Living here suits us as we work close by and had access to the facilities - shops, gym, restaurants - that we need.

Living here suits us as we work close by and had access to the facilities - shops, gym, restaurants - that we need. However if you would like a vibrant nightlife and a wide range of bars and restaurants and shops this area May not tick those boxes. The street could benefit from some regeneration as there quite a lot of takeaways and ship fronts that look quite shabby.

Transport

There is good overland train access to Waterloo and Victoria from Queenstown Road and Battersea Park Stations. 452 and 137 buses are regular and the nearest tube is Sloane Square - about a 15 to 30 minute bus journey (depending on time of day travelling). At rush hour it can be busy to get the bus to Sloane Square and walking can be quicker.

Community

The accommodation is mainly flats and the age range is mostly mid 20s to late 30s - a mix of owners and renters. The street can be quite noisy, especially at rush hour but if property is double glazed this isn’t an issue. Parking is relatively limited compared to the amount of households.

Amenities

Queenstown Road has close access to groceries such as a Sainsbury’s Local and Tesco Express, as well as a couple of smaller corner shops, one of which has a post office counter. There are services such as pharmacies, dry cleaning, nail bars and hair dressers, however no clothes shops or specialist shops such as a butcher or bakery. There are a couple of restaurants and pubs, but a better range can be found in nearby Clapham Common and Northcote Road. The extensive and beautiful Battersea Park is also just a 15 minute walk.

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.

A lot of traffic noise

Like - closeness to certain places Dislike - everything else

Transport

Transport links are great though the buses are always busy in the morning and you have to wait for a few, sometimes they don't open the doors. Could be better in that sense. A lot of noise from traffic on Wandsworth road which is a very negative side.

Community

A lot of traffic noise, kids playing outside all the time without adult supervision, not very good behaviour on my block.

Amenities

There are a lot of shops around which is quite good, not that many bars around Wandsworth Road Station but Clapham isn't that far.
