Destination guide

Making a base near the UK capital

The leafy town of Sutton is just half an hour's train ride from the capital, so choosing a Sutton vacation rental can be a great choice for anyone visiting London for work or pleasure. Nestled in the foothills of the North Downs, Sutton has a busy pedestrianized high street, many traditional pubs and restaurants, numerous golf courses, and serene public parks. Just a 30-minute drive south, the beautiful rolling heathland and broadleaf forest of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty make for a peaceful escape or a scenic venue for an English country pub lunch.

Things to do

Green spaces in Sutton

On the high street, the city's green wall, a vertical garden, breathes new life into the center of town, but there is plenty of green space around the local area to enjoy as well. One popular house and park close by, managed by the National Trust, is Morden Hall Park. An expansive sprawl of wetlands and greenery on the banks of the River Wandle, with footbridges, picnic areas, a charming cafe, gift shop, and garden center, as well as children's activities throughout the year, it is just a 15-minute drive north of Sutton. Meanwhile, around 45 minutes to the west, Chessington World of Adventures theme park is a fun, family-friendly day out.


Shopping and sightseeing in Sutton

Perhaps Sutton High Street's biggest claim to fame is its connection to one of the biggest bands in history. This was the location of the venue where the Rolling Stones were discovered by a music industry impresario. The band played several early gigs at the Red Lion public house on the high street, which is today known as the Winning Post. The Victorian shopping street is also a conservation area and has a mix of thriving local shops and big chains. Just off the high street, Sutton's mainline station has regular services that whizz commuters and sightseers into Central London. Sutton is also convenient for Wimbledon visits – the famed heartland of tennis is only around a 25-minute drive away from Sutton vacation rentals.


Sutton through the year

Summer is a wonderful time to stay at a Sutton vacation rental, allowing you to make the most of the access Sutton has to the beautiful Surrey Hills. England's south coast is within easy distance as well, with regular trains linking Sutton with the picturesque lanes of Brighton. These are filled with boutique shops and restaurants, and lead down to the popular pebble beach and historic Brighton Pier. Equally, spring and fall are wonderful seasons to explore the nearby downs, while winter is the perfect time to enjoy the bars, restaurants, and Christmas lights.

Natural features

Explore the Surrey Hills

The rolling green fields, heather-scented moorlands and shady broadleaf woodland of the Surrey Hills and the South Downs are crisscrossed by footpaths and biking trails. Stepping out from your Sutton vacation rental, you can go for a hike along these paths through ancient woodland and flower-filled meadows, enjoying the butterflies that dance alongside the trails, and birdsong that fills the air. It is the English countryside at its best. With the route home dotted with gastropubs and little cafes, there are plenty of reasons to extend your day out.
