WandsworthThe London Borough of Wandsworth, set in the heart of south London on the banks of the Thames, is only a short distance from central London. Wandsworth is a picturesque borough with Battersea Power Station's towering chimneys dominating the skyline. Battersea Park is the borough’s major area of green space and the scene of an annual free fireworks spectacular. The park also contains a picturesque boating lake, Buddhist Peace Pagoda and children's zoo.

Putney, in the west of the borough, is the starting point for the world famous Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. Explore the river in both directions from Putney Pier and take a boat trips up river to Kew Gardens or down river to Westminster. For entertainment try Jongleurs, the well-known alternative comedy venue which has in the past offered its stage to such famous British artists as Lenny Henry and Ben Elton. For the braver visitor, Wandsworth is also home to the UK's tallest bungee jump at 300 ft, from Observation Tower, situated in Adrenaline Village.
