The Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace

Anerley and Penge are located in south east London, seven miles away from the city centre in the Norwood and Crystal Palace area of south London. And indeed it was the Crystal Palace itself that put humble Anerley on the map: the huge glass structure built by Joseph Paxton was the centrepiece of the Great Exhibition of 1851, gazed at in wonder by thousands in Hyde Park before being moved lock stock to Sydenham Hill and then destroyed by fire in 1936.

The park that bears its name, beside Penge West station, is a nice place, however, in keeping with the Victorian atmosphere of the area and home to the currently closed National Sports Centre, whose future is uncertain. Penge (of which Anerley is a district, though the boundaries are blurry) is in parts a visually appealing place, filled with Victorian properties – there’s many former almshouses around here, dating back to its 19th century popularity as a ‘country retreat’ - and the old-school Crooked Billet boozer (99 High Street), the site of a public house for 200 years.

It’s a quiet suburb though: for shopping and restaurants, your best bet is to head to nearby Croydon, a major retail centre with leisure attractions galore.

Trains from Anerley Station call at London Bridge and East Croydon, and a tram connects Birkbeck to Croydon.
