Colliers Wood is a thriving suburban centre, attracting those in search of the space to spread out, but who want to retain a close connection to central London.
King’s Cross St Pancras
Everything is already in place to enjoy a contemporary lifestyle in delightful surroundings. A twist of the past is ever-present as the River Wandle gently courses between the sites of 17th and 18th century mill buildings that originally brought the area to prominence. One of the most significant, Merton Abbey Mills, is now a colourful artisan food and crafts market, with a traditional pub, summer theatre programme and venue for the annual Abbeyfest music event.
Colliers Wood has two extensive retail hubs – the Tandem Centre and Priory Retail Park – together with a large supermarket complex. Home to High Street brands like Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Next and Mothercare, the area also hosts an array of independent stores, from Moose Cycles to Honey Boo hair design. There are also plenty of places to stay fit and active, including Virgin Active, Nuffield Health & Fitness, YourZone45 and Wimbledon Leisure Centre, with its large swimming pool and spa facilities.
Affectionately known as “Collywood” by residents, there are excellent local schools and a new library is being built on the High Street. The busy cafes, pubs and restaurants dotted around Colliers Wood make it a destination in its own right, plus the Northern Line station is only metres from your front door – offering easy connections into and out of London.
