Clapham, home to Vanessa Redgrave and JK Rowling, is a young, fashionable and affluent multi-cultural area in South West London, situated in the boroughs of Lambeth and Wandsworth.
The area is serviced by three tube stations, all on the Northern Line and Clapham High Street rail station linking South West to East and West London via the Overground. Clapham Junction (technically in Battersea) is a short bus ride away, arguably providing the best transport links anywhere in London to all parts of London and the whole of South England.
You won’t have to travel far for entertainment as everything is on your doorstep, from restaurants providing cuisine from all over the world to nightclubs such as the famous Clapham Grand providing live music and comedy and a range of trendy bars like Inigo, playing a wide range of funky house and dance music.
Or if you prefer quieter activities, visit the Landor Theatre or Clapham Picturehouse for the latest films and at the end of a long working week visit colourful Venn Street Market in Clapham Old Town for fresh foods, including gluten free delicacies and flowers.
If you have a young family, Clapham schools are excellent; Clapham Common with its three ponds, playground areas, all weather games area: Clapham Picturehouse with its special services for mothers and babies, toddlers and kids club; and Little Luvies classes for 2.5-7year old children at Clapham Pop School & Stage Academy, will keep the kids happily occupied till bedtime.
