Explore the outdoors and get involved in fun, family-friendly activities at Morden Hall Park. Whether you’re ticking some activities off your list of ’50 things to do before you’re 11¾’, there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained.
Morden Hall Park is a green oasis in the city, giving you a taste of a country estate with a glimpse of its agricultural and industrial history.
This tranquil former deer park is one of the few remaining estates that used to line the River Wandle during its industrial heyday. The river meanders through the park creating a haven for wildlife.
The snuff mills, which generated the park’s income in the past, survive to this day. We’ve renovated the western mill, and it’s now used as a Children and Young People hub.
The renovated Stable Yard is the heart of the park with a second-hand bookshop, café and facilities while surviving estate buildings are used as workshops by local artists. The park is also home of the National Trust’s only garden centre.
When you step through the gates, you’d be forgiven for imagining yourself to be in the middle of the English countryside. Surrounded by meadows, an Edwardian rose garden, trees and the gentle sounds of birdsong and running water, the park offers a rare sense of discovery and a chance to get away from it all.
Entry to the park is free for all. Events also run throughout the year (additional charges may apply).
