If you’re looking for more choice, neighbouring Sutton, just 2.5 miles away, has two indoor shopping centres, a bustling high street and all the main supermarkets. It’s also home to the renowned Royal Marsden Hospital and a satellite of the Moorfields Eye Hospital. Sutton’s library, with its café and shop, is open seven days a week.
Living in Hackbridge, you’re surrounded by historic towns, villages and parks. These include Beddington Park, with over 100 acres of grassland and trees, a boating lake, pond, restaurant, and wonderful riverside walks. Also its exercise classes outside the Pavilion Café every Monday are free for over 50s.
Carshalton Park, Oaks Park and Mitcham Common offer more beautiful open spaces within a 10-minute drive. You also have Honeywood Museum in Carshalton, and the Grade II listed Carshalton House water tower and grounds.
For spectator sports, the All England Tennis Club at Wimbledon is just six miles away, while Epsom racecourse is an easy 20-minute drive. Closer to home, Beddington Park has a popular cricket club.
You also have plenty of options for eating and drinking. The friendly Pavilion Café in Beddington Park welcomes dogs and serves food and snacks throughout the day, plus, for a hearty breakfast, there’s the Duke’s Head Pub nearby. In Sutton, the choice is even greater: almost 200 restaurants serving virtually every cuisine, while nearby Carshalton and Mitcham also offer a great selection of eateries.
There’s a great social scene here, too. Every Wednesday, Belsize Court in Sutton holds social afternoons for over 65s, and there are coffee mornings every Thursday at the Woodcote Flying Club at Hillcrest House. And for those who enjoy exercising their vocal chords, there’s a singing club at St Oswald’s Church in North Cheam.
The location of Brio Button House has even more to offer, as it’s part of New Mill Quarter, a wider regeneration development creating a whole new community in the heart of Hackbridge. With this comes a range of amenities, including a new supermarket and other shops, and a dedicated green space, Hackbridge Gardens.
The whole development has achieved ‘Outstanding’ in the Government-endorsed ‘Built for Life’ accreditation, which rates design elements, such safe street design and access to facilities.
