Morden Hall Park is a National Trust park on the banks of the Wandle in Morden, south London. Its several buildings and associated parking included, it is 51 acres (21 ha) of predominantly parkland. Hinting at the former mill leats the river here splits into channels, generally, through it spanned by numerous footbridges. The estate contains Morden Hall itself, Morden Cottage, two well-preserved snuff watermills, a restored stableyard, a dog-friendly café, exhibition space and second-hand bookshop. A western part, separately accessed, hosts the National Trust's only Garden Centre.
The estate land was originally owned by Westminster Abbey. There is evidence of an earlier manor-house originally built by the Garth family where Morden Lodge now stands. The Hall dates back to the 1770s and contains a variety of natural landscapes, including the parkland of the "Deer Park", meadow and wetland. A number of historic buildings are located in the park, including the Hall itself and preserved watermills where tobacco was once ground into snuff.

Really tranquil and a pleasure to be in. A lovely garden centre with an aquatic and tea rooms ajoin the park. All year round there are advents taking place. Bike riding around the park is one of my favorite things to do. Loads of places to chill without anyone nearby. So lucky to have this on my doorstep.

Large carpark at the front. Love the garden centre. Wife bought mint and rosemary plants - their plants are generally of good quality. Although owned by the National Trust, it does not charge an entry fee to enter the grounds and garden. Some structures within the park tell a great story - the Snuff Mill, for instance, which gives you an idea of how the park came about. Complete your visit with a meal at the National Trust café

Great garden centre, good coffee shop with a decent range of treats. The Christmas section is always good and normally has stuff that you don't see in every other garden centre. The aquatics section is very good however being a saltwater fish keeper it's range for that is not great, I kind of expect that though as it's a bit more specialist so this should not be taken as a negative. The car park fills up quick so would advise getting there when it opens, there are some loevly grounds behind it so you can walk off the calories you have just consumed in the coffee shop.

A very natural park with a wooden playground with a zip wire and lots of wooden structures to play on. Nice pathways to wander along and a beautiful small river that fascinates children along with the many ducks. Well worth a family visit for an hour or two.

Lovely park with Rose garden, river, reed beds, ancient trees and a few historic buildings. National Trust car park free (up to 1.5 hours), café sells hot & cold food and the extensive garden centre has a wonderful aquarium centre.

Place to unwind. Peaceful walks and trails. New decking area ideally suited to families. Educational signs about life in the ponds and wetland habitants. Walking distance from Morden tube Station. Good for cycling, part grass and part gravel. Go in the daylight as there are few street lights lining the routes.

I've always loved going to this park. There's so much space so it's perfect for families and dogs. The rivers aren't too deep so often you'll find dogs fetching, kids swimming, and adults dipping their feet in. It's right beside a garden centre (which as a café) but within the park itself is a little square where you'll find a small shop that sells ice-cream, which is right beside a secondhand bookshop (which has quite a few classics!) and a space used as an art gallery. There are quite a few benches to sit at, but it's just as fine to sit on the grass in the rose garden, just over the bridge. The mill is often open for you to peruse. The rose garden is beautiful, and Wimbledon have provided a cute log structure. Not invasive, it suits it's surroundings. When I visited yesterday, lots of families were having picnics. Blankets everywhere; one family even had a table and umbrella setup! There's a lot to explore and if you walk long enough, you'll reach Deen City Farm and Abbey Mills.
