History The Hallmark Hotel London Croydon Aerodrome was opened in 1928 to accommodate passengers using Croydon Airport - which at the time was London's biggest airport, and in fact one of the world's most important international air transport hubs. It is the site where Amy Johnson embarked upon her record-breaking flight to Australia, Charles Lindbergh arrived after his journey from New York to Paris to be greeted by 100,000 fans and Winston Churchill trained as a pilot. The impressive history and significance of the hotel has always been recognised, and it has been popular for wedding celebrations since its inception. Facilities Hallmark Hotel Croydon presents three wedding areas, each of which is licensed for the conduct of civil marriage ceremonies.
