Sheen & Mortlake – Our favourite bits

Jonathan: Sunday lunch in the Hare and Hounds Garden for me. You wouldn’t know there is a huge garden out the back and always has a nice atmosphere.

Klaudia: Walking through Sheen Woods in Autumn, wrapped up warm and kicking leaves followed by a drink in The Plough on Christchurch Road.

Chris: The whole of Sheen is a surprising hidden gem with independent shops, transport links, Richmond Park and the River Thames all within a relatively short distance of each other.

East Sheen and Mortlake offer some real gems such as Palewell Park with its playground, café, football pitches, tennis courts and golf. Sheen Common also offers tennis courts, woodland and regular cricket matches. Mortlake Green has a playground and basketball court. If you need more, stroll down to the river and enjoy one of the riverside pubs like The Ship or the White Hart.


One of the main reasons people move to the area are the outstanding schools. The primary schools are highly sought after with Sheen MountEast Sheen Primary and Thompson House School all assessed as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. Richmond Park Academy is the main comprehensive secondary school in the area, but there are also many private schools too.

What people say


"We purchased our house with Parkgate. We were truly delighted with service we got from them. They supported us not only till sales agreement but they supported us all the way through even after completion - unlike many many other agencies. All team members we interacted were great. Every other experience I had with real estate agencies are unfortunately quite the opposite. I wish all success to Parkgate as they deserve it."
