Clapham and Battersea Area Guide
Whether its Clapham Common, the Junction or Clapham High Street, this area is a mecca of excitement and activity as well as excellent opportunities to rent or buy. Clapham Common is 220 acres of green space, with three ponds and an old bandstand. It is overlooked by a variety of buildings including a number of Georgian and Victorian mansions. Clapham Town comprises Clapham High Street and is home to many restaurants, bars, amenities and a food market held every weekend throughout the year. With a railway station, and two tube stations, commuting from Clapham is relatively simple and a major factor for most when choosing to live here. The railway station now known as Clapham Junction was originally named Battersea Junction by its architect to reflect its geographical location and is one of Britain's busiest railway stations and serves almost all routes necessary in and around south west England. If you are looking for an area that caters for those wanting to be active in the daytime for shopping and leisure on the commons whilst having fantastic options for nightlife, Clapham is the place for you.
