Trains to Wandsworth Common

Wandsworth Common is a major commuter station in London's Zone 3, taking local south Londoners north to Victoria and London Bridge. The station dates back to 1856 although the current building was constructed in 1869 when the station was relocated. Trains pull into the platforms a stone's throw from the common, which you can reach via a footbridge from the station. Records of the common are found as far back as the 11th century. Originally, cutting trees, grazing animals and digging gravel were all allowed on the green, but today it has a somewhat more relaxed vibe, offering 175 acres of tennis courts, lakes and children's playgrounds. Lovers of fauna and flora should make a beeline for the part of the common known as The Scope. Named after a giant telescope that was constructed there in 1852 - since removed - it's a popular place for bird watchers, and is used as an environmental education centre for local schools.
