Morden Hall Park's wetland boardwalk in summer

Summer at Morden Hall Park 

Come for the peace, wildlife, sights and smells, wide open spaces and the history. Morden Hall Park is free to enter and open all the time, and there’s so much here for you to discover. Bring a picnic and outdoor games or book a ticket for some outdoor theatre and make the most of those long summer days.

Big camp at night with a family camp fire.

The Big Campfire at Morden Hall Park 

Stay out late for the best bits about camping without the camping. On Saturday 22 July between 6pm and 10pm, we’ll toast marshmallows, go on a bat walk, play campfire games and try stargazing.
