A Boxpark has opened its second branch here, the first in Shoreditch. Westfield will open in Croydon by the year 2020. All signs point towards a boom period for London’s southern-most borough.
We struggled to believe it ourselves, and had to go check it out. Watch the video below to see how we enjoyed our time.

July 2017 | City in spotlight
By the time August rolls around, London summer and all its revelry has hit full throttle. As we’ve talked about in a previous post, London is jam-packed with festival after festival spanning all sizes, styles and vibes throughout June and July. Never fear, however, as the fun continues into August, with the city seeing some of the best festivals of the year take place.
It’s finally here. The UK has thrown off its cloudy jacket and let the sun in. As the temperatures rocket the temptation to forget everything else off in favour of soaking up some rays can become overwhelming. With the added excitement of the Rio Olympics to be enjoyed in August, it’s all getting a bit too much.
