Walk on Streatham Common

A welcome green space in South London, Streatham Common has a history dating back to the Domesday Book, and 66 acres of common land were formally protected by an Act of Parliament in the 19th Century. Today, it is a lovely spot for a wander, and offers spectacular views over South London.

The Common offers locals and visitors access to a great range of amenities including an area of woodland, where your author kicked through the last of the wintry leaves. Other treasures include a cafe, tennis court, some lovely benches with great views in various directions, the historic Rookery, of which readers can expect to hear more at a later date, and a playground and paddling pool for the children.
