Area Description: "Wandsworth is centred around the large Common, a public park similar to Clapham Common, and the river front towards Battersea is a former wharf area that now hosts apartment blocks, several bars and restaurants. Set back from the river towards Wandsworth Town train station is Old York Road, a little street with restaurants and shops which used to be the former centre of old Wandsworth. This spreads to an area of grander semi-detached and detached houses which is often desired by city workers, lawyers and other professionals because they retain their Victorian character and are very spacious - ideal for families with children of varying ages.
Another of Wandsworth's most historic and impressive buildings is the Royal Victoria Patriotic Building, which sits amongst the common grounds off Trinity Road. It was originally built to house orphan girls during the Crimean War but now contains flats, a theatre school and a high-end restaurant called Ã¢â‚¬ËœLe Gothique.'
For shopping and entertainment there is the Southside centre which houses a Waitrose, a gym and many other big brand shops. Behind this is King George's Park which follows the River Wandle upstream towards Earlsfield and further south to Wimbledon. It is home to picturesque ponds, tennis courts, football pitches and cycle paths.
Neighbouring Putney's high street has many nice pubs and restaurants and even hosts a farmer's market at the weekend. Along the river front near Putney Bridge there are some pubs offering more upmarket dining such as The Boathouse, The Star & Garter and the Half Moon Pub. This is also the starting location for the historic, annual Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, which started in 1829 and now takes place every year around Easter."
