Places to sledge in London

sledgeing in london

Parliament Hill
The highest point in the capital becomes London’s equivalent to the Cresta Run when the snow comes.

Primrose Hill
Probably the most popular place in London when the snow comes. Some great slopes but can get a bit crowded.

Horniman Gardens
Head to the big hill by the old animal pen for the best sledging spot.

Hilly Fields Park
Long and gentle runs, popular with locals.

Blythe Hill Fields
A steep run that’s not for the faint of heart.

Duppas Hill
One for the kids: gentle and short but usually very quiet too.

Royal Observatory Greenwich
The hill just in front of the Royal Observatory is the best place not just in Greenwich Park, but probably in all of South London. Be careful of the fence at the bottom though.

Boxhill
People flock from miles around to enjoy the snow here, and for good reason. Acres of slopes of all shapes and sizes make it well worth the trip if you’re keen.

Croham Hurst
Some steep slopes near the golf course, just watch out for the trees.

Crystal Palace Park
What this hill lacks in length, it makes up for in width and steepness.

Brockwell Park
Something for all ages with a range of gradients. The best spots are by the cafe, where they also serve a mean hot chocolate.

Alexandra Palace
Long and quite speedy runs.

Petersham Common
Dodge the deer in Richmond Park. The west side is the best side for sledging.

Peckham Rye Park
Some smallish slopes, perfect for smallish children.

Springfield Park
The park runs steeply down to the Lee so great sledding possibilities.
