Very suitable for pets, children so so as the noise is bad and there are a very social events that happen regularly.
It’s a very trendy area. A mix of people and animals alike. Very suitable for pets, children so so as the noise is bad and there are a very social events that happen regularly. I imagine it would be difficult with a new born.
Clapham Common is great as you have Clapham South, Common and Northtube stations with busses regularly in and out. Lavender Hill slightly misses an accessible tube station. You babe Clapham Junction railway station or you would have to walk to Clapham Common or Vauxhall. Both doable but a little further than most normal travel journeys. The bus system is great and there are at least 4 busses that give me access to where I need to get to for my job. Easy to locate and regular so I never need to worry too much with any commute. Sometimes the bus schedule can be a little off and it feels like you either have 3 of the same bus or you are waiting a good 12 mins for 1 bus but overall very happy with what is available.
It’s very noisy. Initially when I moved in, I didn’t expect it to be this noisy. Regular traffic noise as well as party noise and noise from the restaurant and bars. There is a definitely a mix of home owners and renters but I’d say the majority are renters. Age range varies to be honest from students to the retired. I would say, it’s not ideal if you don’t like noise as it took me a while to adjust to hearing noise regularly and now I sleep in earplugs so i can get a decent nights sleep. Great location, great peoples, just a little noisy!
Lots of new businesses opening along Lavender Hill which are amazing. Qualify bakeries, cafes, restaurants and general shops for amenities. The area is like a little community especially in Cravens Mews where I live. The residents and all the business owners look out for each other and it’s very much a community feel. Probably the only thing missing are retail shops but it’s not a huge loss for the area. Clapham Common is always packed but it’s not necessarily the best. I would also expect some retail shops along Clapham high street. It’s popular enough to create great revenue for any business that opens.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Excellent transport links, buses, tube and trains!
