I absolutely LOVE Tooting (and yes, I am biased!). It’s changed a lot from the place it was when I was a kid, although the spirit has remained the same. It has always been a place for families, it’s the kind of place where neighbours look out for each other
Eating and Drinking
Tooting’s growing number of pubs, restaurants and cafes is impressive. There is something for everyone. A special mention to Pinch Café also known as my HQ! Try the ‘Chuk Special’ latte!
The Great Outdoors
The Commons are less than 10 minutes from Tooting Bec station, but transport you to a tranquil oasis of greenery and wildlife. Great for a picnic, cycle or sitting with friends as well as a few laps at the Lido
Splash out at Tooting Bec Lido
A Grade II-listed art deco classic and England’s largest freshwater swimming pool, Tooting Bec Lido is a fantastic spot to have a dip and has even had Hollywood actor Brad Pitt swimming in its refreshing waters.
Did you know?
Totterdown Fields was the first ‘garden estate’ built by London County Council in 1911. It was designated a Conservation Area in 1978 and still predominantly consists of 2 bed cottages.
