Who We Are

The Somerville was first opened in 1971. Our commitment to providing a happy, safe and stimulating environment for all members of the Lewisham and Southwark community hasn’t changed since then. Find out about our history and read our mission statement.

Our youth and play provision covers our unique adventure playground plus a programme of educational and skills-based sessions run by staff and volunteers, all of which are free to access.

We offer lifelong learning opportunities to community and families and are home to a number of activities specifically geared towards older local residents.

Whoever you are the Somerville is a space for you!
