I’d say the atmosphere can be quite mixed but for the most part pretty up-market and trendy.

I’d say the atmosphere can be quite mixed but for the most part pretty up-market and trendy. Lots of gyms and yoga centres, independent cafes, salons, gastropubs. I think it’s a good area for children and pets probably as there are nice big parks though like all of London it can be dangerous in areas.

Transport

Transport links are excellent and actually the reason we moved here. There are bus stops all over the place and I live only about a ten minute walk from Clapham Junction station which services many different train lines. Although I don’t have a tube station within walking distance. Clapham Junction is on the Overground line so you can access the underground network from there, or you can easily travel to Waterloo or Victoria much quicker than the tube would take you. The trains go so frequently that I can leave my house and be on the Southbank within around half an hour. The biggest problems with transport are rush hour at Clapham Junction. I was very worried before moving here, but it’s alright most days, although like everywhere in London it has it’s bad days. It does get very busy most days on rush hour and you may have to wait for one train to go and get on the next one in the mornings perhaps to get to Central London, but as they go so frequently (every few minutes) this usually isn’t a big issue. Despite it getting very busy at Clapham Junction station I would say the benefits of the transport links outweigh the negatives and I’d still say transport is excellent.

Community

My street is mostly couples or families, I would be surprised if we had many students. We haven’t had to deal with any anti-social behaviour on our street since moving here 18 months ago. Bin collections are weekly and there isn’t really ever rubbish in the street, I see street cleaners pretty frequently. We get noise from planes overhead but don’t hear much traffic. We don’t have a car so I can’t really comment on parking, but when we have had visitors they haven’t ever had an issue parking on the road or even near our house.

Amenities

I think the type best catered to by my local area would maybe be “foodies”, as there is such a broad range of delicatessens, bakeries, cafes, zero-waste refill food stores, gastropubs and so on, both chains and independent. I’d say perhaps where we are lacking is in more independent shops, we have some of course but most shops are chains. In terms of open spaces I can also get out to the gorgeous Battersea Park or to Wandsworth Common, both within walking distance of my flat.

This area is my dream place and wouldn't leave at any cost

The area is suitable for children in the streets, but it can be busy and noisy on the main high road with cars and buses. This area is my dream place and wouldn't leave at any cost. If you can aford to live here, then it would be the best move you would ever make.

Transport

london transport is very good. Many tube stations and buses, for local stops or to go straight to inner London. Its easy to catch a black cab and local bus stops are everywhere.

Community

There are many shops and pubs in the area so it can get quite busy especially at peak times and evenings. The local folks are friendly. It's not quite as modern as the inner part of the city, most houses are victorian in design and can be expensive to rent or buy - there is a premium to live in this part of London. The area is very clean and tidy with street bins and during the evening the street lights are quite bright which helps us to feel safe and secure.

Amenities

Shopping is fantastic in this area whether it be buying a phone, a pair of shoes or your weekly food shop. They're all a stone throw away from each other. Parks and outdoor space is limited, but the common is only a 5 minute walk away where you can relax after a good shop.

The atmosphere is very quiet but there is also some crime which makes the area unpleasant.

Although there is a small park it is not very entertaining so I would say that it is not suitable for children or pets. The atmosphere is very quiet but there is also some crime which makes the area unpleasant.

Transport

There are cycle routes and a decent range of transports links such as busses and a train station not too far away. During rush hour it can be pretty busy and takes a while to get down the roads. Other than that there are no other problems.

Community

There are not pets allowed in the area that I live in although some people have then anyways. There are also not many children. Parking it’s not great and often have a walk from available parking to accommodation. Bin collection is also not great and is left to pile up quite a bit before it is cleaned.

Amenities

The quality of local shops are not too good and are often out of stock, but there are multiple restaurants that are always fully with friendly people.
