The apartment is in the most prestigious area of historic Crystal Palace. The house is one of the oldest and most striking in the Crystal Palace area and can be seen in the impressionist painting of Pissarro (called Fox Hill). At the highest point in south London, the apartment has views over south London.

Leafy green walks are close by yet frequent trains take 15-25 min into the city centre for museums, clubs, and shows.

Crystal Palace park with its famous Victorian dinosaurs is 5 min walk. The park houses the National Sports Centre for tennis, swimming, squash etc.

Crystal Palace is popular with artists and has many excellent restaurants serving food from all over the world (Thai, Spanish, Indian, Chinese, French, Portuguese etc.).

The South East England region

South East London

Eating out in Crystal Palace is a must with excellent food from all regions of the globe. Crystal Palace park is the place to work up an apetite or for the more sedate, antique hunting is always good fun.

Not that far from the tourist attractions and quote, 'Great value for money'
We are glad when our guests have a good time. As the reviewer said, it is great value for money'. We are really not that far from the centre – the view from the end of the road is of St Paul's Cathedral, the Gherkin and the new impressive Shard. Frequent trains take 15-25 min to reach the central stations. Crystal Palace itself has character and things to see such as the Victorian dinosaur park. It also has many great restaurants of all cuisine and, unlike many city centre restaurants that cater for tourists, they serve great food at a great price.
This review has helpful suggestions that we will act on. The internet was giving problems at that time due to a frayed cable but that has now been fixed by our provider. We are working on the tender loving care of our historic building and have already rebuilt walls, repaired the driveway and had a new roof. We continue to decorate but another coat of paint is due soon. Although the station is not far, please do not struggle up the hill with suitcases – your Travelcard will cover buses and they are very frequent (every minute or so) from outside the train station and one takes a few minutes to bring you to the end of our road. There is also a station taxi firm that can help with suitcases. We do send details about all this when our guests book.
