As one of Greater London’s most important boroughs, Croydon was historically part of the county of Surrey. With several large stores in the centre, Croydon’s toy shops are principally focussed in or around the Whitgift or Centrale shopping centres. Small model shop chain known as Modelzone are situated here, and is a popular destination for radio controlled model enthusiasts.
The Forbidden Planet have a branch in Croydon, and the independent Croydon toy shops of Gordon’s Toys and Stationery plus Nick Waters Soft Toys help to give Croydon’s shoppers a great choice of different types of retailing. Heroes & Legends Games in St. Georges Walk is a brilliant store for war gamers, and their choice of products and brands is second to none.
