Sutton Ecology Centre is managed by the London Borough of Sutton's Biodiversity Team and is the main resource for environmental education in the borough.

The grounds are an excellent place for a stroll and to find out about wildlife habitats, composting, organic and wildlife gardening. The Centre runs educational visits for schools as well as events for adults, families and children, birthday parties, volunteer days and much more. The Ecology Centre also features allotments which showcase how you can grow your own fruit and vegetables.

You can now discover our grounds by following the Sutton Ecology Centre Trail. The trail includes the Nature, Heritage and Sensory aspects of our grounds - see leaflet below.


- To create better understanding of our local and global environment

- To encourage involvement in our environment by the whole community

- To serve as a base for environmental action throughout the Borough


The Sutton Ecology Centre Nature Trail is open to all, so come along after school or at the weekend for a stroll and an explore! See if you can spot seasonal changes to the plants and animal habitats, and discover hidden gems like the butterfly and forest gardens or the marsh and pond.

Simply bring along your leaflet and explore the trail at your leisure (pdf below).


How does the trail work? Follow the numbered waymarkers around the grounds. The trail has been designed to include information about the nature, heritage and sensory aspects of this local nature reserve. The markers include symbols to highlight the three different aspects of the trail.

The trail was developed as part of a Heritage Lottery Funded project to enhance the interpretation at the Sutton Ecology Centre and regenerate the grounds.
