A Street Art Tour Of Croydon

We thought we would finally get our Street Art Tour of Croydon put together and share here with anyone interested. This walk will take you 1-2 hours (depending how long you stop to admire the artwork and take photos along the way) and is a short walk from either East Croydon or West Croydon Station. Our walk begins and ends at East Croydon, where the art trail begins pretty much as soon as you leave the station and can be completed in a mere 10 easy steps.

1. Leave East Croydon Train Station and turn right where at the first turning on your right you will see a colourful fruit stall decorated by Artista and Morgandy.
