Early hours

Lovely Earlsfield, located in a quiet corner of Wandsworth, is one of South West London's hidden gems. The perfect place to make some noise.

Running parallel to the River Wandle, Garratt Lane is the heart of Earlsfield. It has all the usual suspects; Tesco, Sainsbury's, indie cafes, cocktail bars and restaurants (Il Girasole and The Thai Grocer are said to rate highly). 

Locally, there are more Victorian pubs than you can shake a drum stick at — try The Jolly Gardeners, on the corner of Lydden Rd, or The Wandle of Earlsfield.

For those seeing a change of scenery, King George's Park and Southfields have wide-open grassy spaces to enjoy, plus there's a skatepark and BMX track.
