Neighbourhood and heritage walks

Addington Village heritage walk

Dating back to at least Anglo-Saxon times, Addington is an ancient manorial estate and one of the oldest settlements in the borough of Croydon. Its prestigious ownership – especially by the Archbishops of Canterbury – is reflected in the quality of the historic buildings and surrounding green space. The quaint village retains its historic character and rural charm. 

This walk guides you through the historic village, using key buildings to explain the area’s history. The area’s special architectural and historic interest is recognised by being a conservation area.
