Tooting Bec Common is one of the best places in South London for anyone looking to get a little exercise, enjoying a relaxing bike ride or simply just chill out in the summer’s sun.

The common is split into three or four main sections which are all easily accessible by path. There are a number of football pitches and wide green areas for those looking to play other games, while the common also has a number of tennis courts which can be rented by the hour.

Numerous refreshment stands will ensure that children are kept fed, watered and happy, while there are a number of outstanding pubs in the surrounding area to keep the grown-ups happy!

In the summertime, the common is also home to the Tooting Bec lido, a well-known outdoor pool that gets incredibly busy when the weather is hot but is always loads of fun! If you are in the South West area, Tooting Bec Common is a great place to spend a relaxed day out.

Martin - Having lived in London for over 10 years, Martin prides himself on his knowledge of the best places to spend a great night out….or at least, the best places to spend a great night out that sell alcohol. When he’s not reviewing London's most intriguing hotspots and hidden gems, he spends most of his time playing gigs around the city, so expect to see one of his shows promoted in the event calendar soon. Yeah, he has no shame.
