“Getting Better”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Clapham used to be a posh part of London (can you believe it?) many a-year ago but then suffered greatly in the last 50 years and went very downhill.

In the last 10 years, however, things have started looking up again. Definitel wouldn't say that it has the same boho vibe as some of the East End which is also being regenerated, but does offer something for most people for nightlife, shopping, and entertainment in SW London.

The Common is quite nice too, as far as London commons go and is worth a visit if you are in the area and enjoy that sort of thing.

“Great place to be”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

It is getting more popular among Londonners. Those who live in North did not venture into South before but gradually more are coming. It got everything one needs but it is not as crowded as West End or elsewhere. Shops are not running late except dorm clubs but one can find nice restaurants and cafés, and bars.

“Clapham Common - Race for Life”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Clapham Comon is a great place to visit. Perfect for doggie walking or a picnic. In my case I was there with several thousand people we were doing the Race for Life. My friend and I walked 10K It was a great evening and the venue was spot on!
