Croydon Airport, also known as London Terminal Aerodrome or London Airport (ICAO: EGCR) was the UK's major international airport during the interwar period, located in South London, England. At the launch of the first international air services after the First World War, it was developed as Britain's main airport. After the Second World War, it was replaced by Northolt Aerodrome, London Heathrow Airport and Gatwick Airport. In 1978, the terminal building and Gate Lodge were granted protection as Grade II listed buildings. In May 2017, Historic England raised the status of the terminal building to Grade II*. Owing to disrepair, the Gate Lodge is now classified as Heritage at Risk by Historic England.
