Situated in South West London, Clapham is one of the city’s best known historic “villages”. The area is popular with families and young professionals as it benefits from plenty of greenery and great transport links.
Clapham Common is a main attraction in the area and is within walking distance. It provides locals and visitors with open green spaces, ponds, cafes, playgrounds and more. In the summer months, concerts are played at the traditional bandstand. Even Benjamin Franklin carried out experiments on the pond here.
The numerous transport links offer a quick and easy way to travel to central London as well as other tourist attractions outside of the city. The city-centre can be reached in as little as 15 minutes.
In the vicinity are Hildreth Street, Abbeville Village and Clapham Old Town, which provide a wide selection of both trendy and traditional restaurants, cafes, pubs, shops, market stalls and more.
We especially recommend visiting Venn Street Market for its various street food stalls, Clapham Old Town for al-fresco dining and upmarket amenities, the quaint Clapham Picture House to catch a movie and the vibrant Northcote Road.
Clapham offers you the opportunity to have a local, village-like experience, away from the hordes of tourists.- Read less
