This area has many good restaurants, bars and cafes to enjoy, particularly along Battersea Park Road. You are only a 2 minute walk to Battersea Park which is a stunning 200 acre green space, to be enjoyed by all ages. There are many landscaped gardens with plants and foliage from around the world, a boating lake, a bowling green and a children’s playground.
Stroll across one of the three bridges nearby and you’ll be in the upmarket area of Chelsea and on the picturesque Chelsea Embankment. Why not take a stroll through the park and to the famous King’s Road in Chelsea (less than half an hour's walk). This long street is well-known for its boutique shops, trendy bars and fine dining restaurants, and for those interested in art the Saatchi Gallery is at the eastern end of this long road, near Sloane Square. Around Sloane Square you’ll find several luxury brands such as Tiffany & Co. and Hugo Boss, as well as more boutique outlets and cafes.
South Kensington for Natural History, Victoria & Albert and Science Museums is only 10 minutes by taxi, and Kensington High Street close by offers many more restaurants and bars.
The property is only a 5 minute walk to Battersea Park train station, where you can easily catch connections to all areas of the city. You can be at Victoria in 5 minutes and from there you could hop on one of three main tube lines – the Circle, District and Victoria lines which can take you all over the city very quickly. From here you can be at Oxford Street for shopping in 5 minutes, and Notting Hill for the Portobello Road markets in 12 minutes. There are also many buses which run nearby which can take you directly to High Street Kensington, Knightsbridge, Belgravia, Notting Hill, Hyde Park and Oxford Street.
We should make guests aware that the noise of traffic can be heard when in the garden (from the road behind the house, although it is buffered by another neighbouring garden and does not back on to the road).
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 ‘Le 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.
