Crystal Palace has made a name for itself as a go-to hub for vintage shopping, whether you’re after rare furniture, clothing or a snazzy print for your wall. If you haven’t visited yet, venture down south with this short guide (and bring lots of money for goodies).

Church Road, which makes up one third of the Crystal Palace triangle, is the heart of vintage shopping in the area with plenty of shops populating this busy street. Bambinos was the first to appear 27 years ago, and it's still going strong today. It's also home to the popular café Boyce Da Roca.

Further round the triangle, off Westow Street, you’ll find Haynes Lane Market, a two-floor treasure trove and hoarders' paradise. Well worth a browse – you could find anything from books and vinyls to trinkets and train sets.

With furniture up front and clothing further back, you could occupy yourself for a while browsing through the stock at Crystal Palace Vintage. Vintage pieces are reasonably priced, too.

Crystal Palace Antiques is home to four floors of vintage delights for the home, with a previous find including a black Eames DSW chair for £28. Designs of Modernity occupies part of the basement of this Jasper Road treasure, with around ten other dealers occupying the rest of the space.

Head to the White Hart pub on the corner of Westow Hill and Church Road and you'll see Vintage Hart – a small room which stocks vintage womenswear and homeware. With beers on tap just metres away, you won’t have to go far for a post-shopping bevvy.

Finally, the lovely Do South - which specialises in mid-century furniture, glassware and artwork - has recently had a revamp and is worth a visit.
