Things to Do in Stoneleigh
For lovers of history and nature, Stoneleigh has a lot to offer as it borders Nonsuch Park – and indeed in the 17th Century, the area where Stoneleigh now lies was part of the Great Park of Nonsuch Palace, a deer hunting park established by Henry VIII surrounding the former Nonsuch Palace that he had built, which was later passed on by Charles II to one of his mistresses, Barbara, Countess of Castlemaine. The park can be accessed from several parts of Stoneleigh and visitors can trace the steps of those that frequented the Tudor and Stuart Courts all those years ago, perhaps stopping for a coffee and a slice of cake in Nonsuch Park House, before admiring the gardens and their resident peacocks, or watching BMX bikers tackling the jumps and trails along the ‘Devil’s Dyke’. The park is very popular with dog walkers although there is a fenced-off area for families wishing to picnic away from any dogs. There are also several other parks in Stoneleigh that are fitted out with children’s play equipment.
