Where do Streatham and surrounding areas locals go?

The Rookery

A walled garden that would not look out of place in a BBC costume drama. Stunning throughout the year and still relatively undiscovered by the residents of South London. The gardens are beautifully maintained by a justifiably proud set of volunteers.

Tariq Halal Meats

An amazing butchers in Streatham that is part of a small franchise of equally great stores.

Norwood Grove House

Known locally as the "White House", Norwood Grove House and its well-tended formal gardens were opened in 1926 by the future King Edward VIII. It is the centrepiece of Norwood Grove itself; a large expanse of grass from which you can overlook Streatham and its surrounding areas. It is thoroughly underutilised and all the better for it!

Tooting Bec Lido

A great place for a swim! Because it's an open air pool, it's ideal in the summer.

La Casita

A fantastic choice of Spanish food and drink all at great value!


A great recently opened restaurant on Streatham Hill. Go here for something completely different to the other places in the area.

West Norwood Feast

A community market in south London. Community comes together to taste, eat, drink and admire or buy all handmade items and all things that are on offer.

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

So many activities for adults and children. I personally love the exercise classes, Zumba and Boxfit.

Chicken Shop

Much better than your average high street chicken shop! You must visit this place...

Hildreth Street Market

On a miserable English day, the best place to go to put a 'spring' in your step is Hildreth Street Market, where stall owners sell beautiful seasonal flowers.


The best Caribbean restaurant in Tooting Bec and their lunch deal is only £3.50!

Cut the Mustard

This delightful cafe between Tooting and Streatham is a real hidden gem. They have everything you would expect on a brunch menu and the portions are huge!


This bar serves drink and food throughout the day, but by night it becomes one of the most popular music venues in Clapham. There's DJs and dancing in the garden until the early hours.

The Bull

This gastropub next to Streatham Common is fantastic! The décor is really cool, there's an impressive outdoor seating area with fires and the food is outstanding.

Brown & Green Cafe

Grab a quick snack and a coffee whilst at Crystal Palace Station.
