Jump on trampolines at Oxygen Freejumping

Does jumping on hundreds of trampolines, hurling towards a large airbag, and playing dodge ball in the air (dubbed ‘aeroball’) sound like a good time? Oxygen Freejumping is the place for you. A popular hotspot among active types and families with hyper-energetic kids, they also offer professional trampoline coaching conducted on Olympic-standard performance trampolines, quick reaction games, and a playpen for kids below 5 years of age.

Attend an art event at Matthews Yard

A cultural and community hub situated in central Croydon, Matthew’s Yard attracts artsy and alternative types from across London. Visit their fascinating art gallery, attend one of their live music events, or partake in their crowdfunded vegan grill with a side of community theatre. You’ll find murals by incredible artists like Lis Watkins and AlecLDN – a resident artist at the popular The Ends Festival which also takes place in Croydon. You can also buy the works on display if you wish.

Eating out in Croydon

While you’re at Matthew’s Yard, make sure to try some of their heavenly vegan dishes. The fastest-moving items on the menu are their crispy French toast with vanilla ice cream, classic avocado on toast, and their wildly popular Yard Burger – a juicy marriage between a Moving Mountains plant-based patty, tomato, pickles, lettuce and vegan American cheese. Next, head to Boxpark Croydon for a culinary cornucopia. With over 80 shipping containers full of street food stalls and artisan cafés, you’ll be spoilt for choice. From jerk chicken to Korean spicy fried chicken to decadent Aussie lamingtons, the hardest part will be choosing what you want to eat from all the delicious options.
