Find all of the best things to do, see, buy, eat and drink in Catford
Catford, like its siblings in Lewisham, Deptford and Brockley, is developing into one of London’s buzziest places to be. That’s, in part, because of it’s proximity to Central London (London Bridge is just 11 minutes by train, while Charing Cross is just 19 minutes), but the area has also been invaded by trendy cafés, bars and a monthly food market, which is separate from the daily Catford market.
There’s also Lewisham Council’s regeneration plans for Catford town centre, as well as the facelift given to Catford Broadway — now all spruced up and looking lively with independent cafés and a great little street market. And then, if you need any more reasons to visit, there’s the massive fibreglass cat, a picture of which is destined to find a home on your Instagram.
