“Lovely place to live!”
“Good, safe and quiet neighborhood”
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!!
Lovely place to live!
I feel super safe here, lots of young people and young families, and new restaurants opening on the high street is always a good sign too. All in all a great place to live with a lovely community and nice village-y feel.
Earlsfield train station is super well connected with trains going into Waterloo every few minutes during peaktimes and it only takes less than 15 minutes. The other way it’s only one stop to Wimbledon! Buses take you either to Wandsworth Southside (for more shopping), or down the other way to Tooting Broadway where you can hop on the Northern line. Or take a stroll to Southfields or Wimbledon Park tube stations in just 10 mins.
My street is a main road and therefor I can hear traffic noise to the front. The back however is super quiet! Even though we live next to a pub, I never hear any disturbances from there. We do have a super early bin collection around 6am on a Wednesday, bit annoying as it wakes me up but I guess it disrupts traffic less at that time.
The quality of local restaurants is superb and mostly independent which is so lovely, with cuisines catering to all tastes. An amazing Indian, Thai, steak, great pizza place etc. Spoilt for choice! The pubs too.. there’s one on almost every corner, all of them nice and all a bit different. Some of them focus on amazing food and cosy corners, others stay open late on a weekend for the younger clientele, and all of them do a good Sunday roast! I also love that we have so many parks and commons to choose from - truly a runners and dog walkers paradise!
Good, safe and quiet neighborhood
36, Black Female - from my perspective the positives are it’s safe, quiet (also a con), good schools. Typical mid-upscale suburban neighborhood. Cons- everything SHUTS DOWN around 7pm, restaurants are all national chains and there is zero diversity. I never see anyone who looks like me and the people are not particularly warm or friendly towards minorities imo. I come from East London and I miss it terribly and am thinking of maybe moving eventually. But if you love quiet and don’t do much but sit home with your kids in the evening - this is the place for you. If you are looking for excitement, vegan food, trendy restaurants/ bars, neighborhood events that aren’t “posh”, look to another neighborhood.
Southfields station is accessible and step free, with access to the district line. It is hardly ever busy and there are lots of seats. If you use private transportation, pretty much everything is within a 15-minute drive depending on where you live. Traffic is rarely bad and there are several different routes you can take to wherever you're going.
Just like any area there are good and bad. I love the quiet street that I reside in, there is not much going on just waving hello to your neighbors every now and then. Parking is not a problem as it is normally included in the house rent. I would like to see better assistance, resources and opportunities for the youth.
This is a nice quiet area that has many things to offer, from supermarkets to beauty shops. Everything is in walking distance. While I live in the outskirts of Wandsworth, even here the walkability of the area is still rather high. There are restaurants and shops all over the place not to mention that when you go near the river it only increases. I wish there were more vegan food and healthy options for restaurants and bars.
It's definitely an area good for families and kids
