There is great disparity between certain parts.

Likes: Central location and ease of access to other areas. Everything required on a daily basis is close to hand. High Street has a reasonably buzzing, young, trendy vibe especially at night. Area generally accommodates most age ranges. Dislikes: The overall feeling and look of the area is that it is in desperate need of a major regeneration programme. There is great disparity between certain parts. Areas that have a high concentration of renters are dirty, run down, neglected, look and feel like inner city ghettos. Other parts where private ownership is high are cleaner, better maintained and look ‘posh.’

Transport

Good variety and selection of transport links including buses, tubes, overground stations and cycle routes. Generally all are reasonably reliable, however rush hour brings great overcrowding especially where tube service is concerned. Clapham Common station which is heavily used, cannot cope with normal average rush hour capacity always leading to queues extending right outside the station.

Community

Good aspects: Fairly central location making it easy to access other areas. Good location for work availability. Good transport links and good variety of local amenities. Clapham Common offers a pleasant open space with some leisure activities. Bad aspects: Area is too densely populated often resulting in overall poor quality of life. Outside areas are either neglected or poorly maintained. Anti social behaviour is common and insufficiently challenged. Excessive noise pollution. Parking is problematic due to closeness to high street and Clapham Common. Residents are mainly families and renters.

Amenities

A mixed variety of local shops on a buzzing high street, including many good quality independent traders. These predominantly include pubs, bars, restaurants, eateries. There are also chemists, post office, stationery shop, supermarkets, coffee shops, carpet shop, hardware, DIY shops, library and gyms. Clapham Common itself is an extremely popular open space used for organised events as well as by locals. There is a lack of affordable clothes shops in this area.

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.

Transport

A massive park, really well maintained, with great features and facilities. Great access from the tube network, surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants. Easily accessible to central London in less than 15 minutes

busy streets and during the bank holiday full of people near enough in the hundreds, creating more litter which an eyesore during the evening

Amenities

Clapham Common is a busy place, with main roads all around it. Having said that it is a large open green space area in the heart of London, that is there for everyone’s enjoyment. But be warned it is also close to the main road which always has traffic
