  • Visitor Information

Streatham Common is a large open space at the southern tip of Lambeth with great views across South London and to the North Downs of Surrey. Within the park are areas of woodland, grassland, wild flower meadows as well as The Rookery, a small landscaped garden. Facilities include a picnic area, cafe, children's playground and two paddling pools. The common is also used for fairs and events like the annual Streatham Festival in summer. This green area has a history stretching back as far as the Norman Conquest and Domesday Book. In 1883 it was taken over by the Metropolitan Board of Works and an Act of Parliament ensured its protection as a metropolitan common for public use and enjoyment.
