How long have you lived in Croydon?
Nearly 17 years (incredibly)

What’s the coolest thing about Croydon? Croydon Saffron Central – the world’s largest urban saffron farm which grows our namesake flower*, the crocus,  right in the heart of the town centre. *’Croindene’ or ‘Croh-denu’ are Anglo-Saxon for ‘the valley of the crocus’ – the origin of the town’s name.
