HOME OF NESTLE UK

to get to other places.
when does anyone go through brighton to get to anywhere? Unless you were going from Hastings to Portsmouth...
Also, NEVER compare Brighton and Croydon again.
that you go through Croydon to get to Brighton. No?
*rolls sleeves back down*
I just get protective of Brighton.
Also this brought out my latent hatred of Croydon quite well.
when you fall asleep on the night bus.
DAMN YOU N159
he claimed that croyden had "baht a mihwyun people" and was "city innit's ahn right"
seeing as i don't know much about London, especially anywhere out of Zone 2, and north of the Thames. contemplating a job offer out there
the Croydon wiki is a good read, 'Roundabouts of Croydon' sounds like a great calendar!
You'll just have to learn to live with it.
you've been following me around all day correcting me. PEDANT! PEDANT! GO AND PEDANTICISE SOMEONE ELSE! PEDANT!
You've been following me around all day being WRONG
actually a word?
its ok I suppose, but has some proper shitty areas. I assume you are thinking of moving there or something. All I can say is do a lot of research into the local area of your house before you do.
As far as the town is concerned, its quite good for shopping, and has lots of cool pubs, and a classic shite rock club called The Cartoon - spent most of my pre-18 drinking days there listening to pop punk cover bands.
I'm from Croydon, though I do most of my studying up in Lincoln now. It's strange, I always thought I'd be glad to see the back of that place - but now I miss it. It's ok I guess, not as bad as it's reputation would suggest.
There are a few half-decent pubs, and the shopping is pretty much what you'd expect from any normal high street, good transport links to both London and Brighton too.
Perhaps it's the sort of place you just have to get used to?
and I never actually got to play there... haha
just too far away from anything for me, think ill have to give it a miss
Esp on a fri/sat night in the town centre outside LLoyds, Tiger Tiger, Weatherspoons, Reflex - 'Tang central!
but working in london and living in croydon means i can get 24 hour trains to 1 mins walk from where i live. But yeh...saving up to move the fuck away now...
