Great links from Collier's Wood

Nestled in the deep depths of south-west London, and just on the edge of leafy Surrey, Colliers Wood sits on the Northern Line tube and is just half an hour from the capital's central hub - Charing Cross.

A bustling high street filled with independent shops and restaurants, alongside some well established retailers, are really what defines this suburban commuter town.

Creatitivity and tasty treats

Seated on the banks of the River Wandle on the borders of South Wimbledon, Merton Abbey Mills is a cultural and culinary hive of activity and flavours.

If it was closer to London's East End it would be a hipster's paradise. But the down-to-earth locals and esteemed craftspeople keep the mills completely grounded, with each of the rooms proving to be a treasure trove of creativity and character - throwing in some vinyl and dominoes nights for good measure.
