This is an architectural tour of Croydon – suitable for walking or cycling – which showcases an area of London which has been reimagined, replanned and rebuilt perhaps more than any other area.
It is a paper self-guided tour – led by Katrina Navickas, historian of protest and public space – featuring engaging text and images which can be enjoyed equally in the field or in the comfort of your home.
The Croydon Printed Tour Guide is part of a new series of Pocket London tours exploring our city’s most compelling architecture. Published once a month, Pocket London is available as a subscription or via our shop.
Highlights of the Croydon Printed Tour Guide include examples of space-age architecture such as Richard Siefert and Partners' Number One Croydon, and the playful Croydon Fire Station by Riches and Blythin.
