Why move to Clapham?

Clapham is a multifaceted community with the well-known Common as its centrepiece for all seasons. It attracts a wide-ranging demographic and particularly appeals to young professionals and families with its excellent transport links and superb state and private schools. The Abbeville and Clapham Old Town areas offer charm and a village community feel whilst the High Street represents a more typical London suburb with an array of amenities, retailers, bars and restaurants. The transport links are a true feature of the area with three tube stations (Clapham North, Clapham Common and Clapham South) and three overground stations (Clapham High Street, Wandsworth Road and Clapham Junction), ensuring that local inhabitants can easily access all corners of the Capital.

A little bit of history

The present-day Clapham High Street is in fact an ancient Roman road – a stone marking its existence can be found at the entrance to the former Clapham Library. The area was mentioned in the Domesday Book and was formerly part of the Brixton Hundred and within Surrey. Many large 17th- and 18th-century country homes were built around the Common and attracted the wealthy gentry, including Samuel Pepys. Today, the area is split into two halves: the Old Town around Abbeville Road which is popular with families, and the ‘Young Clapham’ around the High Street, where there is new development.

Architecture and property

Clapham has many different styles of houses, from detached and semi-detached family homes to characterful terraced properties as well as apartments. There is a strong family market for houses and also an equally buoyant flat market for the younger professionals wanting to be within easy commutable distance of central London. Properties range from Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Arts and Crafts era as well as newly built/modern homes.

Shopping and amenities

Shopping in Clapham is excellent, with both small, independent shops and larger chains featuring prominently on Clapham's High Street, Abbeville Road, Nightingale Lane, St John’s Road and Northcote Road. Clapham Old Town offers a variety of shops, coffee shops and a local organic food store. Newly pedestrianised Venn Street hosts a lively food market on Saturdays with seafood, cheese and charcuterie stands and coffee. The lively area of Brixton is also close by and boasts a variety of local independent and chain shops, restaurants and coffee shops.

Going out

There are many pubs and restaurants in Clapham, which has something of a reputation for being a great night out. There are gastro pubs, independent bistro restaurants, there is even a Michelin star restaurant, Trinity. Whether you fancy modern Asian, something European, a gourmet burger, a pizza or just a drink Clapham has a bar scene which is just as varied, including cocktail bars, lively pubs and nightclubs. Clapham is also home to a Picturehouse cinema.

Green space

Clapham is located in South West London in the borough of Lambeth. It's famous for the large open space called Clapham Common, over 220 acres in size and featuring three ponds and a restored bandstand. Clapham Common is a great place to take a walk on a chilly autumn day; it's also the perfect place to have a picnic during the summer months. Other local green spaces include Wandsworth and Battersea Park.

Schools

Schools in Clapham include 13 primary schools (four rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted), plus several local secondary schools that are rated outstanding.  Close by schools include Parkgate, Eaton House, Thomas’, Newton Prep, Belleville Wix and L'école de Wix Lycée français

Transport

Getting from A to B is relatively easy thanks in part to the great public transport links that serve Clapham. Two train stations run on the East London Line and there are also three underground stations on the Northern Line. Clapham Junction is Europe’s busiest railway station, with arrivals every 13 seconds in peak time. From here it’s just 10 minutes into central London, but it’s also possible to travel further afield to Surrey, Hampshire and the South Coast. Buses are also convenient and for cyclists there’s the Cycle Superhighway 7 via the common.
