Why Move to Clapham?
Roughly sectioned into the three areas, Clapham North, Old Town and Clapham South, Clapham mostly lays within the London Borough of Lambeth.
Once home to rich merchants who had their grand homes built facing what is now known as Clapham Common, still a desirable location today.
It’s all about the connections: Easy transport links to London make commuting a piece of cake, just 20 minutes by train and 35 departures every hour!
Clapham exudes a lively vibe that makes it a top attraction for all, located very nicely across the Thames from posh Knightsbridge and Chelsea.
An alluring mix of high street brands nestle alongside artisan coffee shops, popular eateries and bars which means you don’t need to travel very far for daily necessities or pleasantries of life.
Living in Clapham means you can enjoy all the same privileges that more up-market areas offer but you don’t have to pay quite as much to live here.
Clapham has a relatively low crime rate along with high performing schools making it an excellent choice for growing families with Abbeville Village being a firm favourite for those with children.
Awash with things to do and see in particular the 220 acre Common, mentioned in the Domesday Book, it hosts all sorts of events annually. Music festivals, gigs, kite flying and bike riding it is a very popular place to spend time.
However, there are plenty of other parks and open spaces too, as well as leisure centres and gyms, including the recently refurbished Virgin Active.
The nightlife in Clapham is notoriously impressive with a huge choice of clubs and bars many open until the early hours.
Eating out is made all the more difficult because of the massive range of eateries Clapham has. Pizza, fast food, and some great unique places to eat such as Brickwood – part of a mini-chain of feelgood Aussie-themed cafés.
If you want to splash the cash, Trinity is one of the areas smartest restaurants in town. Larger than life, dynamic but with some quieter more refined areas, Clapham offers so much.
Clapham Schools & Education
Clapham has plenty of school options with a huge number of state primary and secondary schools available alongside many sought after independent schools. The high quality of educational standards draws people here from across London.
Three of the best schools for younger children are Honeywell Junior School, Honeywell Infant School and Holy Ghost Catholic Primary School. All state schools and all “outstanding” says Ofsted.
Ark Bolingbroke Academy, Chestnut Grove School and La Retraite Roman Catholic Girls’ School are also very highly regarded by Ofsted.
Although there are plenty of FE colleges in the city, one of the closest is South Thames College. Situated in the heart of Wandsworth, it boasts fantastic purpose-built teaching facilities and offers entry level to higher education qualifications as well as courses for personal development. The college has an excellent track record in teaching students of all ages, abilities and provides hundreds of courses.
Private schools are also readily available with 13 dotted around the district. Catering for children between the ages of 2 and 19 years.
Things to do in Clapham
Clapham offers an impressive and diverse number of activities when it comes to things to do. You can be as busy or as lazy as you want.
The lively bars and clubs cater generally for younger residents who enjoy partying until the wee small hours. Whilst a fantastic choice of up market restaurants offer diners a more sedate evening out.
If you enjoy going to the movies, that is covered too. Clapham Picturehouse is an independent cinema with a modern four screen cinema and bar on popular Venn Street.
Culture lovers are not left out either. The Battersea Arts Centre, housed in a beautiful Grade II listed building, is the leading live stage theatre for the district.
Not far away, Brixton Market, one of London’s finest, is a must. Partly open air partly covered, the market sells a wide range of foods and goods but is best known for its African and Caribbean produce, which reflect the diverse community of Brixton and surrounding area.
Not a huge attraction but none the less important, Clapham Tower is one of the most historical and defining sites of Clapham. Over 100 years old, this structure is a major historical treasure and well worth investigating.
Without a doubt the most loved attraction is Clapham Common. It is at the centre of every day life in Clapham.
It is huge, open 24/7, has no less than three duck ponds and its Victorian bandstand is where all sorts of interesting things happen during the year. From festivals to music recitals, from all forms of exercise to relaxing picnics, the common is a winner all round.
The first thing to say about property in Clapham is that like all areas of London, homes do not come cheap with the average price paid currently being £867,115.
Clapham is also known to be more upmarket when compared to some other districts in South London. Up and coming, its popularity has ensured a steady increase in values.
Even though buying is expensive, it is just about affordable. Rather than live right in the centre of London, many have purchased larger homes further out and Clapham fits this bill nicely.
It is the huge properties which overlook Clapham Common which are in greatest demand. Mostly Georgian and Victorian in style, they make superb family homes. You can expect to pay at least £2,000,000 for the privilege of living so close to the common.
For more reasonably priced property look along Union Road, where three-bedroom homes are for sale from £395,000.
If you are a first-time buyer, you can purchase a one-bedroom flat from around £250,000.
As local people are being priced out of the market, the buy to let market is also booming.
Renters can expect to pay on average from £914 pcm for a one-bedroom flat, £1707pcm for two bedrooms and upward from £2181 for a three-bedroom place.
