What's on

We've got lots planned for 2015, from the country show and open air theatre, to a beer festival, pop up cinema and family activities throughout the holidays. 

Our Cadbury Easter trails are just around the corner...


There's so much to do in Morden Hall Park.  In the words of one of our founders, Octavia Hill, 'We all need places to sit in, places to play in, places to stroll in, and places to spend a day in.'

Don't miss

  • Seeing the sun come up over the bare winter trees
  • Views of the park from the white bridge across the River Wandle
  • The natural play area near the white bridge
  • The unusual rose garden beside Morden Cottage
  • Monthly exhibitions in our stable yard
  • The sound of the rushing water under the restored waterwheel
  • Playing 'eels out' round the story boat

Run wild at Morden Hall Park

Whatever the weather this spring time, get outdoors and enjoy some wild time. You can tick off lots of the 50 things adventures, from climbing a tree and hunting for bugs to playing pooh sticks on our white bridge. Why not book onto one of our Ranger Club activities, where you'll build dens and learn how to make a campfire.

So many great places to play outdoors

Take the zip wire challenge, balance on a log or build a den in our natural play area. If you’ve got great imagination, discover our storyboat or pretend it’s a pirate ship or cruise liner on a round the world trip. For the little ones, there’s lots of hands-on play with activity boards outside the café.
