"There is a crater on Mars named Tooting because this is where the man who discovered it is from."

Figge's Marsh is a lovely green space with pretty wildflowers amongst South West London's residential streets.

Tooting's popularity is ever growing thanks to its vibrant high street and the soon to be 24-hour service on the Northern Line.

What locals say about Furzedown

  1. The area has a relaxed atmosphere with a good selection of convenience shops and a local bakery. Situated just off from Tooting common there is an abundance of green space to walk and run around. Balham is about a 20 minute walk past the duck pond and swings. Very family friendly and the only place I have lived in London where I actually know my neighbours name. Transport isn't as convenient as other places but the lower prices off set this once you invest in a push bike to cycle the 5 minutes down to the tube. It is well worth the small compromise to enjoy the peace and quiet of this West London community.
