This is one of the large shopping centres in Croydon and has pretty much everything under one roof with a good balance of shops and some eateries. Modern and clean.

The shops inside are nice but there is a lot of empty areas that are dark that give off a unwelcoming atmosphere. Everything is clean and there is a small childrens play area and shops for almost everyone including toys, beauty like nails and eyebrows,...More

You can find a good choice of shops. It is situated close to East Croydon station which has good connection to Gatwick Airport.

With Westfield on the horizon many leases must have finished/not been renewed, as there seem to be more and more empty premises. Marks and Spencer is the only department store (although Centrale shopping centre is literally 20feet away & has Debenhams and House of Fraser)....More

Sadly, I remember when the Whitgift Centre was new, shiny and trendy. My first job after university (many years ago) was in Croydon and this was the place to go to eat and shop. There were also two department stores in Croydon - Allders and...More

I have been visiting this centre since childhood and quite frankly it is now in need of serious regeneration. The internal centre itself is relatively clean but has shops closing round all of the place. The streets that lead to it have a dirty unkempt...More
