Wandsworth is the name of both a London borough containing areas like Battersea, Putney and Tooting, and a hub in its own right, Wandsworth Town. Historically its centre has been dominated by the Young’s Brewery and the myriad pubs surrounding it.
The industrial revolution transformed Wandsworth in the 17th century. It is definitely somewhere the Peaky Blinders would make a beeline to if they lived in London in 2019! The area has recently seen profound regeneration and a series of large schemes have given Wandsworth a much-needed refresh. Popular with families and packed with great schools, it’s one of London’s most affluent and attractive inner suburbs.
