The Grade II* listed Brockwell Hall was built between 1811-1813 when the area was part of Surrey and was the country seat of glass merchant John Blades Esq. The land and house were acquired by the London County Council (LCC) in March 1891 and opened to the public on 2 June in the following summer, led by the local MP Thomas Lynn Bristowe. At the unveiling, Bristowe died of a heart attack on the steps of the hall.
Brockwell Park Walled Garden Reviews
It's quintessentially English with vegetable plots, wild flowers and even a herb garden in its midst. A portly, retired Jamaican, wearing a huge colourful beany attends to the thirsty plants almost... more »
The walled garden is tucked away in Brockwell Park and is a stunning garden full of shrubs and flowers. Well worth a visit if you are nearby! more »
Great for a run, walk, or cycle. The cafe is a lovely stop, however my favourite place is the walled gardens: a brilliant arrangement of plants and flowers make for a very nice smelling place to visit when you are there. The kids playground is excellent as well, a good few hours can be spent here without getting bored.
What's not to love? Huge open space which still has room for a paddling pool, lido, duck ponds, cafe, basketball and tennis courts, cricket pitch, children's playground, one o'clock club and bike track. Even on the hottest day you'll find a quiet space.
