Crystal Palace is named after the majestic cast-iron and glass structure that was built to house the Great Exhibition of 1851. After the exhibition, the structure was moved from Hyde Park to Sydenham Hill where it stood until a fire in 1936.
The mansions that were built around the park after the structure's relocation have since been converted into elegant flats. You'll also find roads of stately terraces, as well as town houses and new-build apartments.
Crystal Palace is on top of a hill, so residents enjoy fine views as well as thriving independent shops, restaurants and cafes. The schools are well thought of too, including Paxton and Rockmount primaries. Transport links are excellent here, with Overground trains to Canary Wharf, London Bridge and Victoria plus an array of bus services, including one to Oxford Circus.
