About this venue

'An ancient, Arcadian country estate' With a 125 acre estate of fine trees and open skies, Morden Hall Park is a tranquil hideaway enveloped by London. Follow the River Wandle as it meanders serenely through the park and under the ornate bridges. The atmospheric wetlands provide a natural haven for an abundance of wildlife including kingfishers, herons and dragonflies. For our young explorers we have a natural play area where you can fly through the air on the zip wire before building your very own secret den in the woods. Events run throughout the year, from family trails to summer theatre and open air cinema nestled amongst the roses.
