Addington Hills is located right next to the Coombe Lane tram stop , so is very easy to find. Walk  straight through a small section of wood until you come to a clearing with a restaurant on your right, The Chinese restaurant. To find the viewpoint take an immediate left turn, it is signposted,  walk straight down the path you will come to a raised viewing platform.

In the foreground you can see across Croydon but to the right and further afield you can see a large part of South London with the Cities Canary Wharf , the Dome and the Shard in view. Indeed on a clear day you can see as far as the telecom Tower in the North and the famous arch of Wembley stadium in the west.

It is well worth a look and  may even raise a chuckle as you  hear partners discussing whether it is the Dome or the London Eye they can see. Having read this blog you know the answer !
