Merton Abbey Mills is the perfect day out for all the family. A historic arts village on London’s River Wandle, just a short walk from the tube station (Colliers Wood, northern line), it is a beautiful spot with an array of award-winning, little, world-food restaurants, a riverside pub, pottery for the children and theatre shows all weekend for little ones at affordable prices. It is a regular spot for live music and festivals, next to free urban children’s farm, Deen City Farm and just a short walk from free National Trust site, Morden Hall Park.

Reaped in history with a socialist legacy from great men such as Stephen Langton (Archbishop of Canterbury 1207-1228 who helped to develop a peaceful settlement which was used in the original issue of the Magna Carta), William Morris (great socialist and artist), Gilliat Edward Hatfield (a philanthropist and socialist) to name just a few; Merton Abbey Mills is one of London's hidden gems and part of what makes our capital city so special.

  • Abbey Mills doesn't get the attention it deserves. It is an amazing space, right beside the Wandle River with a choice few places to eat and drink. With the right investment, it would be the 'happening place' of SW London, however it's also really nice to go somewhere that isn't overcrowded!
  • Ate at the Italian one night and our calzone was burnt...but otherwise quite good and reasonably priced. Had a really good meal at the Agentinian steakhouse - but we couldn't fathom the menu! Far too complicated! Our waitress was wonderful and helped us choose a great meal. Reasonably priced too!
