Beautiful period homes, acres of parkland and riverside property, and a cosmopolitan atmosphere make South West London one of the city’s most desirable areas. From the iconic cultural attractions of South Kensington, including the Natural History Museum, to Richmond Park, with its herds of wild deer, South West London appeals to all kinds of people. While students will cluster around the region’s universities, there are areas along this pretty stretch of the river that hold a special appeal for families. Those seeking to live in friendly, green communities without sacrificing good transport links into Central London will find that any of South West London’s new builds, mansion blocks, and stucco houses will suit their needs. Those further afield, past the end of the District Line, will find that it’s not always necessary to venture into the centre for shopping or entertainment — the leisure offerings of the area can certainly compete with the offerings of the West End.
