The ward of Addiscombe (red) shown within the Croydon Central constituency (orange) within the London Borough of Croydon (yellow)

Addiscombe is a ward in the London Borough of Croydon, covering much of the Addiscombe and East Croydon areas of London in the United Kingdom. It extends from East Croydon railway station towards Woodside Green but does not actually cover the retail centre of Addiscombe, which is the neighbouring Ashburton ward.

The ward currently forms part of the Croydon Central constituency, which is one of the most marginal in the country, as 165 votes separated the Conservatives and Labour at the 2015 General Election. The population of the ward at the 2011 Census was 16,883.[1]

The ward returns three councillors every four years to Croydon Council. A surprising result happened in the London local elections 2006 when the Green Party candidate got more votes than the Liberal Democrat.
