The SpaceLOCATION Our house is based in the suburbs of London, in South Norwood, which is in the London Borough of Croydon, 16km / 10 miles by road from London Bridge in the centre. We enjoy excellent day-time transport links to central London from Norwood Junction Station (zone 4), which is 0.8km / 0.5 miles away. Most of the railway trains to London Bridge from here take 12 minutes - you can use them with an Oyster card or Travelcard along with all other kinds of London transport for just £8.90 all day. These are very frequent express trains (5 to 7 trains per hour) from the south of England which make a last stop here before their final destination at London Bridge. Our local station is also on the London Overground network - similar to the tube (4 trains per hour) and appears on all London Underground maps (for more details on transport, see below). Gatwick is our closest airport 22 miles away (c.20 minutes by train from East Croydon, then 10 minutes bus or tram ride here, or 4 minutes on another train). We can also be reached by public transport from all other London airports. THE HOUSE & BEDROOM This Edwardian terraced house built in 1910, is designed over 3 floors. It is centrally heated, fully double glazed, newly carpeted and decorated, bright, clean and modernised. Your bedroom is located on the middle floor. This newly refurbished double room has a double bed with a firm, orthopeadic mattress, 2 bedside tables with bedside lamps, a chest of drawers and a wardrobe, large mirror, your own sofa for relaxation, a coffee table and a Freeview TV. The sofa can even be extended into a second double bed to accommodate 2 more people (in the same room). The room is 4.3m x 3.3m in size. In your room, clean sheets and towels, free broadband wi-fi, a kettle, tea, coffee, sugar and a mini fridge are included. Guest AccessPRIVATE BATHROOM You will have access to your own, large, adjacent bathroom on the first floor, with shower over bath, where a washing machine is also available for use for a small fee. This private bathroom is reserved just for our guests and is on the same floor as your bedroom. We also have our own second bathroom with shower, so you don't need to share with us. We only have a child who needs a bath. We will make sure our child has a bath when you are out, so this will not affect your stay. BREAKFAST Breakfast is optional and is charged at only £2 each for adults (£1 for children under 10 year old), which is payable when you check-out. It includes cereals with milk (cornflakes, muesli or coco pops), toast (on brown bread), a selection of spreads including four kinds of jam (strawberry, raspberry, apricot, orange marmalade), lemon curd, butter and margarine, peanut butter and chocolate spread, English breakfast tea, fresh and instant coffee, hot chocolate, orange juice and fruit (usually a choice of bananas, apples, oranges, kiwis) and is served in the dining room. Please check the house rules for other details on guest access. Interaction with GuestsABOUT US We are husband and wife, both professionals; we live in the house and keep the place clean and tidy. We have two children and also a cat, Ronnie, who is confined to the ground floor and is not able to get upstairs. There are no other B&B guests staying in the house to share with, although we may have other members of our family staying with us sometimes (using our bathroom, not yours). This is a friendly and homely household. We're looking for guests that are non-smoking (or smoke outside), equally tidy, easy going and considerate. We are happy to help you on your travels and able to give you lots of advice about visiting London and how to get around. We often help people over breakfast - an ideal time to chat! The NeighborhoodLOCAL AREA We live on a very quiet road which is ideal for getting a good night's sleep! The house is only 2 mins walk from the local swimming pool and gym, a local Tesco supermarket and other shops, GP surgeries and the beautiful “Country Park” nature reserve. A list of local restaurants is in the guest folder - we can help you find them. There are also many local take-away hot cooked food vendors within 2 to 3 minutes walk (see my guidebook). Getting AroundTRANSPORT We enjoy excellent day-time transport links to central London from Norwood Junction within c.10 minutes walk. A zone 1 to 6, one day Travelcard or Oyster costs just £(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) before 9:30am Mon-Fri; children aged 11 - 15 are £3.60 with an adult, under 11s are free with an adult) and can be used unlimited on the London Underground (tubes), National Rail trains, the London Overground (like tubes), buses and trams, all day. At Norwood Junction, choose from: *National Rail: Most trains go to London Bridge. Fast / express trains take 12 minutes. Day times there are between 5 to 7 fast trains per hour + 2 slow trains per hour (last train back 00:36 Mon-Sat). (NB. Between 20th December 2014 to 4 January 2015 there will be no 12 minute train services from Norwood Junction to London Bridge due to engineering works, but you can still take the London Overground to Canada Water or get to London Victoria (near Buckingham Palace) via East Croydon.) There are also trains from Norwood Junction to Clapham Junction and to Victoria (7 trains per hour, some changing via East Croydon). On the railway map I have put in my pictures, I have highlighted the London Bridge connection in pink. *London Overground: This connects to places like Canada Water and Whitechapel. These trains look similar to the London Underground, but are just above the ground! Takes 24 minutes; 4 trains per hour in peak times; last direct train from Canada Water 11:56pm, Mon to Sat). See the orange line on the London Underground map in my photos - Norwood Junction is on it. Other transport options: *Local Buses: There are lots of buses from Portland Road, just around the corner from my house going to Norwood Junction and to East Croydon. *Trams: There are tram services at Arena 10 minutes walk away that go to East Croydon (10 mins), Wimbledon (30 mins) and Beckenham Junction. *Night Buses. Because we are 10 miles from the centre, night buses, which run all night, will take longer (by taxi at night, it should take about 30 minutes). There are several routes, either: (1) Take the N68 from Tottenham Court Road, Holborn or Waterloo to Upper Norwood (30-40 min). Or: (2) Take the N2 from Trafalgar Square or Victoria, then change in West Norwood for the N68 to Upper Norwood. Or: (3) Take the N109 from Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus or Oxford Circus to West Croydon and then (i) a 10 min taxi ride, or (ii) take the N68 to Upper Norwood. The walk from Upper Norwood is about 15-20 minutes. *Night Trains: There are night trains from East Croydon to Gatwick and Victoria all night. We are therefore very conveniently located for night-time / early-morning travel for early morning flights and the Eurostar. When leaving from my house late at night (after 1am): (1) Take a taxi for £7 to East Croydon; (2) A train from East Croydon to either London Victoria, Luton Airport or St Pancras International; (3) A coach from Victoria Coach Station to any airport. These services run all night! :) When travelling from the centre to my house very late at night (after 00:36), there are two options by train. Either: (1) Take a train from Victoria to East Croydon (journey time 23 min). These run every hour, on the hour, all night. Then take a taxi (10 mins; £10). Or: (2) Take a train from St Pancras International to East Croydon (journey time 37 min; trains leave every 30 minutes all night). Then take a taxi as above. Weekend engineering work happens frequently across London's transport network. We advise potential guests to check before booking, what will be happening on the railways, by visiting the "UK National Railway Enquiries" website (ojp.nationalrail). If you enter the journey planner, then type in Norwood Junction and London Bridge as the stations, you can check how long the journey will take on a particular day. It has data for the next 4 months. Weekend engineering work also happens on the tubes elsewhere in London - you could check the "Transport for London status updates" website for this - just change the date on the top right. If our local station is affected, we will direct you to East Croydon (10 minutes away by bus, the stop is around the corner from the house), from where you can ride to Victoria by train (20 minutes). You are strongly advised NOT to take a black taxi through the centre of London during the day, especially during peak traffic, to reach my house, as this will be extremely expensive! However, I know many local reliable and cheap taxi companies that can pick you up or take you to airports and stations. These must be pre-booked. For a group of 4, they are usually cheaper than using public transport. Other Things to NoteFREE PARKING! Plenty of free, non-restricted street parking is available right outside the house. Parking is therefore free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! You will not find this in the majority of London. (Please do not park in the disabled bay further down the road, which is for a disabled neighbour). SECURITY All areas of the house have smoke / fire detectors and extinguishers. Each one can turn on all the others, making a massive loud noise everywhere, so you will be very safe! The keys use EVVA high security locks which are copy-protected and the house can be alarmed at night. We are fully insured for public liability up to £2 million. Beware of other listings that do not offer the same level of (or any) security and insurance.

The NeighborhoodNEWSFLASH- Now open next to East Croydon Station is the amazing new dining and entertainment concept: BOXPARK. It’s the world’s first pop-up food mall – fusing the concepts of the modern street food market and placing local and global brands side by side, to create a unique dining and entertainment destination. Entirely constructed out of refitted shipping containers, Boxpark utilises a unique position in being able to offer affordable and flexible conditions for lifestyle brands, cafes, restaurants and bars to trade and succeed. The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, said: “One of the things I love most about London is that its cultural gems are not just limited to the city centre. Around every corner of the capital there is something new and exciting to discover and Croydon is full of fantastic things to see and do. “Having just been named the fastest growing economy in the UK, Croydon is fast emerging as a hub for culture and development thanks to the extensive regeneration it has been undergoing in recent years. Growing London’s cultural sector is one of my core priorities and I’m delighted to see top innovators and entertainers setting their sights on Croydon. Boxpark will be a great addition to the town centre and a festival of this scale and calibre is the perfect way for Croydon to really get itself noticed on the capital’s cultural map.” Boxpark Croydon will follow its successful sister site in Shoreditch, opening Croydon’s doors to over 40 rising food & drink traders including MeatLiquor, Chilango, Mama Lan, Breakfast Club and many more. And it’s not just about the food! It’s not all about retail… Boxpark aims to consistently deliver an exciting and wide variety of food and beverage but entertainment and events will form a big part of the scene, bringing as much fresh, vibrant and exiting talent to Croydon as possible. Croydon town center is a fifteen minute walk or short bus hop away and the area is very well served by public transport. The iconic Whitgift shopping center has 140 retailers under one roof, is open seven days a week and central Croydon has an abundance of restaurants and bars. There are convenience stores and super-markets within a few minutes walk. Croydon has the largest population of all the Boroughs in London, and with Croydon Town acting as the heart of the borough; it could almost be a city in itself. The area has always been a leader in financial, business and cultural sectors and is considered to be very well balanced with great living and working opportunities mixed with a bustling town centre and many green open areas. It also has a great alternative/arts scene, making living or staying in Croydon an increasingly attractive choice for anyone not wanting to pay higher London prices. The Borough of Croydon formed in 1965 and the name derives from Saxon times, meaning “valley of the crocuses!” – Crocuses are a plant in the iris family, for those wondering! As mentioned above, Croydon has always been a leader in financial and business sectors; this dates back to when the area boasted the city’s first and only airport of its time. The now defunct airport is a Grade II listed building and a tourist attraction. Looking forward, Croydon has a large regeneration plan running. The plans aim to make the area London’s “third city” by 2020 and are pumping £3.5 billion into major “master plans” in East, West and Mid Croydon as well as Fairfield and Oldtown. Croydon acts as a gateway from South London to Central London and has many major roads running through it, including Purely Way – great for commuters. The Borough has so many great opportunities of its own that you don’t have to see it only as a commuter choice for London (despite the fact it is), but also a great place to live and work. The Brighton Mainline rail links Croydon with Sussex, Kent and Surrey to the South, and Central London to the north. The M25, M23 and A23 roads link Croydon with many key areas, including; Central London, Gatwick, Crawley and East Sussex. There is also a massive public transport infrastructure running throughout Croydon with regular routes on train, tram and buses. Getting AroundThere is a bus route directly outside the property and East Croydon Station is just a 12 minute walk away. It is a major transport hub for trains buses and trams. East Croydon Station is your gateway to London and the South East, use your Oyster or Travel card for convenient, frequent and speedy travel Directly into Central London. London Victoria in 16 mins and London Bridge in 20 mins. Once in Central London you can access all of London's transport network, Underground, trains, trams and buses and see all that the one of the worlds leading cities has to offer. Direct non stop and frequent 24 hour service to London Gatwick Airport normally in just 14 mins makes travelling to the airport a breeze.
