Lying within south London, Mitcham is part of the borough of Merton and lies right on the border between inner and Greater London. With its roots firmly in agriculture, Mitcham has a large number of open green areas, making this part of London seem particularly leafy and almost rural.
Over the years, Mitcham was developed from its farming roots and by 1685, was gifted with a cricket ground. This still stands today and is the oldest still in current use in the country. It remains the home of Mitcham Cricket Club as well as being used by the Second XI of the Surrey CCC, so if you time it right you could pop in to watch a game.
If you want to see more of the great outdoors, Figges Marsh and Lavender Park are two popular green spaces. The south west of Mitcham is also edged by the River Wandle which curves around the perimeter of the town, providing beautiful walks and picturesque scenery. Both Poulter and Ravensbury Park stretch out to the river, providing a real escape from urban life.
For a glimpse at what the olden days were like, take a visit to the old Surrey Iron Railway route, part of hidden Mitcham. It’s a horse drawn plateway where Mitcham linked up Wandsworth and Croydon and it’s a real blast from the past.
If you’re looking for activities during the day, the nearby Abbey Mills weekend market offers bargains as well as live music, while the National Trust property Morden Hall Park adds a touch of culture.
Mitcham has its fair share of bars and restaurants, with a combination of locally sourced food and Pan-Asian menus. However, if you want to dance the night away, Clapham Junction is only a short trip away and provides a livelier nightlife.
