Wandsworth is a district of south London located about 7.5 kilometres from Charing Cross. The area began as a series of medieval villages and later morphed into a hub for immigrants in the 19th century. Now Wandsworth is known for smart houses, trendy cafes, as well as its many common areas and green spaces. The green haven of Clapham Common draws young people from all over the city who are eager to escape the pollution and traffic of the city. The River Wandle, for which the area is named, enters the Thames in Wandsworth and provides an idyllic setting.
