Living in Wandsworth

wandsworth area guide

Wandsworth is a quiet South West London residential area yet very well-located - only a 10 minute train ride into Victoria/Waterloo via Clapham Junction. The area is well known for its green open space, excellent schools and Victorian/Edwardian family houses with large gardens. At the heart of Wandsworth lies Bellevue Village with its parade of specialist shops and excellent restaurants on Bellevue Road.

  • Wandsworth takes its name from the River Wandle, which enters the Thames at Wandsworth.
  • Huguenots settled in Wandsworth in the 17th & 18th Centuries attracted by its cloth mills on the Wandle and developed a hat industry for which Wandsworth was once famous.
  • The Ram Brewery in Wandsworth, dating back to 1581.

Architecture and property:

North Wandsworth is popular for its large, semi-detached houses allowing quick access across the bridge to Fulham and Chelsea.  The “Toast Rack” is arguably one of Wandsworth’s prized locations. It is a grid of wide tree lined streets adjacent to Wandsworth Common with substantial Victorian semi-detached/detached houses in attractive red-brick.

The Magdalen Estate offers Edwardian properties with unusually large gardens on quiet tree lined roads on the door step of Wandsworth Common. The area “Between the Commons,” as its name suggests falls between Wandsworth and Clapham Commons and consists of largely terraced Victorian properties of three or four bedrooms
