What locals say about SW11

  1. I love Battersea because of the beautiful park, it is well connected by bus to Chelsea and Clapham and it has character at the same time.

  2. I love SW11 because it's close to the centre of London, but has a real personality of its own. A very villagey yet urban feel.

  3. Battersea is close to Chelsea and Central London.

  4. This is the best area in London for an eclectic collection of cafes, restaurants and bars on your doorstep. Plus Europe's biggest train station!

  5. Battersea is an area being redeveloped so much and the people are friendly. It's very suitable for young families, as well as young people who have just started their career in central London.

  6. Lots of parks, restaurants and friendly people.
