Nonsuch Park

An excellent place for children and families.

The Wrythe Recreation Ground

On this location is a large underground air-raid shelter from the Second World War. The entrance and vents are visible, but it is not possible to enter the bunker. It also backs onto Carshalton Athletic FC football ground.

The Hope

The Greyhound

A pub and hotel with lots of outside space - fab in the summer!

Carshalton Ponds

A wealth of wildlife, waterfalls and lovely scenery in the heart of Carshalton.

New Malden Sports Club

Catering for everyone from 3 to 90 years old, it's a great sports club for tennis, squash, badminton and the gym. It's very social and great for the whole family.

Open 'til late, grab freshly glazed doughnuts from the drive-thru.

Chennai Dosa

High quality South Indian food, fantastic service and the best value for money.

Sambal Express

A Sri Lankan/Indian takeaway with massive portions that is excellent value for money!

A Korean supermarket packed full of unusual and authentic ingredients from South Korea.

The Watchman

Once a police station and now a pub, The Watchman is set within a listed building.


One of many Korean restaurants along the High Street. Go and try their chicken teriyaki!
