Event description

Description

A comprehensive mooch around the historic Surrey town of Croydon, some nine miles south of Central London.

Our tour begins at London's first commercial airport, Croydon Aerodrome, which was operational from 1920 to 1959. A litany of remarkable air travel firsts. Today it is a museum and heritage centre, open only once a month, and this is it for September!

We'll then catch a bus to Croydon centre where LH Member, Blue Badge Guide and Croydon resident Gavin Webb will show us around this historic town.

Our walk will include but not restricted to: Old Town by Croydon Minster, Old Palace School, Surrey Street Market (charter 1273), Whitgift Almshouses. Then Victorian Croydon (Grants, Town Hall), 1960s and future developments (Fairfield Hall, Croydon College, street art etc.). Boxpark. At some point we'll hop on one of Croydon's trams.

We'll stop somewhere for a bite and a drink. We finish East Croydon station.

Finish time is approximate. Food, drink and local travel costs not included in price.
