The borough of Sutton is part of South London includes other towns such as Carshalton and Wallington and is often thought of as being one of the better parts of London to live in. There are a number of high performing grammar schools in the borough including Wilson's and Sutton Grammar and the borough is consistently represented as being one of the best environmentally to live in as the environment is one of the Liberal Democrat council's main priorities. However there are downsides to living in Sutton as although many of the residents of the borough of Sutton are rich many are also poor and crime is fairly high in some areas and although the police force do ...

I have been a Suttonite for my whole life so I thought I'd write a review and detail some of the weird and wacky characters in Sutton as well as Sutton as a whole. However, I won't talk about the schools as I have no children! Sutton is located to the south east of London and is considered to be part of London. To get to London, the best way is to catch the fast train to Victoria which takes about 25 minutes. There are numerous buses that also go into London but they obviously take much longer. It is for this reason that many people have moved to Sutton. It is close enough to London to get you there easily but far enough for you to escape all the ... Read the complete review

I moved to Sutton 3 years ago and thought I would pen an opinion. I have listed the main subject headings important to any area and gone from there. ~~Brief History~~ Sutton dates back as far as year 727 and was initially called “south tun” or “south farm”.

At the end of the First World War, the major housing development took off and paved the way for the thriving community it is today. HG Wells once lived here. ~~Location~~ Sutton lies to the South West of London. A Sutton address will show you ... Read the complete review

If you were to arrive at Sutton station you would probably find yourself reeling at the moment at the state of the place. It's been devestated, and with good reason. The guts have been ripped out of it as Connex revitalise what was a fairly dingy little station into a 21st Century showcase for rail transportation. I am sure it will look fairly nice when completed, but right now, it makes things pretty difficult, and when the lack of comfort is added to Connex South Central and their inability to run an adequate train service, being trapped on the station for any period of time is no fun at all! That aside, things look up from here. Or downhill, rather, as ... Read the complete review
