What’s it all about?
Desirable residential streets, plenty of open space, a choice of schools and excellent transport links all attract young couples and families to Wandsworth, but until recently the waterside was blighted by its industrial past. Much of this has now been swept away and replaced with attractive apartments and riverside walkways that make the most of its excellent location. These new developments have lured young professionals to the area and in turn there's been a boom in restaurant and bar openings. Weekends are ushered in with a mix of people crowding the pubs like The Ship and The Alma, enjoying the wilds of the common or buzzing Santander Cycles docking stations in Wandsworth, and the local council offers free monthly rides for beginner or returning cyclists, as well as free safety checks.
Getting away: Gatwick and Heathrow airports are both under an hour away by car.
Wandsworth parents have a good deal of choice when it comes to schools. At primary level, there is Allfarthing School, St Michael’s Church of England School, Earlsfield Primary and West Hill Primary. For secondary age children, choose from Saint Cecilia’s, Southfields Academy or Bolingbroke Academy. There are several private primary and prep schools in the area, and for secondary schools, nearby Battersea has Emanuel School. Wandsworth is also home to a drama school, the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, which offers degree courses in acting and stage management, as well as a range of foundation courses.
