While the Australians and young professionals dominate the High Street on a Saturday night, come Sunday morning the cafes and the Common are full of families and students enjoying brunch from one of the many local restaurants.
Old Town and Clapham South, as the pricier areas, are generally where the families settle while Clapham North and Clapham Junction have more of a student vibe, with lots of flat shares on offer and many nearby bars.
The only downside of South is that depending on where you live, even though there is a Clapham South station stop on the Northern Line, it feels a little further out.
With plenty of large Victorian and Georgian terrace houses, this part is popular with middle-class families who want to enjoy the short distance to Central London, while also having good schools and the expansive Clapham Common nearby.
The nearest tube station is Clapham Common (Northern Line), located on the corner of the Common and the High Street.
The area was quite badly bombed during the Second World War, and a number of air raid shelters can still be seen around Clapham.
In the 1980s a regeneration program began and the area has since become gentrified once more.
Another main draw of Clapham, particularly for the City workers, are the great transport links.
