Enter your own private guided tour of the Whitgift Almshouses
The Whitgift Almshouses is one of the most iconic and recognisable buildings in Croydon. Sited in the town centre, with its typical Tudor architecture it is hard to miss.
When it was founded in 1596 the Almshouses accommodated up to 40 people. Today, 15 residents call it home. This gated community rarely opens its doors to the public, however, the new virtual tour allows you to peek behind the large wooden doors and glimpse in to Croydon’s fascinating Tudor past.
