Best pub quiz on a Tuesday night!!

The Rookery

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.

Hideaway

The best live music venue in South London.

Norwood Grove House

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!

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!

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.

"In the '70s and '80s, 32 Ambleside Avenue, Streatham was used as a brothel run by infamous madam Cynthia Payne. Here, well heeled gentlemen, including MPs and judges, could exchange luncheon vouchers for the women's services."

Streatham Common is the perfect place to hang out when the sun is shining.

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

Bradley Slade

A mixture of independent and high street shops line Streatham High Road, which has seen great development over the past few years.
