It's green and pleasant in south west London

London is known as the 'Big Smoke' but the notion that it's a choked city with little fresh air and green space is misplaced, comment south west London lettings agents Winkworth. In fact, a survey commissioned by the Greater London Authority in 2013 revealed 700 roof gardens in central London alone. There's a growing trend in the capital to provide residents with more outside space, with some clever lateral (and vertical) thinking yielding some stunning results. This move towards creating more greenery is being backed by Mayor Boris Johnson, who has set a target of increasing green space in London by at least 5% by 2030. Many of those looking at flats to rent in south west London realise that the capital city is bursting with flora and fauna, and their choice of an apartment or flat is usually complemented by either a terrace, balcony or communal garden, as well as access to some traditional and more unorthodox open spaces in the local vicinity. Those thinking of flats to rent in south west London have some exciting venues to explore to get their fix of fresh air and vitamin D. Probably the most well-known is Kew Gardens in Richmond, where you can while away the hours wandering round the grounds and exploring the glasshouses. For something a little different, No 32 The Old Town in Clapham has a spacious roof terrace from where you can quench your thirst, share plates of food and enjoy the views of south west London's rooftops. Along the same lines is Broadway House on Fulham Road in SW6, where two rooftop terraces, a rooftop bar, an outdoor cinema and a cigar terrace provide ample opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors on a very social scale. For open space in the more conventional sense, you can't go wrong with Battersea Park. With views across the Thames, an art gallery and a zoo, it's the perfect place to unwind with a picnic or go for a run. Another favourite among south west London dwellers is Clapham Common. A number of cafés, sporting facilities, two playgrounds and a skate park are dotted about the 220 acres but it's the programme of open air events that really get residents excited. If you are looking at flats to rent in south west London, and would like advice and the current availability, please contact Winkworth today.
