  • Though it was hard to get a car park, the frustration was paid off by the abundance of deers that freely running around the park. It's so relaxing to watch them. A must visit location. 
  • grate for fitness, walks, walking around, dogs walks, bikeing, familys ect adn they also have gardens and other things going on at diffrent times of the year check it out when you can 
  • What a surprise to discover this place in South London! A very nice place to relax at the edge of the water and see animals. I recommend to all who want not only to see red buses in London

  • You like to be inspired? Go here to see the mix of cyclist and health freak people. Add to that the scenery and fresh air. Nice coffee shops and selection of sandwiches and cakes...
  • Amazing! So beautiful. It is easy to spot the deer. The park is massive so I'd recommend getting bicycle or driving to find the deer. You're not allowed to stop the car on the roads inside the park. So you'd. Have to go to the parking, and then walk back to where you spotted the animals.
  • It's such a massive park, you could wonder through it for hours, and come back time and time again and keep discovering new things. There are dozens of deer running around the park freely, so you'll have a chance to observe and take photos. I haven't tried riding a bike here but there seem to be good trails for it.
  • Beautiful any time of year. Stop at a coffee shop & take a lovely stroll.. Every member of the family will love it hear. Ideal for a nice picnic on a warm day. Hopefully you also get to see the Deer too.
  • Such a lovely park. Been a few times now and even in the pouring rain it's still so nice. Can walk for miles. It's a lovely summer evening out. Such a wide range of different wildlife and if you're into running you can jog around the park as I've seen a lot of people do. If you do decide to go, enjoy it! It's beautiful
