The Commons provide the perfect backdrop for walks, from a Sunday afternoon stroll to a mid-week meander. With different scenic views to soak up, the Commons sees visitors from miles around enjoying walking around this beautiful part of London.
The whole of the the Commons are there to ramble on, but do please take care when around the Golf Course and the horse rides.
As well as the many paths available for walking, you can take part in organised, guided walks led by our staff and local experts who can give you the inside info on birds, plants as well as the Commons themselves - keep an eye on the Events page for details, or sign up to our Mailing List!
Walking for Health
Working in partnership with Merton Council and their Walk4Life programme, two members of our staff have been trained as walk leaders and recently began leading a series of short, easy walks on the Commons that have been specifically designed for people who would like to improve their health and well-being by becoming more active.
Walk4Life is affiliated to Walking for Health which is supported by Macmillan Cancer Support and the Rambler’s Association. Activities like health walks are especially beneficial for those with long term health conditions and can help manage weight loss, improve circulation and breathing, combat depression, bolster the immune system, reduce diabetes and increase mobility.
