    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.

    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.

    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
