Shopping in Croydon

Last weekend we took the bus to Croydon. It turned out to be rather exciting, as there were loads of shops, and two large shopping centres - unlike Peckham, which has mostly butcher shops.

Catheryn is very excited to be in Croydon.

The name Croydon comes from the Anglo-Saxon for 'valley of the crocuses', but you'd be hard-pushed to find a crocus there now. However, for a bit of high street shopping, I would recommend it over going to Oxford Street, or anywhere in central London, as it's not so busy, and there's more space, and the shops are closer to together.

The escalators in croydon are see-through - ground breaking technology and very exciting!

We took full advantage, and visited the discount book shop, and Poundland - a shop where all items cost a pound. Rocking!

Catheryn is so excited by shopping, she needs a coffee to recover.

If you want to have a good time, if you want fun and excitement, and if you have a spirit of true adventure, you must get yourselves down to Croydon, where a good time can be had by all. Don't miss it!
