A park at the heart of the community
Morden Hall Park is 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 learning centre.
A much-loved rural idyll, the park lies in a built-up area, and some of the surviving estate buildings are used as workshops by local craftspeople and artisans. The renovated Stable Yard is the heart of the park with a café, second-hand bookshop and a living green centre with exhibitions.
A place to discover
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, 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.
Christmas in the park
Christmas is just around the corner and there are lots of exciting events happening in the park during the weekends before Christmas. Discover the perfect Christmas gift in our shop, enjoy some seasonal food in our café or spend a little longer with us to see the Christmas trees decorated by the local community in the Stable Yard.

Free for all
Morden Hall Park is open 365 days a year and has no entrance fee. Gilliat Edward Hatfeild donated his estate to us stating that 'a fee shall not be charged so that my Morden estate shall be open to the public.' We're now a much loved destination for local people, aiming to be a park at the heart of the community
Our programme of guided tours for local people will start again in Spring. If you would like to see the turbine please speak to one of the volunteers in the Stable Yard exhibition space who will be glad to take you on a mini tour. If you are looking for a group tour please contact us.
