Some stupid person has just offered me alot of cash to move to Croydon and work there, does anyone have any ideas how much the houses are to rent and what type of area it is.
Only 2 types of people live in Beckenham. The first are those that can't afford Bromley - the second are those that are moving up in the world from Croydon.TedTheDog said:West Wickham is the land that time couldnt be arsed with, and is where old people go to die. It has all the appeal of a dog turd on a golf course, but only half the nightlife.
Croydon is where to go for a stabbing if you cant afford Liverpool. It was bombed flat in the war and lovingly recreated in steel reinforced concrete slabs in the 50's and 60's and longs for the Luftwaffes return. It has the Whitgift shopping centre that is crowded beyond belief on slow days, many people promenading in their shell suits and showing their lambert & butlers off to the masses.
I live in Beckenham which has outrageously rich people lving in big houses in some parts, and the rest is thousand of flats... mile after mile of blocks of flats in fact, for the riff raff like me.
Beckenham has a LOT of pubs and restaraunts and was the first town in the UK to be completely covered by public CCTV. Its there for a reason.
Civic pride, I've heard of it.
No way, we've got that "crazy" thing going on, which is way better than just plain old "it moves, it gets stabbed" thing croydon has.Dubbs said:If I lived in Thornton Heath I'd tell people it's Croydon to go UP the social pecking order!!!
