One of greater London's 11 metropolitan centres, Croydon is located under 10 miles from the centre of the capital. This makes the area ideal territory for anyone working in London. This locality sits south of the capital, on one of the major routes to the South Coast of England, so it is an extremely popular location. It boasts its own town centre for localized shopping, a train station connecting it to the rest of the county, and offices. Everything you need to live in convenience and comfort. Plus, the area is only going to get better with an urban planning initiative scheduled for 2020.

The average flat sells in the region of £180,000, while a detached house can easily sell for more than £400,000. Due to its proximity to the capital, the area is not the cheapest.
