What is there to do? Are there places to eat? Can I bring the dog? Let us help you plan your day at Morden Hall Park with this quick guide to things to see and do.

Background

An ancient landscape, and now an oasis of green within urban south London, Morden Hall park was saved for the community by the far-sighted philanthropist, Gilliat Hatfield. Open for free to everyone year-round, the park reflects the desire of the National Trust’s founder, Octavia Hill, to provide ‘open-air sitting rooms for city dwellers’.

Opening Times

Park: 8am-5pm daily (closed 25th and 26th December)
Potting Shed Café: 8am-5pm daily (from 1st Nov)
Stableyard Café (dog friendly): 11am-4pm daily
Garden Centre Monday-Saturday: 9am-6pm Sunday: 10am-4pm

Things to see

This is a great place to connect with nature and boost your wellbeing. Here you can walk along tree-lined avenues, stroll along tranquil riverside paths, discover a thriving wetland and relax in an historic rose garden. It's so easy to get to, just minutes from tube and tram stops.

School visits

We offer a range of learning activities for organized groups, from formal led school sessions to twilight sessions for uniformed youth groups. The park and its story are brought to life outside in the grounds and using the facilities inside our atmospheric Snuff Mill building.

Dog walking

Enjoy our 125 acres with your four-legged friend and remember we ask that you keep your dog on a lead when you’re around the Snuff Mill, Garden Centre and cafes, and in the Rose Garden, play area and wetland boardwalk.
