Places to enjoy within a 30 minute walk
Zone 1 is home to many areas of interest, all within walking distance of Elephant Park. Discover all the places you can visit within a 30 minute walk from West Grove.
A celebration of the elements, Elephant Park’s waterscape play area is made of tactile porphyry stone from Italy. The design honours the stone’s natural appearance and is unlike anything in the area – not least due to its joyously interactive elements such as water jets and a flowing water stream to play in. Visit the Elephant Springs page for more.
Walworth is full of activities and areas of interest. When visiting the area you can expect a quieter part of London with hidden spots to enjoy. Home to Burgess Park, one of the largest parks in South London, you can enjoy a quiet stroll. There are also plenty of bars/restaurants such as The Beehive, Fowlds Café and La Luna.
10 minute walk
Kennington and Oval
Just a hop, skip and jump from Elephant Park, Kennington is filled with things to do. Take a step back in time by visiting the Imperial War Museum or (like Bermondsey) Kennington's own distillery – Beafeater Distillery – where you can learn all there is to know about Mother’s Ruin. There are also bars and pubs aplenty with The Tankard, The Duchy Arms and many more to explore.
6 minute walk
This culturally rich area of London is packed with things to do. Visit the Florence Nightingale Museum, The Hayward Gallery or Lambeth Palace and, of course, the London Dungeon is also on the list of top things to do when visiting the area.
21 minute walk
Visit Maltby Street Market, now one of London’s most popular weekend markets. Favoured by the foodies among us, you can discover all sorts of eateries as well as pop-up bars. There are also plenty of breweries and distilleries to enjoy such as Bermondsey Beer Mile and Jensen’s Gin Distillery. However, if you’re more of a fan of open green spaces, it’s home to lovely parks such as Leathermarket Gardens, the Spa Memorial Gardens and Downing Roads Floating Gardens.
