"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."

Tooting's popularity is ever growing thanks to its vibrant high street and the soon to be 24-hour service on the Northern Line.

A great mix of independent and high street stores gives Balham a real community feel that always impresses my clients.
