids are educated and looked after.
The area also plays host to Premier League with Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park located in the area. The stadium is one of the more compact grounds in the Premier League, so doesn’t suffer from a massive influx of football fans semi-regularly, unlike some parts of the country.
Norwood Junction Station is in South Norwood, and this provides quick and straightforward access to the heart of London. It takes less than 15 minutes to travel from Norwood Junction to London Bridge Station, which is ideal for many commuters, especially those eventually making their way to the City of London. Even the slower services to London only take around 20 minutes, so the commute shouldn’t be too arduous.
There’s also a four-minute train journey travel time between Norwood Junction and East Croydon station so anyone looking to move between the two areas will face no difficulties or delays.
South Norwood residents are well connected
While South Norwood has plenty on offer for residents, the convenience of the daily commute from this location makes it a fantastic choice for many professionals. Croydon has gathered a lot of publicity of late because of the improvements and development work in the area, but not everyone is looking to live in an area that is changing.
South Norwood provides a different style of home-life, and there will be some buyers keen to settle down in this part of London. There isn’t much of a difference in property prices between South Norwood and Croydon, so there is no need to limit yourself to one of the two options, you have the freedom to focus on the area that best suits your needs.
