Brockwell Park is a 50.8 hectare (125.53 acres) park located between Brixton, Herne Hill and Tulse Hill, bordered by Brixton Water Lane, Norwood Road, Tulse Hill (Road), and Dulwich Road in South London.
The park commands views of the skyline of the city and Central London. At the top of the hill within the park stands Brockwell Hall.
The Brockwell Lido, a Grade II listed art deco building near the top of the park, is an open-air swimming pool popular with swimmers and bathers. Its attached café/restaurant is also popular. Other amenities in Brockwell Park include tennis courts, a bowling green, a BMX track and a miniature railway.
The park is home to the Lambeth Country Show, which usually takes place in July. An annual fireworks display also takes place around November 5. There are two festivals held in Brockwell Park in the summer. Found Festival and sunfall festival.
Brockwell Park is open from 7.30am to 15 minutes before sunset every day.
The Grade II* listed Brockwell Hall was built between 1811-1813 when the area was part of Surrey and was the country seat of glass merchant John Blades Esq. The land and house were acquired by the London County Council (LCC) in March 1891 and opened to the public on 2 June in the following summer, led by the local MP Thomas Lynn Bristowe. At the unveiling, Bristowe died of a heart attack on the steps of the hall.

  • Brockwell Park may be outside the normal tourist paths, but for those who want to immerse in the newspaper of a lesser-known London community and is perfect. Here is a project of community gardens, a café in an old building in the Centre of the Park, lakes and a view over the South of the city (if the sky is clear you can see the white chimneys near Battersea Power Station, that of Pink Floyd's Animals). The Walled Garden at its core is a very unique place, quiet and harmonious, relaxing escape in reading and thinking or just walk for a while surrounded by a strange fairy tale rather than in the metropolis. Well cared for and loved by residents.

  • Brockwell park is a great place to visit with the whole family, there is slways something going on in it from the County fairs to a host of other activities. The park is well maintained and kept clean and great for the walkers among us who want to have a physical challenge. Worth a visit!
  • Great open park with a good amount of hills for running. Fantastic park to take your dog for a run. Beautiful views from the top
