I wouldn’t call it trendy or particularly up market near the station but further down its upmarket.

The area is suitable for children and pets but larger families tend to live on the roads off Northcote road as it’s a bit more rural. I love the area but I’m in my 20s so haven’t got a family of my own yet. I wouldn’t call it trendy or particularly up market near the station but further down its upmarket. Some shops need regeneration and they need to stop school kids hanging around on St. John’s road intimidating people and dropping litter. Other than that I really enjoy living here.

Transport

Clapham junction station is fantastic, it gets incredibly busy at rush hour but can get you to pretty much any tube line in 10 minutes or less. I used to live near a tube but don’t miss it at all. Lots of buses too. The trains are fairly clean as expected but not sparkling. Trains are reliable.

Community

Bin collection for me is on a Wednesday and they do recycling and normal every week. I live very near the station but never hear the trains or Clapham grand. My street are mainly owners I believe, mixture of couples and families. There is some antisocial behaviour especially at the end of the road by Waitrose and sometimes youths will play loud music and smoke weed sitting outside peoples houses but not that often. There’s been a lot of bicycle theft and there are a lot of litterbugs.

Amenities

The range of shops is good and St John’s road and Northcote road have pretty much everything you could want although more and more independents are closing down sadly and being replaced with cafes or very niche food places (like a hot chocolate shop). It makes it interesting but I can’t see them lasting. Wandsworth common and Clapham Common are popular areas and the M&S and Waitrose are people’s go to shops for top ups but big shops could be at Lidl or Asda. Debenhams used to be popular but has recently shut down and we aren’t sure what will be replacing it. TK Maxx also very popular. Lovely bars and pubs down Northcote road and Battersea rise and good restaurants too (mix of independent and chains).

Clapham - the happening place.

All varieties of facility in an area that is suitable for all types of people and very safe.

Transport

Multiple modes of transport (bus, train, taxi) - excellent. Good frequency day and night to destinations near and far.

Community

Parking availability is excellent. Bin collection regular and timely and the day after the road is cleaned by manual and mechanical sweepers. Th e people who live on the street are a mixture of owners, renters, singletons and families.

Amenities

There is an excellent selection of good quality restaurants and bars. As well as a choice of five national supermarkets there are local independent food shops and also shops for everyday requirements and all the principal high street stores. A good number of open spaces to cycle , walk and sit. Nothing of significance.

Area is one of the safest I have ever lived in.

Transport

Cycle routes are fine, tube can be crowded but is reliable, overground is my preferred choice to navigate this tremendous city.

Community

My street has a mix of younger and older, I think therefore also a mix of renters and remnants, there is no anti social behaviour and traffic noise is OK.

Amenities

Nice mix of amenities, bars and open spaces offer lots of fun, would love to see more Japanese cuisine to get my gyōza fix.
