Wandsworth Common, Very nice if you can afford it
Its an upmarket area, lots of TV people and private school kids. the local schools suffer a bit from that as many of the household don't use the state system. Every second person has a dog and people dress up in there country outfits to walk them in the park.
two Trainstaions whin walking distance, Earlsfield and Wandsworth common. From the door to victoria station is less than 30mins and Clapham common is one stop away, As it is the busiest rail station in the UK (19 platforms) it offers pretty good connections in all directions.
Bins are collected weekly and never had any qualms about too much rubbish. You can self-purchase as many bins as you want to, fill them up and they take them away. Police present is in the area, and it is therefore mostly free from trouble. There have been a few burglaries in the area and at times cars have been broken into to. the only trouble i have ever witnessed was a fight outside Wandsworth prison which is about 10 mins walk away.
With in 5 mins walk, we now have 2 great coffee places offering super lattes, and flat whites with the accompanying smashed avocado on toast. Restaurants although few offer a good selection. There is an India, a Pizza Express, a wonderful Chinese place call Good Earth (not your usaual sweet and sour pork balls, here you get lobster and oysters) a frensh Lebonises place and there is even a Micheline star placed on the common. The pubs in the area have a nice atmosphere and offer your standard pub fare. Slightly further away we have the whole of Northcoat road, which is all eateries, and those in Earlsfield where there are a couple of good Thai Places. Shops are sufficient with 2 Sainsbury's locals within 10 mins, your standard corner shops and even an upmarket wholefoods style food shop in Earlsfield.
A big Earlsfield fan
I find my local area a really great place to live. People are friendly and there is so much to do. Loads of lovely walks and green spaces. Lots of families and children but also some cool bars for younger residents. Only down side is because it’s London the house prices are very expensive. We think one day we will have to move as our family grows as it’s unlikely we’ll be able to afford a bigger house in the same area.
The trains come in and out of Earlsfield station very regularly. (Every 2 minute) so it’s easy to get into central london. It’s also easy to get out of London as Clapham Junction is close by and goes to loads of different places. There are loads of cycle lanes and traffic is never too bad if you have a car. Parking can sometimes be a bit of a nightmare but the buses are good so you don’t really need one.
On my street it’s mostly young couples. Some with children, some without. Noise has never been an issue and everyone is friendly. Bin collections are regular and there’s no traffic noise. Because the houses are quite close together, you can sometimes hear garden parties on a Summer’s evening but people having fun has never bothered me.
I really like living in Earlsfield. There are loads really nice local restaurants such as Well Kneaded for pizza, Nazmins (Indian) and Il Girasole (Italian) There are loads of really great Youngs pubs. Leather Bottle has a great garden and the Halfway House does a top Sunday Roast next to the fire. Wandsworth Common is a really nice big green space with restaurants and supermarkets nearby for takeaway food and drinks. It’s also super close to Southside shopping centre and a massive Sainsbury’s for all shopping needs. The trains leave Earlsfield station very regularly (every 2 minutes) so it’s easy to get into central London. Since moving here, I’ve met lots of friendly people and have joined a local netball club. I really recommend it.
My area is trendy and lively and the people are friendly.
My area is trendy and lively and the people are friendly. It went through a recent period of regeneration so is a high quality area. suitable for families and relatively safe from my experience
TFL is a good service and you can get pretty much anywhere in London from my home through buses or tubes- although tube stations are quite a long walk from my house. These services come very often and are reliable for the most part, traffic and cleanliness or a lot of rush during rush hours are issues but they are expected in London.
My street is a nice place to live with good neighbours and respectable social behaviour and an average amount of traffic for greater london. mainly families live here and it’s a friendly environment. parking availability isn’t an issue for residents and bin collection is regular.
Wandsworth common is a 2 minute walk from my house- a beautiful big open green space with trees, benches, paths, kiosks and cafes and a playground as well as small lakes. It’s a lively area so there’s also a large selection of different authentic cuisines and bars and shops a little distance from my house.
Best area I have lived so far in London!
