A green oasis in a busy city. You will not believe how many parks and commons there are in walking distance with lovely restaurants and cafes at hand for every taste and pocket
London's best kept secret!
Colliers Wood is a quiet area with the Tandem Centre and Abbey Mills there is always somewhere to eat out and shop. The Venus bistro next to the tube is highly recommended. I have had no trouble walking home at night and I have lived in the area for 6 months now.
Its a very nice quite suburb on SW London, with good connections to Central London.
A very safe area, even after midnight with a night bus link from London.
2 retail parks minutes walking distance and lots of restrants in the locality.
A large Sainsbury 300 yars from the station.
Very peaceful and quiet area.
Great connections to Central London as well as surrounded by a beautiful nature and lots of shops and supermarkets.
Great area with tube, train, tram and bus links to South/Central London and good road links to surrounding counties.
It's a great place to live, easy access to all the major transport links into and out of London. There are some cool local pubs with live music, great Japanese, Korean and Lebanese restaurants and on Kingston road there are some great little cafés for lunch and Mediterranean food supplies. Abbey Mills is only a short walk away where there are great markets and food. You can relax by the river Wandle or head to Dale City farm. There is a great traditional Irish music session every week in the Kilkenny Tavern, watch out for when Hungry Grass are playing as its a cracking night out!
It's great because you are walking distance to Wimbledon centre,where all the shops, restaurants and bars are, as well as the mainland train station which not only has the district line, but also has overground trains to Waterloo and the South West plus the Croydon Tramlink. You also have the option of the Northern line in South Wimbledon and a choice of big supermarkets such as Sainsburys & M&S, and a big retail park across the road. There is also Abbey Mills on your doorstep and a choice of gyms.
Southfields is leafy, friendly and safe area, filled with a lot professionals as well as young couples. General feel is of a small village, similar but not as expensive as Wimbledon village. As you probably know it is on District line for tube and several buses including the night bus are serving this and surrounding areas. Few major banks, local shops like butcher, greengrocer etc. Quite a few restaurants and couple of very local but modernized pubs, three small supermarkets, post office, few hairdressers and many estate agents - all located in this small area full of charm. I have lived in area for approx 12 years and I have nothing but fantastic experience of area and people living there.
Often overlooked, Southfields locationally, and equally as a place to live, is worth giving serious thought to. Cheaper than the areas surrounding it, the centre has all the small amenities you could want and a very quick train ride to practically anywhere! In addition, the green leafy and quiet nature of Southfields makes southfields gives it longevity, that the otherwise 'hustle and bustle' surroundings do not offer - and are instead polluted, noisy and crime ridden.
Quite place, clean, very comfortable to live.
Souhtfields is a calm place not much trafic, not much noice, it has easy access to most essential services and a tube station for the rest
I love living in Wimbledon it has everything right at your doorstep.
Wimbledon has a Town Centre which is lively and where there is plenty to do, lots of shops, restaurants and pubs but you also have Wimbledon Village within walking distance and this is almost rural with a beautiful Common and pond. So you get the best of both worlds.
Wimbledon is varied - you have the village and common for a rural, posh and upmarket feel; then around the station for a more busy, shopping-oriented, later night bars feel; then around South Wimbledon which has cheaper shops, and is a little more run down (sorry!). Most definitely has excellent transport links, tons of fab restaurants, shops, pubs and bars (there's loads!). It is great for professionals, families young and old, but what you most need in Wimbledon to live in the best bits is money!!
If you know London, you'll know Wimbledon Village is a desirable area to live. It's not too busy, its a lovely area but central London is in easy reach.
I live 10 minutes walk from the tube and train station.
I moved to London from Norfolk three years ago, and wanted to move somewhere in London that didn't lose the safe, happy environment I'd been used to.
Wimbledon was the perfect find. It's so peaceful and has a real family atmosphere. There's plenty of things right on your doorstep - shopping mall, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, banks, cinemas and gym.
The commute into the city is simple, the Northern Line from South Wimbledon runs directly to Bank, or as an alternative there's a mainline train running straight to Waterloo from Wimbledon station.
I love that such a lovely peaceful place exists only 25 minutes away from the centre of London.
Wimbledon has everything you need - great transport links to Central London, if you need it (20 mins to Waterloo), a town centre with plenty of shops, departments stores, bars and restaurants. There is also Wimbledon Village, that really does have a village feel with quaint pubs, restaurants and shops. Then of course there is Wimbledon Common which is great in the summer for chilling out in the sun, surrounded by the many country style pubs. A great place to live if you're new to London.
I've lived here for over 20 years after moving to London from Yorkshire. It's a lovely place with everything you need; it has it's own shopping centre with more than enough bars, restaurants, clubs, and there's also the village if you want to go a bit more upmarket with the vast expanse of the common to enjoy. Central London is easily accessible (and at the end of the District Line you pretty much always get a seat!) but if you don't want to go the whole hog, it's just a short ride from Kingston with it's bigger shopping centre and the Thames. Close enough to the City but also not far from some beautiful countryside. It's also safe and clean.
Wimbledon is good for shopping (Centre Court) with a great choice of supermarkets. A short walk up the hill takes you into the beautiful village with its lovely atmosphere. The bucolic 40 hectare Wimbledon Common starts at the village and extends up into Putney. A great place, especially in London! There is also horesriding in the village, which is full of boutiques and a wonderful, independent bookshop. Lovely eating out. Excellent connections with District Line and overground in the town, Northern Line a 2o minute walk from the town, and buses to Putney, Richmond, Clapham Junction and Vauxhall.
Wimbledon is a lovely area full of everything you need, including great connections to Central London.
It has lots to offer but is never too busy or noisy, and has lots of green space and fab places to eat & drink.
Wimbledon Park is great for parks, pubs, eating out and access into Central London.
Leafy London suburb. Commute to Central London by tube in 30 minutes. Lots of shopping,restaurants cinemas and green areas.
The area is super safe, peaceful and close to all local amenities. Very decent people around. Impossible to be unhappy here.
