The Stuff We Can't Fit In Somewhere Else
  • The now famous David Gray has been going into the Mayfair snooker hall for years now, it must be that famous (now moved) table number 1 that has done it for him! Good luck Gray! Not forgetting he's mum that always supports him and is always there!
  • Apparently, a recent survey showed Tooting to be the postal district in London with the highest proportion of single householders.
  • some good bars ,good food ,but needs some good shops and no more 1 shops!!and go to the market!!
  • Whats Happening to the Horse and Groom ?? Anyone know ?
  • Tooting's on the up. If you were too snobby to move here because you wanted Clapham 10 years ago, then HA! - you're a twat! ;)
  • Tooting was a fashionable name in 1960s London. Sadly those days are long long gone. It is now a pretty filthy backwater with increasing problems of urban decay. A last resort for the deperate or a place for the new and naive to London.
  • Try the Italian barbers, Pino and Sergio, by Tooting Bec tube for a chat and haircut.
  • Great snooker club at Mayfair
  • Lived in Tooting, went away, then realised it felt like home. Not perhaps immediately appealing, but its safer than huge swathes of London, has green bits, and good travel connections.
  • Tooting Bec is a fab place to live. There are lots of friendly shop owners up Trinity Road. Check out Derek and David at Premier Cru, the local Offie - which has a great selection of booze. Tooting Bec is a pretty old place - it's been mentioned in the Domesday book. There was a French Benedictine priory here from about 1086 until it's dissolution by King Henry V. There are lots of gorgeous shops along Bellevue Road, which overlooks Wandworth Common such as The Lucky Parrot, which is stuffed with lots of yummy thing, and Kelly Ward antiques, which always has a good selection of wooden cupboards and armoires.
