The venue contains the Museum of Croydon, Clocktower Café and the Croydon Central Library. Other facilities which can be accessed from Croydon Clocktower include the David Lean Cinema, which offers a regular programme of art house and independent films, and the Braithwaite Hall, which is used for concerts, theatre and children's shows.
