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.

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.

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

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!

Streatham Common is amazingly quiet and perfect for family living. There are loads of lovely old Victorian houses. We are also seeing an influx of young professionals, a bit like Balham a few years ago. Check out the Rookery and the woodlands at the top of the common, you wouldn't believe you were in central London. The transport links are great too. Every 15 minutes to Victoria, every 30mins to London bridge (although changing to the northern line at Balham is quicker). Plus the Thameslink runs through central London. A final comment on the restaurants/bars. A few years back we were lacking but recently we a dramatic improvement. I hear rumours of a tube line extension to the area is also being considered
It features a beautiful park with a hill view of the surrounding areas. Suitable for a modern life style with 24h Tesco, nice local pubs, gyms and well connected to central London. Many areas are also under development by the local council.
Streatham Common is very family friendly.
I'm a student and I've lived in Streatham Common for almost a year now and I love it! My road is lovely and quiet, and just down the road from the common and Thornton Heath park which is gorgeous in summer. The Streatham High Road is your typically diverse South London high road, and has everything you need (banks, shops, cinema, restaurants, bars etc.). There are 3 big supermarkets nearby (Sainsbury's, Morrisons and ASDA Clapham Junction) and SRC train station gets you to Victoria in just under 20 mins!
