Visit Brockwell Park

Address: Brockwell Park, Herne Hill, London. SE24 9BJ

Visit the lovingly restored Bust of Thomas Lynn Bristowe MP – the man that put Brockwell Park into public ownership and to whom park users owe their deepest gratitude. The Bust was returned to Brockwell Park in Summer 2012 after a six decade absence by a partnership of local community groups. It is situated in the entrance of Brockwell Hall, where you can also grab a cup of tea and a slice of cake!


North – South orientation map – below. This shows the Park, its entrance/exit points and specific heritage features, play and sports facilities.

    Glad to see Brockwell Park is still going strong. We kids (myself, sister, and neighbouring children) spent many weekends and school holidays in the 1950s and 1960s playing in the park on our own, which was quite safe in those days. Our favourite occupations were climbing trees and getting chased by the park keepers! Have happy memories of the band concerts and the concert parties in the summer.
