Whether you want to shop til you drop, or relax with a cappuccino, you'll enjoy your time in Cheam Village. Check out the interesting shops along the Broadway – including a fantastic optician's, Optics Direct, where you can pop in and order a pair of the latest designer frames, at credit-crunch prices. If you've got perfect 20-20 vision, you might drop by into one of the pubs instead... but don't blame us if things go a little hazy after a pint or two of real ale (Cheam has a long association with beer, so it would seem appropriate to sample a tipple or two).
Last orders: the old site of Cheam Brewery's cellars (this junction is known as the Crossways)
For dinner, take your pick from the tempting Indian, Thai and Italian restaurants. Pizza Express has just opened up in the Village – and the American Hots are going down a storm. And surely after all your sightseeing, you deserve a slab of their waistband-busting chocolate fudge cake?
Above left: the Cheam Village sign at Crossways incorporates images of Whitehall and the iconic St Dunstan's spire. Above right: don't mock the mock Tudor – these shops on the Broadway are now considered to have architectural merit
They say there's always magic in the air, on Broadway (Cheam Broadway)
Take a butchers: this traditionally run butchers, S. M. Pinegar, sells the best sausages in Cheam (fact!). You can find the shop at 24 Ewell Rd, Cheam
