Wandsworth is the name of both a town and a London borough, but in this case, we're focusing on the town. One of the things it's best-known for is the Ram Brewery, which operated in the centre of Wandsworth until 2006, and has ever since been replaced with a microbrewery. The town's Southside shopping centre (previously the Wandsworth Arndale Centre) sits on the site once occupied by Wandsworth Greyhound Stadium.

The name 'Wandsworth' derives from the river Wandle which flows all the way from Beddington before joining the Thames just north east of Wandsworth Town station.
