Tooting Bec Tenants Enjoy Travel Links to London
Here’s just some of the highlights Tooting can boast of:
Underground Stations Link Tooting to London, West and Central
Central London ie London Bridge is a mere 18 minutes train journey from the underground line Tooting Bec on the Northern Line. Tooting Broadway is the other underground station in the area. Both will take you into the West End and London City via stations such as Waterloo, Kings Cross St Pancras and Tottenham Court Road. Better still, get on at Tooting and you’re practically guaranteed a seat.
If you plan on travelling via train (rather than underground) then Tooting also has its own station. You’ll get trains Sutton and St Albans or Clapham Junction, Victoria and London Bridge, from the next stop down at Balham.

Curry Corridor – Places to Eat in Tooting
There’s a reason the path between the two underground stations in Tooting is called Curry Corridor. The area just has THE best south Asian eateries this side of London and beyond. There’s also a curry shop offering 15 different types of Naan – now that’s impressive. Spice Village, the Pakistani restaurant and take-away on Tooting Road, prepares food traditionally via a tandoori oven or over hot coals. One of the most popular curry houses, and lauded by London Mayor Sadiq Khan is Lahore Kahari.
Head to the two markets in the area – Broadway Market and Tooting Market and you’ll find plenty of variety, from wraps and ramen to sushi and street food. For some good old British fayre there’s plenty of gastro and traditional pubs in the area too, such as the 200-year-old Castle and The Antelope.
For beer try the markets and the Craft Beer Shop, while cocktails are beautifully served at The Goldfinch.
Tooting Nightlife – Live Music and Comedy Entertainment
The Tooting Tram and Social is the place to go for live gigs. This former tram shed has plenty of space (on two floors) and lots of comfy sofas to collapse on when you’ve had one too many (dances, that it). There’s an Open Mic night, Comedy performances and, of course, dancing until the wee small hours.
If you like a pub quiz then head for the Wheatsheaf pub, where you’ll also find live music and comedy nights.
Green Areas, Parks, Picnics and Parakeets
You’ll find plenty of fresh air and greenery at Tooting Bec Common – a mere 10-minute walk from the station of the same name. In the park you can walk, cycle, picnic, play tennis and even swim – in the beautiful Art Deco Grade II-listed 90-metres long Lido. Or, just sit back and relax with an ice cream or coffee from the park’s café and listen out for the drilling of woodpeckers in spring or see if you can spot one of the parakeets who reside there.
Safety on the streets of Tooting Bec
