The selection of shops is endless, from brand supermarkets to local market stalls, Balham has everything to offer

The area is just exceptional. Whether you have children or not, whether you are a pet lover or not, there's always place for you in Balham

Transport

Buses are plenty both daily and night, ensuring quick links to hotspots in central London. Thank God for the Northern line, reliable and fast (available 24 hours on weekends) - but commuters will love the trains that go through the same station and take to Victoria, London Bridge and the south of England.

Community

My street is quiet, perfect for professionals and families alike. There's not much traffic so parking is more or less always available. Bin collection is on Monday so make sure your bags are out by Sunday evening!

Amenities

The selection of shops is endless, from brand supermarkets to local market stalls, Balham has everything to offer. Nightlife is often overshadowed by neighbouring Clapham but locals love their gems and these places never fail the community.

Best area in SW London!

Just that I should have moved here sooner. Definitely suitable for children and pets, park is just around the corner and lots of servoces available.

Transport

Tube, rail, night and day buses to central London. No bike sharing but that's pretty much all that's missing!

Community

Quiet area, safe at night, no traffic, but not much nightlife and mostly for families so not many bars and pubs

Amenities

Plenty of shops, little independent cafes and restaurants. 24h supermarket, transport super close night and day

It’s great for children, excellent park and good childcare.

Transport

Excellent: British rail to victoria and to Clapham junction, northern line, cycle vias, Parking requires residents permits.

Community

I live in Bedford hill, which is a main road. We have triple glazing so noise is not a problem. Garbage collection, including recycling is ok. The neighbourhood used to be more diverse, with artists and non white British people, with a strong Ghanaian component, still present in food shops and a clothes shop. Recent gentrification led to a large component of long haired slim blond yummy mummies.

Amenities

Excellent supermarkets, delicatessen, varied restaurants, cafés, farmEr markets, Second hand charities shops, boutiques, good primary schools, bakeries. Immense choice of branch places. Lacks: bookshops.
