Located in the heart of Streatham it is the hub of the community. This comunity centre is a multi-facility location with London's only Olympic size ice rink.

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 decor I have ever seen in a bar. The Hamlet is almost like a Hidden Gem in Streatham. Beautiful food, cocktails and staff.

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

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

The owners who are friendly and love a chat and a joke. The bar sells great tapas and you can enjoy an old fashioned leisurely lunch in a bar that has the atmosphere of a bygone age - love it.

One of only a few decent coffee shops on Streatham High Road. It's slightly pricier than its competitors, but for the quality of the food and coffee, it's justified.

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

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

It is a very exquisite area with a strong sense of a peaceful atmosphere. The friendly community surrounded makes it a very peaceful atmosphere, where all individuals are loving and caring. The nearby shops make it easy for one to have access to a variety of food and clothing. It is very close to a bus stop, and a railway station, allowing one to have easy access to transport. The houses in the area are very big, with a spacious view. The area is very clean, and a damage to something e.g. property within the area is taken very seriously by the local authority. The local park is around 5 minutes walk - with a green atmosphere and exercise machines to help one stay fit and have a healthy lifestyle. Overall, as an individual I am delighted to live in such a fulfilling atmosphere - and I hope people have the same positive view about this location, as it is a remarkable place to live in.
1. Access to two lovely wild-life-friendly open spaces (Tooting Common and Streatham Common/ Rookery/ Norwood Grove) 2. Good transport links (would be even better if we had the tube) 3. The unique, wonderful (and huge) Tooting Bec Lido
Excellent nursery (Cavendish Lodge in Lewis Road) - has just been ranked best in south London by Mamas & Papas. Lovely community feeling and lots of young families. Schools are getting better too, some really decent primary schools around.
The rookery up the common - lovely place to go for a picnic. Also great are Streatham festival and overground connections.
Streatham Common overground is at the end of my road which means transport links around London are perfect. It takes less than 15minutes to get into Victoria and is 3 mins away from Balham which gives direct access to the Northern Line. Also, at the other end of my road is Streatham Common. Always clean and very family friendly. Great for summer runs or just relaxing in the sunshine.
Tooting Common and Wigmore Lawn Tennis Club.
