Ahead of moving to Wandsworth you should know a bit about the area first. Situated in the Borough of Wandsworth, it is southwest of Charing Cross and is one of the thirty-five major centres of Greater London. The land was owned by several different people and institutions such as St Wandrille’s Abbey. It has long been an area that has accepted migrants, especially in the 1590s when Dutch settlers came here, fleeing from persecution. The centre of the town was Young & Co’s Ram Brewery that produced beer for 425 years, between 1581 and 2006. Gas works became a major part of the city after what would be known as the Wandsworth and Putney Gaslight and Coke Company was constructed in 1834. Over the years it merged with other facilities and was eventually supplying gas for much of south London.
The riverfront that runs to Battersea Village and the West End is lined with apartments, bars and restaurants making it a great place to live and visit. Wandsworth Common has some of the priciest townhouses in all of London, so if you’re thinking of treating yourself then this is the place for you. The area also has many boutiques and restaurants including Chez Bruce. Old York Road, known locally as the “Tonsleys” has many Victorian style houses that are very popular and so can be quite expensive. Wandsworth High Street is the hub of entrainment and fun and is home to the recently refurbished Southside Shopping Centre, which contains a cinema and restaurants. King George’s Park is not far from here and features many ponds, cycle paths and sports facilities.
Wandsworth has been home to many famous residents including former Prime Minsters David Lloyd George and Tony Blair, actors Kevin Spacey, Keira Knighley, TV chef Ainsley Harriet, boxer Frank Bruno and literary greats Thomas Hardy, George Elliot and Daniel Defoe. So if you want to join in this pantheon of talent and celebrity call us now Man and Van and we’ll have you living in Wandsworth in no time.
