This lovely quirky bar is quiet mid-week for a lovely intimate meal or catch up. And lively on the weekend with a lovely band. Good atmosphere. Rustic style.

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

It's like a Tardis, has a huge garden with beach huts, amazing food and clientele, shows screen sports but best of all are the bands and entertainment.

A taste of the Mediterranean, this Italian deli also has a patio garden, where you can sit and enjoy their delicious dishes.

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!

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.

The best fresh coffee, croissants and bread. Lovely family-owned independent. Get there early for their bread and croissants - they sell out fast.

Head to this pizza restaurant for a delicious gelato on a warm summer's day in the Crystal Palace Triangle!

This Indian restaurant's food is delicious. I am constantly ordering too much, but never upset by the bill. They always offer me free drinks too!

I love West Norwood as it is a vibrant, friendly community with so much to do.
A good community spirit. We have resided in Norbury (Pollards Hill) for over 30 years, having raised three children here. We have all benefited from living in a tranquil area with good neighbours, which provides great transport links.
Awesome views and fastest travelling needs.
It's easy. People from all backgrounds rub along just fine. Feels a bit of a hidden gem but likely to change with a new swimming pool/gym and leisure centre and cinema too. Some great local treasures like Rosebery's auction house and South London Theatre and again, will become more of a destination as SLT are planning to do major restoration works to the theatre. Think Balham 15 years ago when it was at the tipping point.

The Shala - Postnatal MassageThe Shala
After the birth, post-natal massage can provide an invaluable opportunity for mother's to allow time for self-nurture. Ideally, all new mothers would have a massage as soon after birth as possible, to help the muscles release the muscle memory of labour, gently aid healing and help with spinal realignment. These are all important factors in helping your body to return to its pre-pregnancy state. Post-natal massage can be easily done with your baby tucked up beside you, or feeding. Website

Tippee Toes Music
Our class structure is designed for carers to fully participate in the class with their child and baby which is an extremely important part of the success of the classes. The more you take part in the music making and movement, the more your child will get out of it. Children learn by imitation and when they see you singing, playing musical instruments and moving to the music they will try to do the same. Website
