With its iconic park, spectacular views of London and enviable housing stock Crystal Palace and Gipsy Hill are among the most popular spots in South East London.
Crystal Palace and Gipsy Hill are incredibly popular destinations for home buyers seeking green spaces whilst also benefiting from superb transport links to Central London. This part of Upper Norwood takes its name from the ‘Crystal Palace’, the rebuilt ‘Great Exhibition’ after it was moved from Hyde Park and rebuilt before burning down in 1936. Crystal Palace Park still contains much of the history of the Great Exhibition including the museum, the original Palace footings and Grade I listed dinosaurs. Now under the stewardship of The Crystal Palace Park Trust the park continues to be a key focal point for local residence.
The ‘Triangle’ comprised of Church Road, Westow Hill and Westow Street, offers locals a vast array of independent boutiques and cafes as well as numerous fabulous bars and eateries. The area has a great mixture of different property styles including grand Victorian Villas, rows of Victorian and Edwardian terraces some of which have been converted into apartments alongside more modern properties.
Transport links for the area are provided by Crystal Palace and Gipsy Hill train stations with regular services to London Bridge and London Victoria in addition to the London Overground from Crystal Palace. Numerous bus routes also serve the area running into Central London and out to Kent.
