Home > Wandsworth


In 1965 the London boroughs were replaced with larger boroughs and the London borough of Wandsworth now encompasses Balham, Battersea, Tooting and Putney, amongst other areas.

The Wandsworth skyline is notable for Battersea Power Station and the borough certainly played its part in the Industrial revolution. Prior to industrialisation the area was an expanse of farmland, and some of its place names (e.g. Lavender Hill) reflect this.
Transport is good in the borough London Victoria station is only a three minute journey from Clapham Junction the UKs busiest railway station.

Battersea plays host to a zoo, world famous dogs home and a variety of parks. It has also been home to New Covent Garden Market (a wholesale fruit and vegetable market) since 1974.
