Why do you love Wandsworth?

Wandsworth is one big melting pot of people, cultures sights and sounds. You have the beautiful parks (one of the greenest boroughs in the UK), the Thames river flowing through, along with the usual high street hustle and bustle. As a creative person, it just helps being a stone’s throw away from all possible sources of inspiration. To top it all, I can simply take a bus ride to the heart of London. Wandsworth has been my home for over a decade now so I might be hopelessly biased. But then, what’s not to love?!
