Why not explore the nearby areas of Colliers Wood, Tooting, Mitcham, Streatham, Merton, Balham, Earlsfield, Wimbledon, Norbury and Wandsworth Common

"The Granada Cinema in Tooting is the first Grade II listed cinema in Britain. It is built in an Art Deco style and has seen many famous faces on its stage, including Frank Sinatra and Carmen Miranda."

Still affordable yet benefiting from recent gentrification, Colliers Wood is the next hot spot..

Tooting and surrounding areas quote

Oliver Bendall

Colliers Wood is well connected with the City and central London yet boasts green spaces for families and walking the dog.

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