Balham- a village feel in South London

Compared to neighbouring Tooting, Balham has a sense of quiet and also one of a strong community. Most of the houses and gardens are very well kept. We don’t seem to have any problems with street crime and the streets are well looked after with very little litter.

Transport

Balham having a tube station is a huge convenience for locals and visitors. There are a fair number of bus routes serving us but the adjustment to the main road to include a lane is a contentious issue as it has heavily restricted parking- even the post office is now unable to accept parcels as their vans can not park outside. There are some Boris Bikes, but certainly not an abundance of them

Community

Sistova Road, for some reason unknown to me, does not use wheelie bins but leaves bins and rubbish bags in the street. This undoubtedly attracts vermin and looks unsightly. The surrounding streets are mostly inhabited by families (given the quality of the local schools) who own

Amenities

Balham has a good mix of chain restaurants and independent ones. Pizza Express, Franco Manca, Exhibit, L’Osteria, Trap Kitchen, Meghan’s and Nandos all sit very comfortably with one another and are invariably busy and with a good atmosphere. Although South London has a name for being a little on the rougher side. Balham feels very safe. Acquisitive crimes such as burglaries and car thefts have seen a rise in the last year or two but it still feels safe. I’ve certainly walked from the tube station at all hours and haven’t felt at risk. We’re fairly well served by buses but most people rely on the tube. Also, in Balham, there are streets with fewer than average parking restrictions. Lately, there has been a lot of pedestrianisation of the main roads. Whilst this has helped local businesses to operate (and also maintain a sense of a thriving community), it has aggrieved a number of drivers,. We’re lucky to be served by two good sized supermarkets, with a handful of delicatessens, butchers and the like

I love Balham because there’s so much to offer

I love Balham because there’s so much to offer ( chain and independent restaurants of all cuisines, multiple supermarkets, green space etc) and because it just feels so relaxed and happy. People are always out socialising but the more residential streets are pretty quiet for London and you won’t find someone throwing up on your door step. It’s a great place for animals as you have the choice of three Commons available and most restaurants welcome pets. There are a few schools around here too and loads of families have put down roots here. The streets are well lit and I’ve always felt safe here.

Transport

Balham has the Northern line and train services so you can easily get to the City and West End as well as Fulham/Chelsea and further afield via Clapham Junction in particular. Bus routes from here are also pretty good but sadly we don’t have Santander bikes! Commuting is pretty ideal from here, never really had any issues apart from the typical crowds!

Community

Our street is quiet in terms of residents (mostly families and young people). There are cars going by obviously but never too fast (speed bumps etc), we have one street between us and the train tracks which are audible but only as a low rumble.

Amenities

Balham has everything you need + could want: supermarkets include Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, coop, M&S towards Clapham South; then there are all the shops like Oliver Bonas and TK Maxx which just make shopping in Balham that little bit more interesting and means you can find almost anything you might need without having to travel far. Obviously being on the Northern line is great for commuters, and the train gets you to Clapham Junction and Victoria very quickly so you get to be out of the hustle and bustle of the city but it doesn’t take long to get in, likewise if you want to escape London it’s easy. I’d say Hildreth St is a hot spot for restaurants (vegan included), weekend brunch, and there’s a plant market there daily! If you’re looking for green space then Tooting Bec Common is just down the road from The Bedford (famous for its Banana Cabaret)! If you don’t fancy that then Clapham Common is a 15/20 min walk away and Wandsworth Common is close too! The only thing I think Balham is missing is a Cinema to be honest, but that could even take away from the charm of Balham. It’s got a really amazing, chilled, young vibe. Wouldn’t live anywhere else!

The atmosphere is great, everyone is friendly and very positive.

The area is suitable for children and pets as it is a family based area. The atmosphere is great, everyone is friendly and very positive.

Transport

The best thing about living in Balham is probably the transport links. We have a good amount of buses and there is a train and underground station very close to each other.

Community

My street definitely gets quite busy on the weekends as it’s very close to lots of food shops. There’s a nursery just down the road and a dentist so you do see lots of people walking round.

Amenities

Area is decent, lots of food shops situated very locally, lots of take aways too which is very handy when ordering in. Loads of bars on the high street too but I do prefer going to different areas.
