"It has got lots of great outdoor spaces and parks, as well as the River Wandle. Whenever I walk alongside it I feel like I'm in the countryside and provides a little bit of piece in the bustling life of London... Colliers Wood is also very close to Wimbledon with lots of amazing bars, restaurants and shops, however I have noticed a couple of new cafes and pubs opening in Colliers Wood too - seems that it has started to bec... more

"I was invited to the Picnic in South Park Gardens last Sunday. I was very much surprised how wordefull the park is, as well as, the lovely community spirit there. Wish I could afford to live there. Wonderfull little place!"

"We like living in Copse Hill because it does not feel like you live in London. There are mostly detached houses on the road. It is very green with lots of trees and near Wimbledon Common, the Golf course and it has a good tennis club, pub and riding stables on the doorstep. Yet it is possible to walk to Wimbledon village with it boutiques, and restaurants and a short ride on the bus down to the main part of Wimbledon with its... more

"Wimbledon Common is a large open space in Wimbledon south-west London, totalling 460 hectares (1,100 acres).[1] There are three named areas: Wimbledon Common, Putney Heath, and Putney Lower Common which together are managed under the name Wimbledon and Putney Commons. Putney Lower Common is separated from the rest of the Common by about 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometres) of built-up area of southwest Putney. "

"South Park Gardens is definitely the best part of Wimbledon outside the village. There are 2 grade II listed parks in Wimbledon, Cannizaro and South Park Gardens and you have a real sense of pride in the South Park Gardens community and can really feel that people genuinely love living here. Please come and see for yourself, its a very special place indeed!"

"Absolutely love living here. It's a great secret "Gem" where community spirit, open green space and friendly neighboorhood blends in together. It's also so convenient to the town, village and transport links. I will live here until the last day of my life. Love South Park Gardens!"

"We have been living in Colliers Wood for almost 3 years now and really like it. We wanted to be close to Wimbledon but with a cheaper rent! We have a baby and there are so many playgroups and nice families around. We enjoy going to the small local market and to the Tandem center where there are plenty of shops. I work in central London and it's very easy to commute with the northern line. This is an area that I find safe w... more
