Things To Do South Of The Thames

**Advertisement Feature**

London is among the biggest draws for tourists in the world. Every year, millions of sightseers, foreign and domestic, make the trip to the capital. As you might be aware, the city is packed with fantastic things to see and do. Despite this, it’s just a handful that receive the majority of attention. Once you’ve taken a trip on the London Eye, and spent a few hours ogling the waxworks at Madame Tussauds, you’ll have to dig a little deeper to entertain yourself. Thankfully, doing so is almost always worth the effort. 

Let’s take a look at some of the best attractions in London, south of the Thames. 

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home 
If you’re looking to rehome a dog or a cat, then a visit to the country’s most famous home for pets should be a priority. Battersea Dogs and Cats Home has been nestled in its current home, just next to the power station, since the late 19th century, and it’s open to visitors every day. 

Clapham Common 
South London is packed with parkland, ranging from the sprawling greenery of Richmond Park to the more tightly-packed Clapham Common. The latter is a little closer to the beaten track, and makes a perfect place to grab a bite to eat after a long stroll through the park. This place holds the distinction of housing the oldest bandstand in London, making it an object of particular curiosity. It’s also easily reachable from outside London; you can get a train from Milton Keynes to Clapham Junction and be there in just over an hour. 

Tennis fans flock to the south of London every summer to watch the greats of the modern game battle it out for the sport’s highest accolade. But if you’re a real fan of this sport, there’s reason to visit Wimbledon even when the tournament isn’t in progress; here, you’ll find a beautiful museum dedicated to the venue, and to the sport as a whole. What better way could there be for a tennis fan to spend a day in South London? 

Hobbledown Adventure Farm Park 
Just inside the southern rim of the M25 you’ll find this wildly-popular adventure park and zoo. It’s packed with a wide variety of farm and zoo animals, including a new pygmy goat walkthrough area, where visitors are allowed to feed the goats. Then, of course, there’s the playground itself. If you have children to entertain in the south of London, then this attraction is an absolute must-visit.
