Very suitable for pets, children so so as the noise is bad and there are a very social events that happen regularly.

It’s a very trendy area. A mix of people and animals alike. Very suitable for pets, children so so as the noise is bad and there are a very social events that happen regularly. I imagine it would be difficult with a new born.

Transport

Clapham Common is great as you have Clapham South, Common and Northtube stations with busses regularly in and out. Lavender Hill slightly misses an accessible tube station. You babe Clapham Junction railway station or you would have to walk to Clapham Common or Vauxhall. Both doable but a little further than most normal travel journeys. The bus system is great and there are at least 4 busses that give me access to where I need to get to for my job. Easy to locate and regular so I never need to worry too much with any commute. Sometimes the bus schedule can be a little off and it feels like you either have 3 of the same bus or you are waiting a good 12 mins for 1 bus but overall very happy with what is available.

Community

It’s very noisy. Initially when I moved in, I didn’t expect it to be this noisy. Regular traffic noise as well as party noise and noise from the restaurant and bars. There is a definitely a mix of home owners and renters but I’d say the majority are renters. Age range varies to be honest from students to the retired. I would say, it’s not ideal if you don’t like noise as it took me a while to adjust to hearing noise regularly and now I sleep in earplugs so i can get a decent nights sleep. Great location, great peoples, just a little noisy!

Amenities

Lots of new businesses opening along Lavender Hill which are amazing. Qualify bakeries, cafes, restaurants and general shops for amenities. The area is like a little community especially in Cravens Mews where I live. The residents and all the business owners look out for each other and it’s very much a community feel. Probably the only thing missing are retail shops but it’s not a huge loss for the area. Clapham Common is always packed but it’s not necessarily the best. I would also expect some retail shops along Clapham high street. It’s popular enough to create great revenue for any business that opens.

The people here are great and diverse in culture and race.

If I didn't live here and had a choice to move here, my main question would be I be 'Is the area upbeat and modern'. Personally I wouldn't say it is, although there is a sense of party life, the houses are still victorian and not that many modern builds.

Transport

London transport is the best means of transport for this are, with bus stops every few hundred meters and plenty of tube stations. And of course not forgetting Clapham Junction.

Community

Unless you actually live in the area, parking can be an issue especially on the main high street. As with most areas with shops and a busy train station the noise level is not low. The people here are great and diverse in culture and race.

Amenities

There are plenty of pubs, bars and restaurants to keep you interested and many cafe around if your the coffee type. There are open spaces and parks if your the quite type, however, if your not familiar with the area you will have go looking for them. There are plenty of named brand shops and is perfect if you use London transport as parking space could be an issue.

It’s a nice safe area and is probably more affordable part of generally quite affluent area. Great for young children and Northcote road and Clapham good for young ppl. Not that trendy as an area though

Transport

Northern line in morning is so busy. Not as many underground stations as other areas but northern line extension will be good. Clapham junction very useful

Community

I would like more regular street cleaning and in the small housing development behind us there can be fly tipping. Road is a real mixture of families, flat shares, couples, retired ppl. Mixture owners and renters too

Amenities

Great open spaces, good access to supermarkets and some high street stores. Would prefer more independent stores. Tons of cafes, specialist coffee shops getting better all the time. Couple excellent restaurants, some good/average.
