One of the great things about Norbury is that so many people disagree on where the area covers.
There is a sense of fluidity between Norbury and the surrounding areas, including Mitcham, Thornton Heath and Streatham Common. This may hamper the sense of community spirit in the area but it means you can access so many great parts of South London with ease, which is probably far better in the long run.
In fact, while Norbury is officially part of the London Borough of Croydon, it appears that the area actually straddles three different boroughs. Parts of Norbury can be found in Merton and Lambeth, so if you are looking for an area with a touch of variety, Norbury has a lot to offer in its compact yet delightful shape!
