This week, presenter Alistair Appleton goes to Kennington - a still under-valued and pretty part of London. There are a lot of Georgian streets there, which give the area charm, together with independent shops and restaurants, and the Imperial War museum nearby.

Alistair looks at Cleaver Square, one of London’s prettiest, where French bowls is played on the sunny gravel square in summer and young Londoners enjoy sitting out. Alistair also meets James Macnamara, who took three years to convert his old school hall into the modern home of his dreams.

Alison Cork picks up design ideas from the conversion and shows you where to get similar things at rock-bottom prices. She gets no-nonsense steel for the work surfaces cut by a supplier - and saves hundreds of pounds.

Last, for London gardeners, Andy Sturgeon meets Spitalfields architect Chris Dyson, who has made a vertical garden in his courtyard, space-saving and planet-saving - and low-maintenance into the bargain.


Alistair Appleton has a wealth of property knowledge from his established television career. He will be showing us the best locations to live in the capital and opening the doors to some of London’s most inspirational homes.

Alison Cork: following the success of Alison’s weekly ‘Really useful ideas & bargains’ column in the Evening Standard, Alison teaches us how we can all get homeware for less.

Andy Sturgeon is a Chelsea RHS Gold medal winner and gardening writer for the Guardian newspaper. He is the author of two best-selling books and lectures internationally on garden design.
