    You can come before they officially open to browse the selections and beat the crowds. Make sure to bring a tape measure and don't miss a chance to dine on some of the famous Ikea meatballs! 😄🇬🇧🏢

    Huge variety of furniture and housewares from very cheap to pricey, good quality. Go, buy there and depending on where you live, take a taxi to go home and have your stuff delivered at the same time!

    Plan to be here all day! Great pieces for the home and some great prices. If you don't want the kids annoying you while you shop...there's a play area at the entrance for 3-10yr olds.

    Love it here! Superb for inspiration, storage ideas & even stationery supplies. If you want to skip the mock up rooms though go direct to market hall as u exit the restaurant. :)

    If you are heading straight to the self serve section and want to skip the marketplace, there is a secret passage from the kitchen section to the lighting section. Not so secret any more.

    You can just pick up a mug or glass from a discarded tray and use that for refills if you are feeling really, really tight. If not it's only 70p for unlimited cold drinks and 80p for hot ones.

    Chastise greatly those who walk against the direction of the arrows. They will appreciate being shown the errors of their ways!

  • Lucy M.
    Make sure you grab a hot dog and refillable drink at the end after the tills. Such good value! 60p for a small (which is actually quite large)

    Croydon B power station was demolished in 1991 and an IKEA store was opened on the site. Two large chimneys were retained and remain a local landmark.
    James PW · January 7, 2015
  • Gerri G.
    Get a hotdog on the way out and a drink that you can keep refilling. The lingonberry juice is delish. The frozen cinnamon rolls are ace

    99p for kids fish and chips, £3.75 for an adult portion. I say two kids portions and you get more than an adult portion. Do the math

    A place where u can find affordable contemporary design. There's no place like IKEA....

  • Mikey
    It is virtually impossible to enter this place and get out in under 30mins. 1min to find the item, 29mins trying to find the exit.

    If you have the option... Goto Ikea in Tottenham! The staff there are much friendlier and the food is loads cheaper too!!!

    The 'Restaurant' does a harsh but cheeky Cotes De Provence for £2.70! You can also buy this product in the Market Place! It's called Paint Stripper!

    It's just not a furniture store - grab a bite to eat in the restaurant, its good value for money and the cakes are awesome.

    The pasta with tomato sauce was a let down. Though this store is still the best branch in the London vicinity.

    Don't forget to get a Customer Returns ticket and wait for 30 mins, even if all you need is a single spare screw.
