Morden Area Guide
Little of the earlier rural character of Morden survived the suburban expansion, although the area has excellent provision of parks and playing fields, many of them created from remnants of the former country estates. It is, for the most part, a suburb. Despite London's suburban expansion, a little of the earlier rural nature of Morden has survived; for instance several grand period buildings remain, especially within Morden's parks. The 125 acre Morden Hall Park is of particular note and is run by the National Trust. Its main entrance is a quarter-of-a-mile from Morden Underground station.
The town is home to Merton Council's Civic Centre and a large adjoining library. Morden is also in close proximity to the London Borough of Kingston upon Thames too, meaning that idyllic stretches of the Thames and excellent cultural hotspots are only a stone’s throw away. It is the ideal location for young families and couples to escape the hustle and bustle of central London.
