Our unit in the Whitgift Centre is 4 minutes walk (0.2 miles) from Wellesley Road Tram stop via the underpass, and 7 minutes walk (0.3 miles) from West Croydon Station and 8 minutes walk (0.4 miles) from East Croydon station.

We’re happy to meet you at any of these locations upon request, or at the two car parks mentioned below to assist you with finding Turf. We’re also happy to meet / phone visitors to talk through the details of any upcoming exhibition or event so you have a clear idea of the format and our facilities.

Below are details for the two closest car parks and cheapest rates for parking all day:

  • Britannia Car Park ‘Whitgift Centre Car Park’ is the car park which backs on to the Turf unit upper floor, but has no lift and precarious ramp access! Disabled bays available. Card payment only.
    Note that the ‘All day’ ticket is misleading and only goes until 7pm! Take care not to leave later than it says on your ticket, as people have been fined!

    The ticket machine is against the wall across the other side of the car park, directly opposite our fire exit.

  • NCP Whitgift Centre, Wellesley Road, Croydon, CR0 1UP. 34 disabled bays available, lifts, 24hr contact centre, cash and card accepted. For full details click here.

For our other unit, ‘Little Turf’;

  • Centrale Shopping Centre’s car park, which accepts cash and card payments. For full details click here.

It may be possible to book an interpreter with advance notice request (please make your request at least two weeks in advance of when you will need an interpreter to allow us to book if possible). If we cannot book an interpreter we will discuss alternative support we can offer. Contact us to make your request.

This space is being built and is currently a work in progress. We will update the page when it is ready to access. The quiet space will be offered to visitors away from any exhibition or public event noises, a private area for breastfeeding, prayer or quiet reflection.
