“Clapham - you can do better”
Fabulous area to live in for young and old alike.
I love living in this area. It's pretty clean and quiet and properties are generally well maintained. Schools are good, the open spaces accessible and the charm of the local shopping streets together with the transport links is what brings people here. Many people keep dogs, even the mess is minimal although occasional owners are careless with their little black sacks. The commons do attract dog walkers however there is a limit to how many dogs can be walked at any one time.
Transport links are excellent, with Clapham Junction a short bus ride or within walking distance and the Northern Line close by. Buses are frequent and with a range of destinations, it is easy to get about, however they are often busy . Santander cycle docking stations are in the area. Traffic is a pain however, sometimes it is necessary for us to use our cars. Many residents choose to cycle, there are many official cycle routes.
Our street is a combination of rentals and owners, with families and young professionals mainly. Although there is a broad age range of residents. Parking is by permit Monday to Friday although it can still be tricky to find a parking spot near our homes. The bin collection service is exceptional with operatives extremely helpful and friendly. The street lighting is good. Residents do know each other and this can only lead to improved security. Anti social behaviour is minimal .
The range and quality of local shops is amazing, as with the bars and restaurants. Northcote Road is a great place to shop , with smaller shops including independent businesses and chains and a street market at the end of the week and at weekends. Webbs Rd is also great to visit with specialist shops including, lingerie, sound systems, gallery to name but a few. There are also hairdressers and beauty therapists, more than one choice of each. In both streets the quality of coffee in the independent cafes is exceptional. This is a very friendly, family orientated area. The green spaces are vast and very well used by families and those seeking physical activity. Both Clapham and Wandsworth Commons have active groups of local volunteers who help with the upkeep of both spaces.
The schools are great. You could not ask for more restaurant or delivery variety that is of good quality.
The area is great for families. The parks are great for kids. Its generally a very safe area. The schools are great. You could not ask for more restaurant or delivery variety that is of good quality.
Transport links are amazing, the Northern line is on your doorstep, only 15mins to central London. Mainline train is also on your doorstep with links to central london in 7mins. You also have great links to towns outside of london for lovely day trips, for example Brighton or Eastbourne.
Parking availability can be bad but it is much better since the all day parking charges came into place. Bin collections are great. Traffic is virtually nonexistant on this road. The occupants of the street are mostly families but theres growing houseshares of young partying business folk who can be a nuisance but generally okay
Local high street is great, lots of restaurants, bars and cafes. Shops are best for babies. Great charity shops. Excellent for fresh produce. Parks are large and freat for kids. Transport links are excellent, tube and mainline train on your doorstep.
Clapham - you can do better
Young, laddish party town
Connections are fine, not something I have an issue with, I tend to avoid public transport when I can, but when I do get it it really is not so bad and trains are frequent
At weekends it can be loud and noisey and people feel like its OK to leave their thrash behind and leave the streets a state. the direct neighbours are fine its more the passing drinking crowd.
You can find everything you need, but there are too many lower end take-aways and stores and not enough bespoke boutiques and cocktail bars, its all a bit laddish and beer focused.
I’d say it’s a very good area to live, lots to do around here so you will never be bored.

It is an upmarket area but in combines the natural beauty of the Common with socially friendly neighbourhood.
