Wallington is a small suburb in Greater London in the borough of Sutton just outside of Croydon. It has easy access into central London with direct rail links into London Bridge and Victoria. It is also well served by bus and coach connections and is only an hour from Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
Wallington has a good variety of restaurants and pubs and has recently experienced a boom with more mainstream establishments beginning to pop up due to the development of some luxury flats opposite the railway station. There is a lovely farmers market held on the second Saturday of each month.
There are also a few parks within the surrounding areas offering Wallington some greenery. Beddington Park boasts idyllic meadowland has a branch of the River Wandle running through it, Grove Park overlooks the Carshalton Ponds, and Carshalton Park has landscaped grounds and an ornamental lake.
Most of the large old country houses were demolished in the 1920s and Wallington also suffered bomb damage during the Second World War so most of Wallington's housing is modern with flats, terraces, and detacheds all on offer. Wallington North contains the main shopping area and offers plenty of family homes for under £300,000 however Wallington South is arguably more easy on the eye with homes in quiet, leafy avenues such as Woodcote and Dower Avenues and Onslow Gardens which fetch over £400,000.
