“The rookery is a beautifully cared for garden that is run by the friends of Streatham Common, a coop of dedicated locals who have turned it in to a fantastic walking spot and gardens. There is also a cafe located at the start of it, but I'm more putting it in to recommend the Rookery itself. If you fancy tennis, there is also a single court there.”

“The former home of the Duke of Cannizaro, Cannizaro House is now a four-star hotel. If you are visiting the area, and looking for a place to stay, then you won't be disappointed with Cannizaro. But you don't have to be sleeping over to enjoy the facilities. It has a beautiful garden that is free to anyone who wants to visit, and they do outstanding afternoon teas.”
