Nonsuch Mansion


Tucked away off the side of the main road of the rather unremarkable town of Cheam, a Grade Two listed building remains preserved amongst fantastic masses of greenery and flowers.

Nonsuch Park, situated just between Cheam and Epsom, was created by Henry VIII in 1534. After a long walk through the, you will find a hidden gem in the form of Nonsuch House, or sometimes known as Nonsuch Mansion. The building was also comissioned by Henry VIII and later sold to Queen Elizabeth.

It is now the property of Epsom and Ewell's local council and they have done a top job in preserving the old relic. It can be used for catering events, weddings and is also an educational site.

If you want to go for a lovely walk somewhere a bit different come and explore this secret garden.

You are free to roam, cycle, picnic, play and walk dogs throughout the park. Once you reach the beautiful Nonsuch Mansion, you will find an enclosed garden which is full of flowers and statues.

There is also a lovely tea room and ice cream shop located on the side of the Mansion.

I have visited this park in all weathers for many years and still cannot believe I live so close to a picture perfect park in the midst of an urban town just outside of London.

Thankfully the local residents rallied for the park to be saved as it was being considered for a members only Golf club. Go to Nonsuch and appreciate it for it's naturalness- open to all, all of the time.

Nonsuch Park is a stone's throw from Wimbledon, Sutton, Epsom, Cheam and Kingston. Definately worth a bus journey, particularly on a sunny day.
