Finding Us

There are two useful websites to plan journeys in the London area :
            - TFL (Transport For London) -

As services can vary from day-to-day, we recommend that you check at least one or preferably both of these websites before you travel.

From London Gatwick airport, it is only 15 minutes by train to East Croydon + a 15 minute taxi to Crystal Palace; or 23 miles by road (in the direction of London).

From London City airport, it is approx 45 minutes by train.

From London Heathrow, it is approx 90 minutes by train.

From London Luton and London Stansted, it’s approx 100 minutes.

Free parking is available (when booked in advance) for one vehicle on the driveway.  The postcode for the entrance to the house at 1 Patterson Road is SE19 2LA ; but the driveway is at the end of our garden, off the top of Milestone Road.

Our nearest train station is Crystal Palace which is served by Southern Rail and also London Overground (which links to the Jubilee Line on the London Underground network at Canada Water).

Whichever London airport you arrive at, please ensure that you buy an Oyster Card (travel card) and top it up with credit. The Oyster Card will enable you to travel around the city flexibly by train, bus, tube, and tram, and it is cheaper and more convenient than paying for single trips. Or if each person has bank card with a "contactless" icon, you can use that instead and it charges the same.

From Crystal Palace Station to Patterson Road:
To walk to our house, turn left out of the station and immediate right up Ledrington Road, then cross Anerley Hill and walk down the road opposite called Cintra Park.  Then turn first right into Milestone Road and walk uphill to the top.  We are the corner house on the left-hand-side with a big wall around it.

OR if you have heavy luggage, come out of the station turn left to the end, cross Anerley Hill, and catch any bus one stop up the hill. Walk up to the traffic lights, turn left into Church Road, and then take the first left for Milestone Road and Patterson Road. We are the house on the corner with white and grey walls and black railings, with palm trees in the front garden.
