The Nelson Arms

15 Merton High StreetNelson Arms pub

This building is on the Nelson Trail.

The pub marks the site of the lodge and entrance gates to Nelson’s Merton Place. The estate originally fell within two parishes. The southern part including the house and grounds lay in Merton, while the stables, gardens and remaining farmland lay in Wimbledon. A brick-lined tunnel passed under the road, allowing the residents of Merton Place to travel from one part of the estate to the other.  

The current building dates from 1910. Its front is decorated with a unique series of murals by Garters of Poole, depicting Lord Nelson and HMS Victory.

How to get there

The pub stands at the junction between Abbey Road and Merton High Street.

It is a 5 minute walk from Colliers Wood, or South Wimbledon Underground Station and lies on the following bus routes: 57, 152, 200, 219, 493.
