Croydon is a major town which is located South of London. 

Recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, Croydon was historically a part of Surrey and, at that time, had a mill, a church and over 350 villagers. By late Saxon times, Croydon had become the centre of a large estate belonging to the Archbishop of Canterbury. The name Croydon is likely to derive from the term Crocus Valley, which sounds rather pretty when considering the urban metropolis that Croydon has become.  Today, Croydon has a thriving theatre (The Fairfield Halls) and the Whitgift Shopping Centre with its many cafes, coffee shops and restaurants.
