South London has been having something of an artsy rebirth for the past few years.

It began with Brixton being gentrified out of all recognition and then widespread to Peckham and Camberwell interjection to an continuous stream of proprietor striking pattern students.

Street art, kayaks and a city called Celebration — the Florida you’ve substantially never heard

But we’ve now reached the peak of this south side love-in.

Because Tooting – that peculiar area at the bottom of the Northern Line that up until now had been created off as social Siberia – has just been named one of the world’s top 10 ‘coolest neighbourhoods’.

Yep, the Broadway and Bec are up there on Lonely Planet’s list with Botafogo in Rio de Janeiro, Sunset Park in New York and Business Bay in Dubai.

So, what is it that’s so good about SW17?

Well, Lonely Planet says it’s ‘quirky bars’, ‘eclectic market’ and ‘multiculturalism and originality’ are what’s won it a place on the list, which is done up of the many ‘up-and-coming’ areas in the world.

They’re places they suggest people visiting now before they get too popular.
