South West London stretches from Westminster to Kingston-upon-Thames in the west and to Croydon and Sutton in the south. Local authorities within the region include such culturally diverse areas as Lambeth, Wandsorth, Merton and Fulham.
The Prime Minister's house at 10 Downing Street has a SW postcode, as do the Queen's residence at Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.
The area boasts the Tate Britain art gallery, the Victoria and Albert and Natural History museums and the swish, well-heeled lifestyle of South Kensington. Further out, you'll find Kew Gardens and the regal splendour of Hampton Court, with its iconic maze.
South West London is well-served by bus, tube and overground train services and also by the Croydon tramlink. South West London contains Wimbledon, renowned for its tennis tournament and its fictional wombles, always on litter patrol, out on the common.
