Despite being in London, Southfield's has a village feel, with friendly locals, an active community, independent shops, cafés and plenty of green space too. Plus there are good local schools and great transport links to the rest of the capital.
A little bit of history
Up until the late 19th Century, Southfields was literally that; fields. Then the railways arrived, bringing with them residential development and the Southfields we know today began to take shape.
Need to know
The main residential area in Southfields is affectionately known as 'The Grid'. It comprises two sets of interlocking parallel roads. The roads run from Replingham Road in the north, to Revelstoke Road in the south, and the streets run from Elsenham Street in the west, to Astonville Street with Merton Road to the east of Astonville being the border of 'The Grid'.
In Southfield's Village you'll find Replingham Road where quaint and characterful independent shops and cafés co-exist with popular high street chains.
For fresh produce and friendly service we recommend local gems, Southfield Grocers, Delicious Deli, Chanteroy, The Village Butcher and The Fish Pedlar.
