Crystal Palace Area Guide

Getting around
Crystal Palace enjoys a fast and frequent service to Victoria and London Bridge and is just 24 minutes away from Canary Wharf (and 40 minutes away from Highbury and Islington) via the Overground. Road and bus links are good, and Gatwick is just an hour away.

Local vibe
Although the iconic crystal palace itself is long gone, the surrounding parkland offers a great green lung for locals. But Crystal Palace still has a distinctly urban vibe, making it popular with young couples, professionals and families alike, who don’t need to venture far for great restaurants and bars such as Joanna’s, Westow House with its live weekend music and the fabulous Crystal Palace Market open kitchen and the Exhibition Rooms for lovely food and cocktails in the basement.

Schools
The quality of the area’s primary and secondary schools in the area is a big draw for families. Three primaries in Crystal Palace and Gipsy Hill, all run by the Gipsy Hill Federation are popular choices. The Harris City Academy Crystal Palace and the Harris South Norwood Academy are high performing academies and there is also easy access to the range of independent schools in Dulwich.

What's special?
Of course the grounds of the Crystal Palace are wonderful…but we think that the charming urban feel is what makes Crystal Palace stand out. You’ve got everything you need here, from great shops and cafes to things to do for the children and a rather sophisticated night out.
