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 is a very trendy area, there’s so much to offer being here!

Clapham is a very trendy area, there’s so much to offer being here! If you want to enjoy a day of shopping or a nice meal or drink out, Clapham Junction is great! If you want to enjoy the atmosphere of a busy market then Brixton is great! If you want to enjoy a nice park or swim there’s so many parks and swimming centres around and most are walking distance, of course there is Battersea Park not far too! This area is great for youngsters and families! A little something for everyone!

Transport

Transport in Clapham is great, obviously there is bus and tube, with 3 tube stations in this area, Clapham North, Clapham Common and Clapham South, so it’s sure that one will be near by! You also have Brixton not far at all and areas such as Clapham Junction, Streatham, Tooting and Balham are all so close to, just a short bus ride away. Truly a great area for transport! With Clapham Junction Train Station so close the options are so wide!

Community

Most houses/ property on this street/area have parking on the property. I’d say that Kings Avenue is a fairly busy road during rush hour timings so can be a little noisy but no traffic jams or anything like that.

Amenities

Great area for restaurants and shops, lots of independent and high street favourites all just a short walk away for a bus ride away! This area offers low cost options such as Iceland & Lidl whilst still offering shops as Waitrose and Sainsbury’s. There’s even a food market not far in Brixton! Lots of variety and choice here!

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

Community

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
