Purley is a leafy but vibrant London suburb that possesses the harmony of a thriving high street, dining and bar scene, as well as numerous choices for shopping.
Leisure and recreation are well served in Purley, with a multiplex cinema, bowling, a leisure centre and numerous golf courses nearby. The town also enjoys close proximity and easy access to numerous parks and open countryside.
Purley is served by rail from two stations on the London-to-Brighton mainline, with direct trains to and from London Bridge, Victoria and Gatwick Airport. These are all accessible within 30 minutes, and Brighton in under an hour.
Multiple tram and bus routes also stop in the centre of Purley, and the town is an easy gateway to the M25 and southern England by road. The natural splendour of the South Downs, as well as the coasts of Sussex and Kent, are all reachable in little over an hour.
£5bn of economic and cultural investment is currently underway across Croydon.
This has already seen the arrival of independent fashion and dining space, Boxpark – already a renowned leisure concept in other areas of London – and work will soon be underway on the 1.5 million sq.ft Westfield shopping centre.
Croydon’s Fairfield Halls are also getting a £30 million makeover into a state of the art performance venue at the heart of a stunning new cultural quarter.
In Purley itself, there are plans for further regeneration of housing, retail and a multi-use state-of-the-art building for the community, which will accommodate sporting, leisure, meeting and retail activities for the whole community, just minutes from Venture Lofts.
