Your creative community

Putting roots down in this ever-ambitious locale means writing a new chapter in the area’s rich history.

Back in the 18th Century, the mills powered by the water of the River Wandle were used for the emerging textile industry at Merton Abbey, known for its silks and calico printing. Today Merton Abbey Mills is home to a new creative community, working together to form one of South West London’s real hidden gems. In the heart of this independent riverside quarter is a collection of arts and crafts shops, yoga studios, cafes, restaurants and riverside pubs with a firm focus on nurturing imagination and fostering independence.

“You might need to remind yourself that you’re still in London”

The village life

For those that know, Wimbledon has well-earned its reputation as one of London’s most picturesque and characterful corners, crafted by a close-knit community of those with their feet in the city but hearts in the country. Quietly confident, to join this entirely historical and yet ever-progressive local club is to build a life you never need to escape from.

Life a little bit greener

While it’s the lawns of Wimbledon’s namesake tennis club that conjure up inimitable thoughts of summertime greenery, it’s actually the great expanses of grassland, heath and woods at Wimbledon Common that offer not only a space to breathe but a place to come together.
