English Croydon Clocktower

Croydon Clocktower is an arts and museum complex located on Katharine Street in Croydon, London.

The venue contains the Museum of Croydon, the David Lean Cinema, which offers a regular programme of art house and independent films, a Youth Ambassadors group, aimed at bringing more young people to the Clocktower, and a café and bar. The venue also contains the Braithwaite Hall, which was used for concerts, theatre and children's shows, until 2011 when its funding was cut by the Council, and it lost its Arts Council RFO status.

The centre is owned and run by Croydon Council, and also houses Croydon's Central Library. The building links into the Town Hall and some areas of the building, most notably the Braithwaite Hall, are part of the original town hall and library complex, built in 1892–1896 to a design by Charles Henman.The Clocktower is the tower of the Town Hall. New buildings were built alongside the Town Hall and were opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1994. A notable early success was the Picasso exhibition in March to May 1995 named Picasso's Croydon Period.
