Wandsworth Bridge Road is one of the main arterial roads coming in to south west London and is designated a ‘neighbourhood parade’ by Hammersmith and Fulham planners. There is the predictable smattering of estate agents and convenience stores, but this high street is thriving, providing bespoke products and personal services for homes and health and beauty.
Only two retail units out of the 9 vacant units in Wandsworth Bridge Road are ready to move in to.

Wandsworth Bridge Road is at times an impossibly busy road bringing vehicles in from the South over Wandsworth Bridge in to Fulham and Chelsea and the West End. There are up to 50,000 vehicle movements in a single day and a steady stream of people walking up to Fulham Broadway tube and children being walked to school. Once a busy local high street before the supermarkets arrived Wandsworth Bridge Road still has a London renowned Butcher in Randalls, established for over 30 years as well as a Sainsbury’s Local, Freshco and a 24/7 Krystals Express.
Over the last 20 years the pine shops of the 1960’s and 70’s have become showrooms and outlets for home improvements, tiles, radiators, timber floors, fabrics, lighting, bespoke upholsterers and carpets and beds -33% of the retail outlets overall and this in itself becomes a draw for related interior products.
The road is also well served by 16 restaurants and cafes to attract residents on their way up to Fulham Broadway tube or parents taking children to school and nurseries or just comfort food after a hard days work ..but you have to have the right offering.
Topps Tiles, Pietra Wood and Stone and Porcelenosa, kitchen showrooms Neptune, John Hungerford and Shaker Kitchens. Fabric can be found at Ian Mankin https://www.ianmankin.co.uk/ and French linens at Pret a Vivre.
Ann May and Daughter with their lovely eclectic French mix of furniture and mirrors is still going strong, dramatic lighting at Hector Finch and more traditional fittings at Tindle.
Personal grooming back in the 1950’s was a weekly trip to the public baths – not for swimming! Quite literally you took your towel and a bar of soap with you and paid for a bath.
The building shown (left) is the 1960’s replacement (now demolished to make way for Sainsbury’s local) as most people had their own bathrooms by the mid 1960’s it provided instead a laundrette and library.
Personal grooming is well provided for now in the several nail bars, three mail grooming shops, a hairdresser and a few beauticians.
Go Gay Cleaners replaced by a flower shop in about 2009 but there are still three dry cleaners.
Once served by The Eel and Pie Shop that closed in the late 1980’s, restaurants now include;
Joe’s Brasserie http://www.brinkleys.com/joes-... still going strong after 30 years
Greedy Buddha http://www.thegreedybuddha.com...
