Welcome to Earlsfield

An up-and-coming London suburb, Earlsfield offers medium sized Victorian terraced houses.  The affordability of the area compared to its neighbours such as Clapham, Wandsworth, Battersea and Putney, is drawing young families and many exciting businesses.  New bars, delis and restaurants are regularly opening around Earlsfield Station, setting the area up for further growth.
  • Up-and-coming
  • Variety of businesses moving to the area
  • Great parks
  • High street names in Southside Shopping Centre
  • Classic London suburb
  • Entertainment & nightlife

    A number of bars and pubs are opening in Earlsfield, providing a selection of trendy evening destinations.  Bar 366, conveniently located on Garratt Lane, has regular drink offers and incorporates more unusual ingredients in its popular cocktails.  Bars in Earlsfield are also likely to be able to provide local beers and ales from nearby microbreweries such as By The Horns.  For evening entertainment, check out Tara Arts: an intimate fringe theatre showing a variety of live shows and cross-cultural theatre.

    Underneath the arches of Earlsfield Railway Station can be found The Earlsfield, a bar with four separate dining and drinking areas based in a disused workshop.  The original architecture has been complimented by the new decoration: copper pendant lights and button-upholstered vinyl booths provide a fashionable location for an evening meal or drink.

  • Parks & recreation

    The River Wandle, which once fed to the Young’s brewery in Wandsworth, flows roughly parallel to Garratt Lane throughout the area.  There are a number of beautiful parks including Wandsworth Common, Garratt Green, Garratt Park and King George’s Park which includes a lake, sports pitches and a children’s play area.

    For parents, the play area and sports activities available at “It’s A Kids Thing” will be of interest.  The group is open to ages up to 9 and won an award from LBC Radio.  A café overlooking the play area allows parents to relax whilst keeping an eye on their children..

  • Restaurants & shopping

    With the growth of the area, Earlsfield is attracting an ever-increasing number of organic delis, gastro pubs, bars and shops.  The Southside Shopping Centre on Garratt Lane boasts a number of quality high-street retailers and 14 screen cinema.  There are more shops and restaurants on the High Street between Garratt Lane, Allfarthing Lane and Burntwood Lane.

    Best place for steak

    Roxie’s has attracted attention for the beautiful steak it provides at affordable prices.  Despite the fierce competition in London, Roxie’s is often hailed as having the best steak, accompanied by a strong wine list.  This small chain is now also open in Clapham, Fulham and Putney.

  • Schools

    Earlsfield’s primary education is particularly strong. 

    Notable Primary Schools in Earlsfield include Beatrix Potter School, Earlsfield School and Swaffield Primary School with Garratt Park School, Ernest Bevin College and Burntwood Primary School providing secondary education.

  • Transport & travel

    Earlsfield Overground into Clapham Junction provides access into the city via Waterloo or Victoria.  A train journey to Waterloo can take as little as 13 minutes.  There are two main tube stations:

    Southfields – District Line

    Wimbledon Park – District Line

    There are also good bus routes to the West End and out toward Wimbledon.

Becoming a popular area to live, Earlsfield has everything from great parks to the best steak house around!
