“Amazing community but there is not much around the area”
Most people take great care of their front gardens and most of the houses are very pretty and well looked after.
Most people take great care of their front gardens and most of the houses are very pretty and well looked after. There are gardening awards that are run locally and people take pride in their front gardens and put up posters about littering. Area is suitable for pets and children - there is a vet on the high street and many gps around. The area is super safe and has a low crime rate. I always feel safe when out and about on my own. The best part about living here is the open spaces, restaurants, shops and general facilities.
Cannot comment on traffic as have only lived here during Covid but it has never been an issue. Travel links are great with overground from earlsfield to Waterloo or our into Surrey. Also the tube on Southfields high street is the district line which takes you to London and out to Wimbledon. They often run works on both lines but usually one is running. There are also great bus links and it is easy to get to nice places on foot that are nearby. The trains are as clean as most of the trains in the country....
Parking can be tricky and you cannot always park near your house. You also have to get a permit from the council which is around £200 for a year and wasn’t easy to obtain. Bins are collected every Thursday - no complaints other than it can be hard to get the council to send out recycling bags when you need them and again have to go on the website to apply for them or pick them up from the office. It is super quiet where we live not much traffic and mainly families and professional couples leave nearby. There is a good mix of renters and owners.
I love living in Southfields as it has so much nearby. You have Earlsfield station which takes you into Waterloo and has tons of great pubs, restaurants and food shops outside the station. We are a short walk from Wimbledon tennis courts and Wimbledon Park which has a boating lake and golf club. There is also Wimbledon village which is a 30 min walk away where there are great restaurants like the Ivy and Giggling Squid. Also some great charity shops. In Southfields itself you have the district line which takes you into central and into Wimbledon. Also Southfields high street has a gym, m&s food, gails bakery, french patisserie and Sainsbury’s and Tesco’s local and a post office! The area is also super pretty and people adopt the soil around where the trees are planted along the pavement and put in flowers and ornaments. I feel super safe walking around Southfields and happily go to the gym at whatever time I like morning or evening. There are lots of open spaces as there is Wandsworth and wimbledon common fairly nearby. There is also Southfields shopping centre which has lots of great shops: Waterstones, hotel chocolat, new look, boots, Superdrug. It also has fast food restaurants and a cinema. Parking is a bit of a pain as you have to get a permit from the council which is tricky and costs around £200 a year. Close access to the A3 and M4 which is great for getaways plus easy to get into central London. I love living here!!
A review of Southfields from someone who has been living here for 18+ years
Southfields is a busy area! Lot so of cultural diversity and a very safe place too
There are so many tenaosott links Southfields station - district Bus stops to Clapham junction station, Vauxhall, Putney Bridge, Wimbledon, Tooting, Roehampton and many more popular places.
There is a lot of traffic in Southfields since it is considered to be part of Central London i.e. Wandsworth especially during 8-9am on roads and buses. With trains there is rush hour but luckily there are multiple trains which come an go
Southfields is a great area to live where there is access to a train station (district line). Most importantly, there is a whole range of shopping centres within Southfields I.e Southside, Putney High street and many more. Southfields is also close by to The Wimbledon Tennis court which is a thumbs up if you love tennis. Further there are multiple small shops such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s etc nearby Southfields train station. If you have children, there are so many outstanding schools nearby such as St Michaels (primary school) and Ashcroft Acadmey which is ranked first in the UK as a state school to do well in exams.
Amazing community but there is not much around the area
There are a few takeaways that are worth visiting. Although, there are not many restaurants from a wide range that can be selected from.
There is a bus stop nearby the area. However, there is no Underground Station around the area which could be an issue for those who need to get into Central London.
You can make friends with a lot of the locals as the majority are parents that live around the area who are welcoming. I find that the community within the area is nice as everyone always helps each other out when in need.
For parents with kids, this area would be pretty good in my opinion as there is a Primary School and Nursery nearby. However, one massive downfall I think is that there are no supermarkets around the area locally.
It's definitely an area good for families and kids
