Midnight request line
Soon to be the London Borough of Culture, Croydon is shaking off its reputation and quickly becoming a vibrant hub of creativity in South London.
If you're a crate digger, Croydon is home to DnR Vinyl. This record store is probably the UK's leading UK garage stockist (along with grime, dubstep and bassline), with thousands of classic tracks in stock as well as new music regularly finding its way onto shelves. Tune into Croydon FM - Croydon's number one for new and emerging music, broadcasting live on 97.8 FM
When it comes to food, you can't go far wrong with a trip to Croydon Boxpark and the surrounding East Croydon area for casual or quick dining. "Fat Boys" Cafe is one of the famous local spots with the "Blow Out" breakfast challenge — finish it and get your money back! For something a little more formal, South Croydon's restaurant stretch has some great options.
When you're ready to come out of the studio, Croydon has a vast range of parks and green spaces. Beddington Park, with its cafe, historic church and river running through it is locals' top pick or try Waddon Ponds.
