“Fabulous area to live in for young and old alike.”
“Area is one of the safest I have ever lived in.”
I wouldn’t call it trendy or particularly up market near the station but further down its upmarket.
The area is suitable for children and pets but larger families tend to live on the roads off Northcote road as it’s a bit more rural. I love the area but I’m in my 20s so haven’t got a family of my own yet. I wouldn’t call it trendy or particularly up market near the station but further down its upmarket. Some shops need regeneration and they need to stop school kids hanging around on St. John’s road intimidating people and dropping litter. Other than that I really enjoy living here.
Clapham junction station is fantastic, it gets incredibly busy at rush hour but can get you to pretty much any tube line in 10 minutes or less. I used to live near a tube but don’t miss it at all. Lots of buses too. The trains are fairly clean as expected but not sparkling. Trains are reliable.
Bin collection for me is on a Wednesday and they do recycling and normal every week. I live very near the station but never hear the trains or Clapham grand. My street are mainly owners I believe, mixture of couples and families. There is some antisocial behaviour especially at the end of the road by Waitrose and sometimes youths will play loud music and smoke weed sitting outside peoples houses but not that often. There’s been a lot of bicycle theft and there are a lot of litterbugs.
The range of shops is good and St John’s road and Northcote road have pretty much everything you could want although more and more independents are closing down sadly and being replaced with cafes or very niche food places (like a hot chocolate shop). It makes it interesting but I can’t see them lasting. Wandsworth common and Clapham Common are popular areas and the M&S and Waitrose are people’s go to shops for top ups but big shops could be at Lidl or Asda. Debenhams used to be popular but has recently shut down and we aren’t sure what will be replacing it. TK Maxx also very popular. Lovely bars and pubs down Northcote road and Battersea rise and good restaurants too (mix of independent and chains).
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.
Area is one of the safest I have ever lived in.

Cycle routes are fine, tube can be crowded but is reliable, overground is my preferred choice to navigate this tremendous city.
My street has a mix of younger and older, I think therefore also a mix of renters and remnants, there is no anti social behaviour and traffic noise is OK.
Nice mix of amenities, bars and open spaces offer lots of fun, would love to see more Japanese cuisine to get my gyōza fix.
This area is my dream place and wouldn't leave at any cost
