“A lot of traffic noise”
Good links into central london, many different shops, bars and restaurants available.
My area overall is a great area! There are a lot to do for families and children. Good links into central london, many different shops, bars and restaurants available.
There are a wide range of different forms of transport in my area. There are buses that go to all different areas and all different parts of London. There are taxis or cabs that are always available aswell for private travel if someone does not wish to go onto public transport especially at the moment with everything that is happening at the moment. Rental bikes and rental electric scooters are also available and easily accessible for any member of the public. There are two train stations that are quite near eachother both going to towards central London or further out of London if travelling in the opposite direction. More forms of transport run until Quite late at night and most buses run twenty four hours a day. Most public transport is kept well cleaned and is checked regularly, although some forms of transport can get quite busy and packed during rush hour times, they are quite regular services available.
As most people who live in London would probably agree the city is never really quiet, even at night. Most nights you can still hear trains or police or ambulance sirens going on through out the night. During the day although there is a big and popular local park and many different local forms of transports the streets are quite quiet and calm. The parking is Decent there are always streets that you can park for free at certain times and other areas you can pay to park your card during the day or over night too. The local residents will often get a parking permit sent to them in which they can park one car for free outside their property. Looking at most of the people I have spoken to I would say the most common would be people Who are renting, many home owners in my area are then renting out their property to others as it is such a great direct link to central London. I would say majority of people living around my area would be classed as families or couples, I don’t see a lot of students renting accommodation around here.
They are many different types of bars and restaurants in my area, with a wide range of choices. Big Bars with outside areas such as balconies, pubs with outdoor areas like pub gardens. Some are also child friendly and provide toys and activities for children to be able To keep children amused, some examples of this would be board games for inside or for outside there are play equipment like children’s play houses, giant connect four, giant Lego or Jenga pieces. There are also quite a few restaurants that have outdoor spaces too and nice gardens that you are able to sit and eat in.
There are families that have lived here for generations which gives it a community feel.
This area has something for everyone and I would recommend it to anyone
There is a good range of transport links to take you into or out of town. Battersea Park and Queenstown Road stations provide trains straight into Victoria and Waterloo and there are a range of buses that take you into town. The tube is coming to Nine Elms in Battersea and there is also the station at Clapham Common. Battersea is also littered with Santander Cycle points which are extremely useful
The population of Battersea is divers which is one of its attractions. There are families that have lived here for generations which gives it a community feel. There is are a good mix of home owners particularly on the very beautiful Shaftsbury Estate. We have to live with being under the flight path and have the trains running through the area but it is a small price to pay
Having lived in Battersea for the past 30 years the quality and quantity of restaurants has increased considerably as has the range of cuisines. There are loads of pubs now ranging from the typical local to gastro pubs, providing a range of beers wines and food. Clapham Common and Battersea Park are fantastic assets for the area and great places to spend time whether it is visiting the zoo in Battersea Park or playing tennis or just chilling out in the open spaces of the common. Transport links are great and it is close enough in to walk if you so choose. Great place to live or visit
A lot of traffic noise
Like - closeness to certain places Dislike - everything else
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.
A lot of traffic noise, kids playing outside all the time without adult supervision, not very good behaviour on my block.
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.
Excellent transport links, buses, tube and trains!
