Streatham Area Guide, SW16

What is Streatham like to live in?

  • Streatham is located in South-West London. The area centres around one extremely long road, called Streatham High Road. At the north end of the road, is Streatham Hill, which borders Brixton. At the south end of the road is the beautiful, yet small Streatham Common and it’s Rookery garden.
  • The whole area offers fantastic transport links into Central London in the form of buses or trains from 3 different train stations – Streatham Hill, Streatham Station or Streatham Common.
  • Streatham has many pubs, but the best of them are located around the Streatham Common area.
  • SW16 is a great place to live for easy access to local amenities and is 1 train stop (4 mins) away from the desirable area of Balham.
  • Prices in Streatham are much cheaper than Balham, Clapham, Battersea or Brixton, due to the lack of tube, but they’re not nearly as cheap as other South London suburbs can be, due to the convenience of the location.
  • The community gets together at the annual Kite Day, Streatham Food Festival and also the fireworks display in November.
  • Streatham has loads to offer in terms of entertainment – there is the local Odeon cinema, Streatham go-karting and also the Streatham ice-rink which has reopened in July 2014 following a 3 year closure.
