About the area
Wandsworth is a picturesque borough located on the banks of the River Thames in the heart of South London. The towering chimneys of Battersea Power Station dominate the skyline. Battersea Park is the borough's major area of green space as well as the scene of the annual free fireworks show. In the park, there is also Serene Lake, Buddhist Peace Pagoda, and the zoo for children. Putney, in the west of the borough, is the starting point for the world famous Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. Explore the river from Putney Pier, taking a boat trip west to Kew Gardens or east to Westminster. For braver visitors, Wandsworth has one of the UK's tallest bungee jumping-off points at 300 ft, from Observation Tower in Adrenaline Village.
As all the boroughs in the heart of the British capital, Wandsworth can boast of all kinds of fashionable stores, restaurants, bars, and cafes. Here, people enjoy the rich life to the fullest.
On the south bank, you will find London South Bank University, formerly known as South Bank Polytechnic. That is why students like to rent flats in this area.
Wandsworth is the birthplace of many outstanding personalities such as the famous politician David Lloyd George and the former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
