Besides its busy nightlife and being host to the Home Office, Croydon is probably best known for its two shopping centres - Centrale and the Whitgift Centre. Both centres accommodate a plethora of high street stores, with a number of boutique stores occasionally interrupting the chain of big brand retailers.
If you're planning on taking a drive into Croydon for a spot of shopping you'll want to get there early to secure a parking space and, as a little tip, the Centrale car park is the most convenient to return to after a good day's shop.
The Whitgift Centre has a car park of equal size but, although not far from the shopping action, is not as quick to exit from. The best alternative is the small car park behind Surrey Street market but, being situated behind a narrow street market of fruit sellers and takeaway vans in addition to being away from the main shopping centres, it's not the most pleasant or convenient.
Of the two shopping centres, Centrale is definitely the higher end of the market, housing the likes of Zara, Aldo, French Connection, LK Bennett, Sony Centre, Debenhams and House of Fraser to name a few. The Whitgift centre is older and so not as plush but is still home to Marks and Spencers, H&M, Monsoon, River Island, Allders, Superdry and a host of independent fashion and electronics boutique stores. You'll also find a fairly wide choice of food outlets in both that should keep you fairly well fuelled for the day.
