I worked at the Norbury hotel when Harry Bygraves was the manager I was 21 at the time.1973 I met Max B and Harry and his wife were fantastic to work for I lived in with my husband and my 2 year old son I remember we decorated our room and Harry thought we did a great job he gave us back all the money we,'d spent. Loved it there and we often took our son to the park Wii think it was Norbury park ,great memories , I'm from Yorkshire .
You could look at the catchment for the improving Norbury Manor primary state school. Nurseries are good like Purple Panda and Daffodils. Good local shops like the Co-op and Lidl and family friendly cafes like Costa and Affogato. Stay up the Streatham end of Norbury if you want access to Outstanding primary schools like Woodmansterne and Granton. Streatham Vale is excellent value for access to Norbury and Streatham Common facilities. New Antic pub coming will offer more dining/bar/activities through the day and evenings too from next year. The Railway pub is great for families too. The main issue is fly-tipping but residents are getting hot on stamping it out. Shame the council don't do enough about it. Enjoy.
Here's why I think 2019 will be the year for Norbury to be put on the places-to-move-to-in-greater-London map... A new trendy late night Antic pub (from the owners of Streatham's Pratt's and Payne and Tooting Tram Shed) The Norbonne and Stable is coming to Norbury in the New Year 2019 and it looks like it will also house some other quality outlets, a restaurant and a central area for outdoor markets etc. This could really add to the night-life offering from Norbury. Also the state schools are improving, for example look at the last Ofsted for Norbury Manor primary: Good with Outstanding Early Years. The co-op is also going to expand soon on the high road next to the existing co-op site. There are loads of brand new modern flats in the old Police Station developed by London Square who updated the Streatham Mega-Bowl housing development, which will be shared ownership too. House prices in Norbury are still very good value considering it is only 23 minutes from Victoria direct by train.

I'm not a resident of London and have sort of found a place on Green Lane in Norbury. Would you say it is worth moving to? What do you think should be the rent for an en suite double room there? Could tell me about the area? I'm told Norbury isn't very safe and that I should consider moving elsewhere.

Norbury is a suburb of london and not a city, london is the city. Norbury is a delightful place with plenty of open space. The climate is almost subtropical and many of our oriental friends like to reside there because of the climate. It is an extremely safe place to live and there is hardly any crime. Best wishes

Sorry, I know you shouldn't post complaints, but if you can praise a tradesman, why not be able to do the opposite and save people grief. I hope you will accept this.
Avoid FEDERATION PROPERTY MAINTENANCE - a south London based individual who recently advertised in the Croydon Advertiser. He did some work for me and I wish he hadn't. Won't go into it on here, but believe me, avoid him.

Hi I have been offered a job based in Norbury and will be relocating from up North. I'm not familiar with the area and don't know whether to move to Norbury itself or move to somewhere a commutable distance from there. I am looking to live in a houseshare, am a sociable gal and would like to meet some likeminded people who like pubbing it, seeing live bands and generally having a laugh and giggle. I am also a bit of a free spirit, love travelling, nature, summer festivals and am into yoga, meditation, 5 rhythm - anything holistic really! Is kinda thing going on in Norbury or near abouts? Does Norbury sound like the kinda place for me, or do you recommend another area which I can commute from?
Cheers for your help oh and have a great Christmas!
Did you enjoy it?
I worked for some time in 1985-86 at what was then the Norbury Hotel, for a Scottish gaffer, and met some interesting characters. I had just left the police in Scotland, and one of the (then) locals called me the "Bagel". I remember many of my customers, but I wonder if any remember me and even if they're still in the area. Thinking of the Collis brothers George Gary and Graham, Johnnie Kitchenside, Alan Shorey and one or two other characters.
I would love a good ride too. I haven't had one in years.
That was nothink on the old rivalry between the Ladywell Lads and the Nunhead Nonces. We dun them in good. Them was the days. But you cant ave a good ruck these days without the old bill coming along and spoiling it.
Oi remember the dayes of de old rivalry between the Streatham and Norbury boyes. Friday night at the Locarno twould be fisticuffs with Gud old Tulse Hill Tone taking a few upper cuts to the chin. Them were they days.
My name is Helene and I am a happy resident of Norbury since 3 weeks.
I wanted to know ifthere is any possibility to horse ride, any ride school or something?
Otherwise, is there any dance course? Like bollywood or modern danse course? Or ice skating course?
Thank you for your answers!!
Hello I thinka the Norbury isa pretty place. Nice and not lots of da crime or nothink. The English they see the foreigners like a not bad really. They likesa the paella so you be ok. Kisses.
there is "the norbury" pub, and over the road "the moon under water" wetherspoons they are on the main high street
i think that it is a very overpriced area, and is only so expensive because it is near london, but its alright to live here, very ethnically diverse area, i would suggest you visit before you move here because its not to everyones tastes.
Hi everyone, I like to know what do you think about to live in Norbury? Is a good place for live? Is it safe? Is it pretty? How it is the climate? I would like to live hear for a time, but I like to know how is the city? Is it a city? I speak spanish and I hope that your undestand me.
If some to know where i can know more information I hope your answer.
And other thing, how they see the English to the foreigners?
Thak you very much
I live on London Rd just a block up from thre, and its not bad at all- the cars are much noisier- make sure you have dbl glazing in the flat!
Satyam Yoga Centre near Norbury Police Station has classes for beginners to experienced. Most of the people who go seem to be local so a good way to get fit and make new friends
Hi, I'm thinking of moving to Norbury and liked the feel of it when I came to suss out the area. I was just wondering whether the night club (I think it's the Norbury, next to the Ghanaian centre) is very noisy. The flat I am thinking of is close by so don't want to be kept awake every night.
i always use link cars.we have always found them very reliable. they are also the cheapest ive found
Hey i live in Norbury/Thornton Heath near the McDonalds on London Road. I think its a good place to live if you have a busy life you're always doing things as apposed to a quiet life. Its got a selection of schools which are easy to get to via car or public transport, lots of public transport nearby like train, bus and tram, lots of cab offices aswell. You've got croydon and streatham centres nearby, Croydons got quite a few bars and clubs, and resteraunts aswell. Loads of places to have hair or nails done. Plus you got quite a few nearby complexes for things like cinema, bowling etc. Anything a bit further away like Theme parks or beaches like Brighton or Margate are easy to get to by train aswell. Plus your about 30mins train ride from central london which is a good thing if your looking for a job or shopping etc. Norbury isnt exactly the richest of areas so dont expect it to look really clean or anything but its not too bad & crimes as bad as anywhere else in London.Gd Luck!
Shahi B has got to be the best Indian restaurant in London! Lovely veggie food, top notch service and it's so cheap too - the £5 eat-as-much-as-you-like Sunday buffet is excellent. We drive there from East Dulwich because we have no veggie restaurants, just poncey, stuck-up gastropub-type places where more thought goes into the decor than the food. If you live in Norbury make sure you try it out.
I'd like to get together with any other Women interested in Martial Arts or a combat style physical fitness. Mail me at
I have lived in London since 1995, Norbury is the first place I have lived that hits the right buttons. It is 'not quite Balham' which allows cheaper eating and drinking. There are many local greengrocers and those family run sell all shops which let you buy stuff for cleaning etc at half the supermarket price. There are fields, night buses, shops, health care facilities and a gym all within wallking distance of anywhere you may live. There seems to be little graffitti or vandalism, and the road side verges and tree are well maintained. Very few people who I work with have heard of Norbury which suggests to me that it is a fairly safe place to live and not one associated with crime or trouble.
What is the Norbury area like? I am looking to come live in London and I would like to know what the area is like (shops, crime, etc.). Any info much appreciated!
I am a Dog walker in norbury. Contact me via email
I am looking for someone to drop in on a Monday and comfort my new puppy. He is a 12 week old dachshund and needs a bit of comfort. All you have to do it sit and watch television (he's too small to be taken for a walk yet). All he wants to do is sleep on your lap and be cuddled. Ideally you could come for 1 hour or pop in twice in one day. Or if you love dogs but cant have one of your own and we got to know you, you could possibly take him with you on a Monday, perhaps to your own house and treat him as your own for one day! email me if you are interested on

I am a 22- year-old student living in Norbury and want to form my own band for a laugh and maybe for gigging later on. I used to be in a band for more than a year as a singer and have been trained as a singer and pianist for 12 years. My main influences are: QOTSA, SOAD, Green Day, Nirvana, Placebo, Muse, Guano Apes, Manic Street Preachers, Alanis Morissette, some of No Doubt.
If you are a bassist/drummer/quitarist and interested, e-mail me.
i' been there and its really nice
its been ther for a long time and the scary gp women left to go to fairview practice at the other end of norbury so dont worry
Cannons has everything including a pool
It is london service so it is quite full but your can get a seat in the morning, your lucky if you get on in the evening from clapham junction
of course there is a supper market, somerfields, if your walking up from the station its the first right turning after superdrug.
Its only a 109 ride from norbury to croydon and the khyber restaurant is delicious, traditional like the mirch and close to the pubs and clubs
Type in the name of your supermarket followed by branch locator
Eg sainsburys branch locator ( it should then ask for an area or postcode) just type that in and you will see the closest stores to the postcode u entered. Happy Shopping

Well I hope you get this message maybe you can email me back...?? I live in Norbury...First of all I like to say there's 2sides to Norbury eg. There's Hampstead and there's Hampstead Heath..hey just a Senario for you...??? Ok the first part of Norbury consists of Green Lane 250 bus route aka Streatham Common South/ coverton way, going up to the top of norbury hill then back down to streatham common south...posh sides as I like to call it??? the other side o f Norbury is also really nice but not as posh...That side is from the top of Green Lane where the 109 bus route, London Road to Pollard hill. The area is really quiet and friendly..safe...If you wanna go out and have fun you have to travel but their anre good food shops and take aways/ resturants nearby...other lesure activities require traveling....up london and beyound...streatham's quite good for entertainment/ internet cafe's/ food/ food stores/ clothing stores

iam looking for a football club in norbury, i used to be the captain of our team in nigeria but when i moved to england i lost touch with football due to a private matter but now am looking for a team that will help me get my stamina back. i have not played football in four years .
I am the manager of Norbury FC. We are looking for a couple pf players for the following season.
We have just won promotion to the first division Croydon Municipal Sunday League. Call me ********3.
Norbury is like being in a friendly multi cultural village but right inside London! People are really friendly I left my front door open with shopping in full view a neighbour shut it for me when she realised I wasn't in but best of all after several hours of the door being open nothing was stolen. I'm not saying there's no crime but I feel pretty safe and secure.
There's an Italian near the old Police station that got Egon Ronay approval! A greek restaurant nr Halifax building society and Happ Lee for Chinese but best is Mirch masala Indian -you just can't go wrong!!!
I use the Norbury Dental Centre on London Road. Going south it is just before the group of shops that contain the Tesco petrol station and express store. The number will be in the phone book. They do NHS and seem quite efficient.
You may ring all the major supermarkets head office customer services to get the addresses.
From my experience I did my final year project on online supermarkets, it wasnt that hard to get the information from head office customer services.
All the best in ur search.
Does anyone actually kno the addresses of supermarkets anywhere in london???? If so.. what are they.. plz tell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
as there is nowhere to drink in Norbury. The Merch Marsala is the one of the best Indian restaurants in London even though it doesn't look it. The fish tikka is excellent. Hap Lee for a good Chinese.
The two busiest pubs are The Moon Under Water and The Norbury (which has a late license at weekends).
The place to eat out especially on a Thursday night is The Paradise Inn. If you like soul music which touches the heart come and listen to Tony James in caberet.

Came out of The Norbury Hotel Pub/Club the other night and almost next door was a late night bar called "Ghana..." or something like that. Think it used to be "The Shrine". Just wondered if anyone has been there or knows anything about it.
