Introduction to Tooting
Tooting is like the little brother or sister to the larger Streatham and Balham with one long high street riddled with lots of food and retail shops, giving it a very upbeat and constant vibe. It’s very in demand with professionals for its easy access to the City, and ample greenspaces allowing for exercise or social meets. Tooting has lots to offer families as well, with excellent schools and leisure facilities. It is also slightly cheaper than its larger Balham counterpart, meaning you can get more for your money. Famous for its Lido which is the largest of its kind in the UK you’re never short of something to do in Tooting!
