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.’
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.
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.
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.
I really enjoy being so close to the city, but being in a smaller trendy community.
I really enjoy being so close to the city, but being in a smaller trendy community. There is so much to explore nearby with two gorgeous parks, and so many lovely local cafes and bakeries. I have never felt unsafe.
The Victoria line is very close and has the most reliable tube service of any I have experienced. It gets you north of the river very fast. There is also the northern line, which I don’t enjoy as much as it is always packed in the mornings and is very hot. There is the overground too, which doesn’t come as often but gets you where you need to go. There are a large range of buses that go from both Brixton and Clapham, with decent timetables. There is a night bus that runs between Brixton and Peckham, which I use often.
I don’t have a car so have not noticed any off street parking, I don’t know what the availability is or if you need permits. It’s very quiet traffic wise from the street, but there is the train tracks running on the other side which I found very noisy at first, but have gotten used to. There is a range of young family’s, and renters in this area. It feels very safe.
There is an extensive range of local bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. In both Brixton and Clapham. Brockwell park and Clapham common are a short walk away, and are lovely green spaces. I can’t think of anything that is missing, it has everything you could need, and the transport links to get to Oxford Circus for shopping are super fast and easy.
it's at times very quiet and more families have moved to houses around the area so it has become more family friendly over time.
It's overall a safe place like any other place you will see people that may make it seem like a strange area but, we rarely have bad things happening in the area it's at times very quiet and more families have moved to houses around the area so it has become more family friendly over time.
I personally think it's quite in terms of the tube and buses around the area they come every 3 to 5 mins it gives you enough time to get to a place if you are running late. I haven't seen big issues to consider appart from sometimes it can be quite busy so it's difficult to get inside the transport in the mornings, rush hour time however, after 9 it slowly goes back to normality.
I do feel at times it doesn't feel safe at night it seems there's a few more gangs at certain times sometimes ramdom people can approach you and make you uncomfortable because you just don't know what they want and how they will react as most seemed under the influence of alcohol or even drugs.
The area I live is very diverse in terms of shops you can find a variety of different types of restaurant and cafe shops which are cosy and comfortable to just have a friendly catch up with a freind. The area is quite vibrant regardless of the time of day people come from other places to try the bars and clubs near places such at Brixton Clapham ect. It's a placed filled with hidden suprises you just never know what you will find or even try! I do think there could be more things for young people to do in the future as is evident more young people like this area.
Clapham old town in particular is a lovely area, some great shops and a relaxed atmosphere.

Good thing is that there is a mix between everything- shops (local and franchise) and parks for leisure and having a good time.
