In and around Wandsworth

As a result of a major regeneration project, Wandsworth Town has benefited from a wave of recent investment that currently shows no signs of slowing with retail, leisure and employment opportunities all burgeoning.

The local area is set to be transformed with new public squares, shopping parades and pedestrian links being forged between Wandsworth High Street, Garratt Lane and King George's Park.

The borough benefits from excellent local schools, services and shops. With a variety of clubs, pubs, galleries and restaurants on its doorstep, this is a lively cultural hub within South West London that is well worth discovering.


Wandsworth has an active, friendly community. It has a strong 'backbone' where residents have championed some key aspects of the area's redevelopment. This includes projects such as the recent £1.5 million renovation of the town library, the successful reopening of the Wandsworth Museum and the ongoing Wandsworth Arts Festival, which showcases creativity from across the borough. The town’s spirit and character is increasing its popularity as a destination in which to live, work or visit.

It may not be possible to avoid the daily commute, but the location of Wandsworth Town makes it more palatable.


Wandsworth residents not only benefit from the proximity to the Southside shopping centre, with top retail names such as Waitrose, Topshop and soon-to-open Debenhams, but also from the local independents in the Old York Road area - the destination street for characterful galleries, boutiques and delis.
