    The London Borough of Merton has a number of sites associated with the life of Admiral Lord Nelson. These range from historic buildings and churches, to the site of the Admiral’s former residence Merton Place as well as land owned by his friends and neighbours.

    Although his residence here was punctuated by lengthy periods at sea, Nelson loved the peace and charm of the area he termed “dear, dear Merton.”

    The Nelson Trail has been designed to allow people to walk in the footsteps of Britain’s greatest naval hero, Admiral Lord Nelson.

    All the sites included are accessible by public transport. A number of buildings are open to the public or by prior appointment and you can cover most of the trail in one day.
