Why move to Clapham?

Clapham offers a village feel in the Old Town, a bustling metropolis feel on the High Street and the peaceful tranquility of one of London's best and biggest parks, Clapham Common, which is overlooked by grand Georgian and Victorian mansions. Many young professionals with children are drawn to the area for its bars, restaurants, shops and friendly parent-and-pram scene, not to mention the excellent transport links. Many homes in Clapham are pretty Victorian terraces, some Georgian stucco fronted, (for example in the prestigious Grafton Square). These are complemented by modern developments including the Wingate Square Library building. Off the High Street most of the houses have been converted into flats whereas the Old Town offers more family homes.

A little bit of history
Clapham High Street traces part of an ancient Roman Road that ran from London to Chichester. This fact was revealed by a roman stone which can now be found outside Clapham Library. The name Clapham is thought to mean 'homestead near a hill' and comes from the Old English 'Cloppa Hamm'.

Need to know
Locals affectionately call Clapham 'Cla'am' in honour of having become one of south London's most sought-after areas.

Shopping
Clapham offers all the usual high street suspects of Sainsbury's, Superdrug, Boots and Oddbins etc and much, much more besides. On the high street we love the charming bookshop Clapham Books and the progressive supermarket Today's Living. On Abbeville Road, AKA The Village, you'll find delicious ready meals of Cook, favourite tipples at Abbeville Wines, delicious cakes and breads at Le Petit Boulanger and shabby chic antiques at Les Sardines Antiques. We also recommend Venn Street market, a local community food market which takes place every Saturday.

THE CHOICE OF EXCELLENT CUISINE FROM AROUND THE WORLD IS ONE OF CLAPHAM'S BIGGEST ATTRACTIONS.
