Music Shops in Wandsworth:
There are only a few options in Wandsworth when it comes to music shops and guitar shops, however, here are a couple that I have found very useful over the years.
Northcote Music Shop is a long-standing shop that offers a wide variety of instruments & a good selection of sheet music and accessories. The staff at this place are always very friendly and will help you with anything you need. You can find them on 155C Northcote Rd, Battersea, London SW11 6QB.
If you are looking for a shop that specialises in guitars only then I would recommend Guitar Classics on 38 Webb's Rd SW, London SW11 6SF. This is a great small shop that specialises in a wide range of guitars so whether you are a beginner or have something particular in mind they should be able to help you out.
Music Venues in Wandsworth:
Wandworth isn't always the first place you think of when thinking about the music scene but Wandsworth has a great local music scene with a few venues/pubs that are worth checking out. Here are some of my favourites.
One f the most obvious options would be The 606 Club who specialise in Jazz music. They also serve food as well as serving the area as a Jazz Club. If Jazz is your thing then make sure to check them out.
If you are looking for something a bit more varied then I would recommend Hideaway. Hideaway offers a wide range of music from blues to soul and even stand up comedy. They are especially busy on the weekends but generally have something on every night.
