Clapham Common/Old Town is brilliantly connected with buses, tubes and the overground all there.

The area is a real mix. There are lots of students and sporty types giving the Common a sense of liveliness and life, but there are also plenty of families and older people. The high street can feel a bit like a strip on a Greek island if there's been a big rugby match or it's a sunny bank holiday, but because most of the bars that cater for younger people are concentrated, the quieter street and pubs of the old town still feel calm. I've always felt safe in the area and spent a few years living here as a single women. There are always enough people around that I've never felt threatened or frightened, even when walking home late at night (though I would always stick to busier roads and never cut across the common).

Transport

Clapham Common/Old Town is brilliantly connected with buses, tubes and the overground all there. I work in Victoria and love being able to get the overground to work from Battersea Park - much nicer than the sweaty tube). If I'm feeling energetic I'll walk and it only takes about 45 minutes to cross the river at Chelsea Bridge and cut through Pimlico. It's a short walk, (or a very speedy bus) down to Clapham Junction for day trips out of town to the South. If you do need to take the tube into work, it can get quite busy a peak times at Clapham Common. There's sometimes a queue outside the station but it does move pretty quickly. It can be a bit more pleasant to get a bus or walk to Stockwell, where it's much easier to get on a train as so many people are switching lines there. It's a god-send on the weekend though. Especially with the night tube. From TCR down to Clapham Common only takes about 15 minutes.

Community

My street is Victorian terraced houses. We don't really know our neighbours but they seem friendly whenever we have. I think the road is a mix of renters and owners. There's occasionally a bit of noise from someone having a garden party, but never anything too loud and never anything regularly. All the normal Lambeth council collections, recycling one week and waste the next with food being taken every week.

Amenities

Clapham Old Town is a great pocket of London to live in. It's a great area for restaurants, cafes and bars for all age groups. Towards the Clapham North end of the High St there are quite a few lively venues that are good for cocktails and dancing...I've lived in the area for a while, (and am possibly too old for some of those places) so now I'm more excited about the brilliant food options nearer to the Common, particularly along the Pavement and South Side. There's the Michelin starred Trinity and The Dairy for real foodies and I love No 32 and Brickwood for long brunches. It's also a calmer vibe and it's so nice being near lots of open space. The Common is the perfect size for a 5K lap if you're a runner and beautiful Battersea Park is on the doorstep with more variety including the boating lake, some stunning ornamental gardens and the zoo. Shopping wise, it's perfect for food and there's a brilliant butcher M.Moen and Sons and several whole food shops, plus the little Waitrose and a big Sainsbury's. For clothes, I'd probably head into town which takes about 15/20 mins on the Northern Line, but there's an Oliver Bonas and a Joy , which are great for gifts.

There’s a lovely atmosphere with very minimal disturbances and it generally feels very safe

- There’s a lovely atmosphere with very minimal disturbances and it generally feels very safe - everything you need is within walking distance - the northern line tube is extremely busy in peak times and there can be up to a 20 minute wait to get on a train in the mornings - lots of children live in the area as there are some good schools - the majority of people seem to be graduates/young professionals or families with school aged children - good access to the rest of London

Transport

The northern line runs through the main area which is ideal for commuting or spending time out and about in central London. The night tube also operates. The London overground is easily accessible too as well as national rail services to Surrey and Kent. Waterloo is around 15 minutes away on the overground. Buses run directly to Kensington, Marble Arch, Peckham, Waterloo and Shoreditch every 5 minutes in the day and every 15 minutes through the night.

Community

Parking availability is usually good as most people have a driveway however on street parking is pay and display during peak times. Very minimal traffic noise generally the only noise is delivery drivers on mopeds usually. Bin collection is weekly for both waste and recycling. Very good community spirit with an annual street party and bbq. Mostly families.

Amenities

Lots of local independent shops and cafes. Two high streets to choose from within 20 minute walk of one another. The common is a great public spaces to enjoy and never overly crowded due to its size. Battersea park is also within walking distance and is a great park for children too. There’s plenty of lively bars for the weekends and excellent pubs around too. Some lovely restaurants with lots if independent European restaurants and several chains too.

I absolutely love this area the old town is like a village in a city!

The atmosphere is trendy and young in the evening but very family orientated in the day with lots of families around. I absolutely love this area the old town is like a village in a city!

Transport

Traffic can be heavy in the area however I do not drive and can get everywhere from my house with bus services running across london I am also a 10 minute walk to Clapham Common tune for the northern line and can get to queenstown or Clapham junction easily . Clapham junction in particular is a great station to live near as it a large station with great travel links.

Community

The bin situation is not ideal as we cannot have black bins in the toad and have to put rubbish out in bags which the foxes often get which makes a mess of the road. The council do a good job of keeping our streets clean but this is a pain. Parking is also awkward for guests as you generally need a permit.

Amenities

Fantastic Waitrose Sainsbury’s for mainstream however we also have Gail’s bakery and a butchers along with lots of others that do take outs alongside their menus. No 32 is a great spot with a lovely terrace there are also a few pubs with outdoor space and most places have seating outside which makes for a lovely atmosphere.
