Why move to Wallington?
Half an hour from London, the pretty town of Wallington is the place to live if you’re looking for a top-notch education for your kids. A whopping three of Sutton’s grammar schools are located in Wallington, including Wilson’s School, which is the most successful grammar school in Britain according to The Good Schools Guide. Fourth on the same list is also Wallington County Grammar, and Sutton is a top-performing borough for education in the country overall.
Aside from a sterling education, Wallington offers quiet, leafy streets, alongside beautiful avenues and private roads, whilst still only being less than 11 miles from the center of London. Ideal for those wishing to escape big city life at the weekends, but still commute easily to work on weekdays, Wallington has a lot to offer.
For those concerned with amenities and things to do, Wallington is a peaceful community with lots of suburban activities on offer such as a farmers’ market held on the second Saturday of each month, the not-for-profit Sutton Community Farm, a small independent cinema, a modern health centre and a public library with an outside terrace café for you to while away the hours. If this sounds too tame for your tastes, Sutton is only 10 minutes away, and Croydon less than 15 minutes by car.
Wallington may sound unassuming, but it has an interesting and storied history as a centre for lavender oil production up until the First World War, not to mention the town’s four gold post boxes commemorating local resident David Weir’s four gold medals at the 2012 Summer Paralympics.
Featuring top class education, stunning vistas and extensive parks such as Beddington Park and Grange Gardens, Wallington’s lakes, ponds, paths and ornamental bridges make it an idyllic spot for those looking for a peaceful and quiet break from the hustle and bustle of London.
