Parklife is a specialist and award winning café operator in London’s green spaces.

We were founded in late December 2013 and are based in Wandsworth, South West London. We currently run two lovely London park cafés, The Skylark Café on Wandsworth Common and The Rookery Café on Streatham Common.

We will shortly be opening a third site in South London.

The Rookery Café

Our aims are to:

Provide residents and visitors a place to come to relax and escape the stress of urban life in beautiful surroundings. Run as a socially, environmentally and economically responsible business. Be a strong and developmental commercial partner to local authorities.


“A happy and healthy community is not a fairytale.”


We’re doing this by creating and running a great café business for the users of London’s green spaces. Our approach is to renovate these historic buildings to a high standard where our amazing and friendly teams serve freshly made brunch, bakery and drinks in a warm and efficient manner. To get most from these special locations, we also offer evening private venue hire and catering services, as well as providing free use of the cafes for community groups involved in the green spaces in which we operate.

We support these groups with marketing and fundraising to play our part in improving London’s Parks and Commons for the benefit of all. We’re actively considering new sites within the M25 and are always on the look out for great staff to join our growing company.
