  • Good, popular open air space. New children's playground under development. Various events during year. At top there is Rookery and a good café. At bottom 2 pubs on highroad and others in walking distance.
  • Large open space. Children's play area and paddling pool at foot of common. Rises to nice flower garden at top with cafe. Gardens at top perfect for wedding photos, tables and chairs provided for picnicking. Regular cultural and entertainment events take place on the common. Popular throughout the year.
  • Great place to have an adventure with the kids. Explore the woods, visit the Rookery gardens or cool down with a good splash in the giant paddling pool. After a good walk you can enjoy tasty food, ice cream or even an excellent coffee at the parks cafe next to the entrance of the Rookery. Dog friendly, kid friendly, free car parking. Various events are held on the common. Don't miss Streatham's annual "Kite Festival. A great day out.
  • This park is OK during the day and when the weather is good. Apart from that I'm not emotional about this park. Would travel to see a beautiful park or garden.
  • Close to shops. Good area for all ages to walk or workout. Safe play area for little ones. Cafe toilets on site.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
