Area desperately needs a Santander cycle station to connect it with the rest of London.

Lacking gyms and fitness options, only a few good gyms in the area without having to take public transport. Area desperately needs a Santander cycle station to connect it with the rest of London.

Transport

Good locks transport links, plenty of bus options and the overground train straight in Waterloo. Just missing a boris bike station to connect Wandsworth, Battersea and Clapham with Earlsfield. Shame to not have a tube connection, but the overground is a great alternative, connecting Waterloo and Earlsfield in just 15 minutes. Especially during rush hour there are plenty of trains and not too overcrowded like the northern line servicing the rest of SW London.

Community

Traffic management is awful! Too many cars using Earlsfield residential roads as a cut through but the roads aren’t accommodating enough for that amount of traffic. King George’s park offers some great outdoor space and a nice cut through to Southside shopping centre. KGP also offers a good selection of tennis courts and outdoor activities for the kids. Location is ideal to easily access the A3 and M25/M3/M4. Very close to the large Sainsbury’s in Southside. Good transport connections to the rest of London and central London in just 20 minutes. Lacking a wider range of bars, restaurants and social amenities. A few boutique brunch spots but not enough chain restaurants or bars with any atmosphere, however the area has some great pubs, The Wandle, the Halfway House and Leatherbottle to name a few

Amenities

Good selection, it’s growing but still new compared to many other popular areas in SW London! Earlsfield specifically has a few chain bars and restaurants but many of them are small local start ups. Great butchers near the station, a few good boutique cafes for brunch. Bean & Hop being one of them. There are two excellent restaurants in the area, a Thai in Earlsfield high street which does great food, eat in and take out. Then you have a the Sri Lankan vegan restaurant called Cafe Amarath - AMAZING FOOD! Could do with more exciting and lively bars to enhance the nightlife of the area other than the Wandle..!

Something for everyone

The local area has a real sense of community with something for everyone- young people, families and older residents. We are friendly and open to all. The area has not lost its original charm but has been regenerated and is much safer and cleaner than before.

Transport

Extremely well connected with the SWR station Earlsfield (3 minutes from Clapham Junction, 11 minutes from Waterloo), the district line at Southfields and the Northern line at Tooting all within a short distance. There are also buses direct to Putney, Victoria and Waterloo for cheaper travel 24 hours a day. There are Santander bikes to rent outside Southside shopping centre. The main junctions at Garratt Lane and Magdalen Road and Penwith Road and Earlsfield road can become busy at rush hour.

Community

There is a variety of people living on our street. Young family homeowners, older residents who have been in the area for many years, and young renters. It is family friendly. Being close to the main street and station the area can be busy with deliveries, workers and people passing throughout the day, all week, but it is very peaceful at night. There are resident parking restrictions 9-4 on weekdays with lots of spaces and the option to pay as you park. There is free parking at weekends. Bins are collected weekly although we sometimes have passers by flytipping near the station.

Amenities

Earlsfield has an assortment of independent cafés, bars, restaurants, beauty salons and shops. There are two good supermarkets plus an independent deli and butcher's - Dugard and Daughters - which stocks an impressive range of high welfare produce. Earlsfield residents can take advantage of being located in the middle of Garratt Lane, with plenty more retailers, pubs and restaurants to choose from. Highlights are the Earlsfield, with its range of world beers and wines and excellent pub grub, Amrutha all-you-can-eat vegan, Bean & Hop brunch and coffee, Marina fish bar and Blume florists. Located at each end of Garratt Lane are Wandsworth and Tooting, with more shopping options at Southside (including Waitrose, Planet Organic and the Sainsbury's superstore) and the excellent Tooting and Broadway markets for independent shops, bars and restaurants. King George's park along the Wandle river is an excellent outdoor space with tennis courts, a lake, children's play areas and skate park. It is also a short walk from the beautiful Wandsworth common.

Love the location and great value for money if buying new property!

Love the location and great value for money if buying new property! Could do with some more bars, better gym and gym class offerings.. Missing a bit of council investment!

Transport

In general good, lacking a direct tube line to central london but the District line isn't too far away but slow and long journey into town via that route. Overground into central is best option, only 30 mins to central London and the city. Nature of being on outskirts of London, everyone has cars. Traffic can be pretty busy during rush hours but if you're heading out of town, good routes to the A3!!

Community

Good - Great community feel - Cheap property prices - Welcoming neighbours - Close to local amenities and local park Bad - Traffic, a lot of traffic due to the cut throughs in Ealrsfield to miss the lights - Parking times aren't great for visitors - Streets aren't cleaned that regularly to be honest

Amenities

great selection of bars and restaurants! The Wandle, The Earlsfield, Halfway House, Leatherbottle to name a few. Would recommend swinging by the area for a beer and dinner but not a full night out, except for a Friday night in The Wandle pre covid-19. Good selection of parks and commons near by, plenty of options for dog walking. Range a supermarkets, could be better but with Southside 15 min walk away, plenty of options in the region.
