A walled garden that would not look out of place in a BBC costume drama. Stunning throughout the year and still relatively undiscovered by the residents of South London. The gardens are beautifully maintained by a justifiably proud set of volunteers.

Known locally as the "White House", Norwood Grove House and its well-tended formal gardens were opened in 1926 by the future King Edward VIII. It is the centrepiece of Norwood Grove itself; a large expanse of grass from which you can overlook Streatham and its surrounding areas. It is thoroughly underutilised and all the better for it!

"Located below an anonymous block of flats called Pear Tree House in Upper Norwood was a secret Civil Defence bunker from the Cold War. The bunker was not secret for long and was frequently daubed with CND stickers, before it was closed after pressure from the self-declared nuclear free Lambeth council in 1993."
