Earlsfield: A Delightful London Neighbourhood, Discovered!

21 March 2022 / Area Guides

“Our clients love Earlsfield because you are in town, but it still feels like a village,” explains Simon Powley, Property Sales Manager at Stirling Ackroyd’s Earlsfield’s branch on Garratt Lane.

And it’s true. The larger adjacent neighbourhoods of Wimbledon or Clapham cover far larger areas, and because of that the property options there can range from ex-council to grand Victorian homes on expansive commons.

However, Earlsfield is different. This lesser known, cosy corner of London offers a magical mix of the attractive terraced Victorian and Edwardian homes with easy and open access parks and a great choice of outdoor spaces. The perfect place for those that love a stroll with small humans or canine friends.

There is something for everyone here. Good schools, great coffee, reliable transport routes to central London. Add to that, a real sense of London history, and you have a great place to call home.  


Earlsfield’s name comes from the Victorian manor that once stood on Allfarthing Lane. Sold to the LEarlsfield’s name comes from the Victorian manor that once stood on Allfarthing Lane. Sold to the London & South-Western Railway (1884), the previous owners insisted that the name be retained for the station. In 2012, the station had a £5.6 million revamp, the main entrance reconstructed, lifts installed, boosting accessibility and creating much needed step-free access.


Check out this 12-mile path along the River Wandle from Wandsworth to Croydon by bike. It’s an enjoyable way for cyclists of all levels who want some fresh air and scenic views on their journey!


Earlsfield has some wonderful primary and secondary schools to choose from. Check out some of the locally outstanding schools, and their catchment areas.


Garratt Lane connects Wandsworth High Street to Tooting Broadway – this 2.5 mile long road has a staggering 1085 street numbers in total! It passes through the neighbourhoods of Earlsfield and Summerstown, and before the 19th century development, it also led to the undeveloped fields of Wandsworth.

Located in Zone 3, this is the place to be if you are looking for great independent shops and restaurants. Shop ‘til you drop or grab lunch or knock-out brunch with friends – it’s all here. Afterwards, take a stroll in the nearby Wimbledon Common, or head to the riverside and enjoy the peace and quiet of the River Wandle.


Some of the city’s finest cafes, delis and restaurants are on Garrett Lane – a food destination with something for everyone. Check out our favourites here.
