Living in Tooting area information and guide

Tooting area overview

Tooting in South west London is a bit of a rough diamond and certainly isn't quite as posh as it's neighbours like Wimbledon or Balham. It's not the most expensive are of south west London nor is it the cheapest. there is a wide spectrum of rental choices from flats above shops to very fancy new build developments on the Wimbledon side. However the real price contour is determined by the two Northern Line stations Tooting Bec and Tooting broadway which get residents to the centre of town in no time. There are two fantastic pubs in Tooting, the Kings Head - a proper south London boozer and The Selkirk a fancier real ale and cocktail joint.
