Cheam Village

Why move to Cheam?

With excellent transport links into London, a friendly community, spacious homes, good shopping and plenty of green space it’s no surprise that Cheam has come to represent the suburban dream. There is also an interesting history to discover and some beautiful period buildings to explore.

Some things to love about living in Cheam

Cheam has no shortage of sports and leisure facilities but Dance Options, located in the heart of the village, offers something that bit different. It was originally established in 1993 with the intention of creating a high level competitive atmosphere to train and enhance elite dancers from around the world. Since then it has evolved and now offers a range of facilities to suit professionals and non-professionals alike, including numerous dance fitness classes and coaching for all levels.

The Grumpy Mole is the newest addition to Cheam's wide selection of pubs and eateries which means the village now boasts its first ""Gastro Pub"". Building on the successful formula of their two other venues in Tadworth and Brockham, The Grumpy Mole aims to serve superb food in cosy, yet stylish surroundings. Situated opposite Nonsuch Park, it's the perfect venue for a pre or post walk lunch with the family.

A little bit of history

Behind its innocent, idyllic, suburban exterior, Cheam hides a racy past. Having appeared in the Domesday Book and dating back to at 1018, Cheam was originally known for pottery before gaining a reputation for its breweries. Later King Henry VIII chose Cheam as the home for his extravagant Nonsuch Palace, but died before his spectacular royal palace was finished. Charles II later gifted the elaborately decorated palace to his mistress Lady Castlemaine. She then, having run up gambling debts, was forced to pull it down to pay her bills.

Need to know

HRH Prince Phillip went to school in Cheam, at Cheam School before it moved to Berkshire.

Cheam Village, centred around the Sutton, North Cheam, South Cheam and Ewell crossroad, is home to Cheam’s most up-market shopping area. Options include a Waitrose, a Magestic Wine Warehouse and plenty of independent shops, plus a Costa Coffee for a well-deserved pre, mid, or post shopping refresher. Meanwhile, North Cheam, about a mile north of the village, also offers great shops, including a large Sainsbury’s, a post office and even more independent shops. And no round up of Cheam’s retail would be complete without a mention for our excellent local butcher, S.M. Pinegar - a real gem.
