Press Release: Local area Walking Tours arrive in South West London this summer

Fri 04 Jun 2010

London estate agent Marsh & Parsons is launching a series of walking tours this July to help people discover more about their local area. The tours, which will cover the areas of Battersea, Balham and Clapham, are downloadable from the Marsh & Parsons website and will be fun and informative for families, house-hunters wanting to get to know an area better or simply those interested in where they live.

Each tour will take around one hour and will include a variety of facts and information, ranging from the history of the area to top attractions. The tours will point out interesting landmarks and where famous figures lived, as well as the location of useful amenities such as cinemas and good restaurants. The tours will also take in local parks.

A free gift will be available at the local Marsh & Parsons office for all those taking part, and Marsh & Parsons have also linked up with some local cafs to offer participants a complimentary cup of tea and sweet treat along the route.* A star prize of a picnic for ten in the local park complete with waiter, food, blankets and a gazebo is also on offer for those correctly answering questions along the way and handing in their answers at the nearest Marsh & Parsons branch to be entered into a draw.

Interesting Fact: Did you know that Du Cane Court in Balham is the largest block of apartments in Europe with 676 flats altogether, and that scenes from Agatha Christies Poirot were filmed there?

Peter Rollings, Managing Director of Marsh & Parsons, said: "At Marsh & Parsons we pride ourselves on our local knowledge and, in producing these tours, we want to show the best these areas have to offer. Battersea, Clapham and Balham are big hits with families and young people in particular and we hope these tours will offer a revealing insight and a huge amount of fun both for families enjoying the summer holidays and for those who dont know much about the area they live - or intend to live."

The tours will be available online to download from the Marsh & Parsons website from 1 to 31 July 2010.

*The Balham tour will go to Bertie & Boo's on Balham High Road, the Clapham tour will go to The Pavement in Clapham Old Town and the Battersea tour will go to Gail's on Northcote Road.
