London City Guide: 244 Best Travel Tips from London Locals

Clapham & Battersea in London

Why locals love it

A mish-mash of old and new, where council flats neighbour leafy side streets lined with picturesque town houses. Those who dwell in the South enjoy good proximity to the city centre, a good range of transport options and above all, a high density of parks, including some of London's best.

Why you should visit it

Here you can see where many of London's young professionals live, relax and party. The pubs, bars and parks are always overflowing with locals out for a good time.

Special tip

Clapham Junction station is actually in Battersea, not Clapham. Clapham's three tube stations are on the Northern Line.
