MARKETS



The weekend market is held every Sat and Sun 
between 10 am and 5 pm, with indoor and 
outdoor stalls and shops selling a range
of hand-crafted goods, gifts, 
jewellery and fashion
 
There are also a few shops and  
Restaurants/Cafes which are 
open during the week




The market is located next to the river 


There is a working waterwheel, in fact the
only one in London! The local history 
is told on the walls of the wheel house


They also run pottery classes   
(and pottery is for sale)
in the wheel house





There are three ways to walk to
Abbey Mills from the tube station

1. (Red arrows map below) Come out of the tube
and turn left. Keep walking for about 5-10 minutes
until you come to a big junction (of Christchurch
Road and Merantun Way) with the Tandem Centre
shopping centre on your left and Sainsbury's on your
right. Cross the junction so that you are on the same
side of the road as the Virgin Gym and Premier
Inn hotel on Merantun Way. Keep walking past
the hotel and you'll come to a pedestrian ramp
going down. Walk down and through the car
park towards KFC and Pizza Hut. Walk past
them and you'll come to the market area

 2. (Blue arrows map below) Come out of the
tube station and carry on straight ahead
past the big ugly tower towards Sainsbury's.
When you get to the little bridge that leads
from the High Street to the supermarket, don't
cross it but carry on to your right instead,
along the Wandle river. Keep walking until you
come to a crossing (Merantun Way). Cross the
road and you'll see a little bridge leading to
the left. Cross the bridge and you are
in the market area

3. (First blue then yellow arrows map below)
Come out of the tube station and carry on straight
ahead past the big ugly tower towards Sainsbury's.
When you get to the supermarket carry on underneath
it across the car park. Take the underground
pedestrian tunnel (under Merantun Way)
signposted Merton Abbey Mills. It's directly
opposite the Marks & Spencer back entrance.
Go through the tunnel and carry on to your right
towards KFC and Pizza Hut. Walk past them
and you'll come to the market area
