‘Postwar Architecture of Croydon’

Museum of Croydon, Katharine St
Croydon, CR0 1NX United Kingdom

Back to What's On

A free architecture heritage walk, exploring Croydon’s urban history and its iconic modernist buildings.

As part of the Little Manhattan project, which captures and preserves stories from the local community focusing on the area’s urban landscape and in particular, the skyline that rose above the town in the post-war period between the 1950s and 70s. This regenerative building boom transformed Croydon from being a town made up of traditional brick buildings to an architecturally modern urban space rivalling the design, skyline and environment of major cities, earning it the nickname ‘Little Manhattan’.

This event is supported by This is Croydon, London Borough of Culture.
