The Croydon Property Show – the essential event if you are looking to buy or rent in the borough
Searching for a property in this London borough? Register now for your free ticket.
Following the success of its inaugural event in 2018, the Croydon Property Show is back at Croydon Park Hotel on Saturday May 18 providing visitors with all the information they need to purchase or rent a property in one of London’s hotspots.
With house price averages currently one of the lowest in London, now is the perfect time to buy and invest in Croydon as it undergoes its £5.2 billion regeneration.
With retail-giants Hammerson and Unibail Rodamco Westfield and The Croydon Partnership investing in a new retail destination, Fairfield Halls due to reopen this September after a £30 million refurbishment and Crystal Palace expanding its Premier League Stadium, Croydon is becoming the retail and leisure capital of South London.

Now is the perfect time to purchase property in Croydon
Croydon’s skyline is changing too with some major residential schemes moving forward in 2019, including R&F Properties’ Queen’s Square development on the old Nestle site, Pocket Living’s Addiscombe Road scheme for first-time buyers and the Council’s development company Brick by Brick launching the first of its developments for sale and rent.
What are the transport links like?
Croydon also has excellent rail links – you can get to Victoria and London Bridge in a little over 15 minutes. These are set to be improved further with the Brighton Main Line upgrade, including plans to redevelop and expand East Croydon Station.
Overground routes from West Croydon offer quick and easy access to Canary Wharf and the East End, while Tramlink provides fast, direct routes to Wimbledon and south London.
What about education?
For those with families, the borough’s education facilities rival any in the UK as it is home to the world-renowned Brit School, Whitgift, Trinity and Croydon High.
As one of the greenest boroughs too there are plenty of beautiful parks to enjoy as well as being a stone’s throw from the Kent and Surrey countryside and the beaches of Brighton.
So, whether looking for a flat in a metropolitan centre or a family house in a quiet suburban street, Croydon has plenty to offer.

“We are looking forward to attending the Croydon Property Show and letting visitors know why they should set up their home in this amazing London borough.”
Paul Hackett, chief executive of Optivo, said: “I’ve worked in the borough for ten years and I think there’s never been a better time to move to Croydon. It’s such a vibrant, bustling place and has always had a fantastic community.
“It never stands still – Boxpark has been brilliant and an exciting cultural centre is opening in Fairfield Halls later this year. And with London Bridge and Gatwick only 15 minutes away, it’s also incredibly well connected.”

John Wade, head of Croydon sales & marketing at Red Loft, said: “Croydon is the perfect place to hold a Property Show. It is the epi-centre of regeneration and development in London – a borough that has seen a resurgence in independent businesses and new homes.
“With fantastic transport links and diverse neighbourhoods, it offers London living amongst established and thriving communities.
“With its green spaces and bustling, creative high streets, the borough is an attractive place to live. Now is the time to buy, with developers such as Brick by Brick building homes across the Croydon borough that are built and designed for the people of this great London borough.”

Paul Mahoney, managing director at Nova Financial, said: “When it comes to investing in property in Greater London, Croydon can’t be overlooked.
“At a lower than average price point, higher than average yield and when considering easy commutability, significant job growth and infrastructure spending; Croydon is perfectly placed to gentrify and experience significant capital growth with sustained rental demand.”
