Clapham area highlights

There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common sits at its centre and is always buzzing with activity. There’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. It rarely feels overcrowded here, despite the abundance of things to do, and Clapham endures as one of the most desirable places to live in south London. The local schools are excellent and the transport options second to none, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station.
