We are both working professionals, I was a BA stewardess for some time and have fortunately travelled to many wonderful places. Having left to have our son who is now 11, I now work at a private boys secondary school and previously as an Event Manager in Central London, so I have a good knowledge of where to go, what to see, where to be seen and can hopefully provide you with a good overall guide of London entertainment including hotels, bars and restaurants, places of interest. My partner is self employed in the music and property industries. We have both lived in South West London for some considerable time and are huge fans of this area, although not from here initially. Battersea is a great place for families or couples who want to enjoy the beauty of Clapham & Wandsworth Common, Battersea Park and the River Thames.

As well as the "Boris bikes" across the road which you rent and can see London by cycling, a great route is to follow the tow path along the Thames.
