Southfields Guide

Your All In London guide to Southfields

Southfields was one of the last suburban areas to the south west of Central London to become densely populated. In fact, the area now known as Southfields was nothing more than an expanse of fields until the 19th century. It was the opening of the Wimbledon to Putney Bridge, in 1889, that led to the boom of this previously grassy region.

Now part of the London Borough of Wandsworth, Southfields is a mainly residential area populated by people who prefer to live at a slight distance from the hustle and bustle of Central London. There are several decent primary schools and parks in the area which also makes Southfields a popular place to live and visit for those with young families.
