Wandsworth, is a sought after residential borough of London situated on the south bank of the River Thames and takes its name from the River Wandle. The former wharf area of the river-front is now lined with new apartment blocks, with several bars and restaurants.
The area, mostly comprising Victorian terrace houses and some Victorian mansions, is renowned for its green open spaces, notably Wandsworth Common, King George’s Park and further east, Clapham Common. The area attracts both young professionals and families looking to enjoy the wealth of amenities found on the streets between the commons. The area boasts a wide selection of notable schools both independent and state funded.
The area is served by a comprehensive network of transport links. Mainline rail services are found at Wandsworth Town, Wandsworth Common and Clapham Junction, providing access to both London Victoria and Waterloo. Underground rail services are from Clapham South (Northern Line), Southfields and East Putney (District Line). Thames Riverboat services are from both Riverside Quarter and Plantation Wharf piers.
