Live the Sutton life
Sutton offers a lot more space and affordable housing than central spots in the capital, meaning you can look forward to a comfortable way of life in this charming Zone 5 area. There’s plenty of value to be found in the local housing market, while we can add even more value to your purchase thanks to offers such as our Movemaker scheme. With this, we could pay your estate agent fees if you have a home to sell as part of your move.
Things to see and do in Sutton
This is a great borough to live in if you like to spend time outdoors. From Carshalton Park to Manor Park, Cheam Park and Overton Park with is playground and football pitches, you can also enjoy a relaxing stroll around Howell Hill Nature Reserve to the borough’s south west.
There’s also Sutton Common to make the most of, as well as Saint Helier Open Space. Take your kids for a play around Carshalton Ponds, visit the nearby Honeywood Museum and head north to Mitcham
to spend the afternoon at Morden Hall Park. If you’re after a little more adventure, the Surrey Hills are just the other side of the M25, perfect for long walks through peaceful rural scenery.
There’s a wide selection of excellent schools across Sutton, with options for younger children including Manor Park Primary, Robin Hood Infants’ School and Stanley Park Infants School. These three schools are all rated as outstanding by Ofsted, with the same going for Victor Seymour Infants’ School in Carshalton and Westbourne Primary in West Sutton.
If you’re more interested in secondary schools, Sutton Grammar is an outstanding option for boys aged 11 to 18, while St Philomena’s Catholic High School for Girls is also in Ofsted’s highest bracket. Likewise the mixed Cheam High School and Glenthorne High School on Sutton Common Road.
