I great Park tucked out of the way by Mottingham Station. Great for viewing birds. Easily Accessible by Public transport and car. For the position it is in London it is always quite and not crowded..

No parking on site. I went by rail, the station (Mottingham) is about 100 yards from the entrance, I think that there is parking there and in the road outside. I am sorry I do not know the opening hours. I went on a Sunday... More
