Set between Streatham to the west and Crystal Palace to the east, West Norwood is a hidden gem that has much to offer.
Norwood Road is the main artery of this vibrant mini-metropolis, where you can shop for everything from fashion to fresh fish (the lovely Whittaker’s fishmongers), and take in a performance at the South London Theatre.
If you’re keen on shabby chic and all things vintage, check out the Rosebery auctions set in a converted cinema, and don’t miss the monthly West Norwood Feast street market, brimming with everything from food to homemade goods.
There are plenty of places to enjoy fresh air too. Norwood Park offers perfect panoramic views of the London skyline, an outdoor gym and a club for toddlers, while the Victorian gothic West Norwood Cemetery is a peaceful place for a weekend walk.
From the traditional to the modern, and everything in between, West Norwood is a shining example of an up and coming community where the future is bright.
