There are a number of notable neighbourhoods in the Clapham area that offer great accommodation within easy walking distance of many of the top sights and attractions locally. Clapham Town and Clapham North are great for their bustling high streets and proximity to the popular music venues of Brixton. The neighbourhoods of Clapham South and Clapham Common meanwhile offer easy access to the luscious greenery and open spaces of Clapham Common, allowing visitors a ready reprieve from the city crowds. Though London is generally a safe capital city to visit, guests are still advised to keep an eye on their possessions, as pickpockets may operate in even the quietest areas.
Perhaps most known for the pleasant parkland of Clapham Common, Clapham is also a major transport hub for both rail and road. Clapham Junction station sees thousands of commuters pass through it every day, and the present day Clapham High Street is, in fact, an ancient diversion of the Roman military road Stane Street, which ran from London to Chichester. An area with a history and legacy in keeping with much of wider London, these are some of our favourite facts about Clapham visitors may find interesting:
Though less expensive than some of the more central parts of London, rental prices in Clapham can still be relatively high for most properties. With average monthly costs ranging anywhere from £700 to £2,000+, serviced accommodation becomes an increasingly viable option for extended stays given the many benefits and perks that go hand-in-hand with longer tenancy periods from TheSqua.re.
Unfortunately, there are few savings to be found in day to day expenses. Weekly travel passes (for Zones 1-2) can run to upwards of £35, while the cost of dining out can range from £15 for a meal for one to £55 for a three-course dinner for two. The reasonably low price of local groceries does, however, mean that this expenditure can be offset by stay-at-home meals, always a viable option thanks to TheSqua.re’s fully-equipped kitchens. Medical costs will also be next to nothing, thanks to the UK-wide NHS, with residents normally only needing to pay for private or cosmetic surgery or dental care. Money can also be saved on local entertainment, including theatres and cinemas, with inexpensive ticket prices and membership options available.
From paid day trips to fun freebies, there are plenty of things for new and returning visitors to see and do in and around Clapham. Whether travelling solo or with the family, these are just a few of the top sights and attractions to help guests make the most out of their leisure time.

Whenever quiet nights in of home cooking seem like more of a hassle, Clapham residents can get out and explore the many fine restaurants and eateries in the nearby area. From familiar chains to artisan eateries, there is a huge host of catering options available to suit all tastes, and with so much choice available, it can sometimes be hard to narrow a selection down.
Here are a few places to eat in Clapham we would recommend to any visitor:
Street food is also an option in the area, with the likes of Balham Kitchen, Stewed! and Venn Street Market offering delicious takeaway meals for hungry visitors. For a true street food dining experience, however, we would recommend paying a visit to some of the more regular pop-up markets around Central London, such as Maltby Street Market, Model Market, Street Food Union, and the Southbank Centre Food Market. Adventurous guests can even venture over to Stratford Westfield’s Food Hall for a delicious range of national and international cuisine, and partake in some window shopping after. What’s not to like?
Though not quite as well-known as some of the more familiar shopping destinations in London, such as Stratford, Covent Garden or Oxford Street, the area around Clapham still offers plenty of high street chain stores and independent boutiques in which visitors can indulge in some retail therapy. Excellent transport links provide ready access to the larger shopping hubs in the city for those looking for a specific purchase; for the rest, there is a great selection of fashion, food and technology close to home, so both short term and long term residents will be able to find everything they could possibly need during their visit.

With 11 Underground lines covering 270 stations, London’s public transport network is world-famous and all-encompassing, meaning that visitors can feel assured they will never be too far from home. Residents of Clapham will be able to traverse the many boroughs of the capital with ease, and several major overground terminals, such as London Victoria, Waterloo and Kings Cross, open up options for getting out and exploring the wider country. Clapham is served by several tube stations, overground lines and National Rail services, among them Clapham North, Clapham Common and Clapham South (Northern Line), Clapham High Street (Overground) and Clapham Junction (Overground and National Rail). These stations are arguably the most efficient ways of travelling around the city, and Day Travelcards can be bought (accepted through Zones 1-5) for around £20.
London is, of course, famous for its iconic black taxis and red buses, and these can both be a great way of sightseeing during travel. Buses, in particular, are exceptionally useful: they can be boarded with a simple tap of a Contactless Payment Card, Travelcard or Oyster (£1.70 for a single fare, £4.50 for a day of bus-only travel), and run over 700 routes, including 52 night services. Visitors with their own vehicle will also be able to easily get out and explore the wider area in no time at all, as Clapham is usefully linked via the A3 to a whole network of road routes.
Due to a generally temperate climate throughout much of the UK, the weather in Clapham can be quite unpredictable, with temperatures ranging from below freezing during winter, to dry and balmy heights of thirty and above in the summer. Wet weather gear is however essential packing for any time of year, as downpours can still be just a cloud away. We would recommend visiting in September, as this month offers warm days and comfortable cool evenings, enabling travellers to maximise their time outside and make the most out of their stay.
