"There is a crater on Mars named Tooting because this is where the man who discovered it is from."

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.
