Family Life in South West London

Which is the best place in London for families? 
This is a question I get asked a lot. 

While I'd say most of London is child-friendly, 
one part of the capital is predominantly a family affair

With a whole area south of the river Thames 
being dubbed 'Nappy Valley', 
there are some good reasons 
South West London is family territory.

The Parks 
Some of London's finest parks can be found in South West London. 
In autumn take the children for deer spotting in Richmond Park
in winter go to Battersea Park's big slides,  
and in summer go splashing at Wimbledon Park's paddling pool 
or at the urban beach in Fulham's Bishop's Park

One thing is sure: in SW London you are spoilt for choice 
when it comes to having fun with the little ones. 

The Transport Links
Central London is easily accessible from South West London. 

The old, reliable District Line takes you directly 
to London's most central and child-friendly locations. 

Alight at South Kensington station for tons of knowledge 
at the Science and Natural History Museums, 
get off at Westminster to see Big Ben, the London Eye, 
and the sharks at the London Aquarium
or stop at Bayswater for heaps of fun at the Diana Memorial Playground.

The Schools 
South West London boroughs are known for their good state schools. 
In fact, the borough of Wandsworth is one of the top five 
best performing local authorities in the country. 

Before planning a move and looking up for properties, 
the outstanding schools' catchment area. 

The Family Life 
There are plenty of family friendly shops and restaurants 
in this part of London, 
perfect for a day out with the children. 

Our favourite ones are the independent coffee shops in Parsons Green, 
the cute boutiques in Wimbledon village, 
and the family friendly restaurants in Fulham.
