There are mainline trains from Wandsworth Common Station; these go to Clapham Junction, Battersea and Victoria in one direction and Balham, Streatham Common, Norbury, Wimbledon and Croydon in the other.

Bellevue Road


One of the highlights of a trip to Wandsworth Common is visiting Bellevue Road, a row of shops opposite the green space. On Bellevue Road you'll find famous restaurants such as Chez Bruce, fashionable clothes boutiques, toy shops, plus estate agents, general stores and a pharmacy.

One famous local shop was the Lucky Parrot, an eclectic mix of gifts and greetings cards - plus a real parrot and lots of character. The Lucky Parrot had to close recently in sad circumstances, but we're glad to see a new enterprise, "What O'Clock" has opened up in its place - we wish the new owners all the best in their new venture!
