Crystal Palace, named after the famous iron and glass exhibition building which tragically burnt down in 1936, is well known for its main thoroughfare nicknamed the ‘triangle’ by its residents.
The triangle includes vintage boutiques, numerous restaurants with influences from around the world, trendy bars and typical English pubs which have made the area popular with young professionals and families alike.
Crystal Palace hosts an array of local amenities including Crystal Palace Park, National Sports Stadium and numerous restaurants including the popular Joanna’s and Tamnag Thai.
With direct train links to London Bridge and Victoria, and the East London overground line, transport links are some of the best in the area. The station itself is situated on the edge of Crystal Palace park (once the home of the palace) now housing its large sports centre and stadium. The park is used throughout the year for concerts, firework displays and outdoor activities including charity events.
