We used to live near Clapham Common in 1958 - in fact a flat in a nearby street was our first married home! The common is large and well-kept, with a pond, play area, tea place, a pub (our old local, The Windmill), lots of lovely scenery, trees, grasses, ideal for a picnic!

Acres of beautiful park, lakes and amazing countryside ... Lovely place just to 'chillax' especially when the sun is shining. Great to take a picnic and soak up the surroundings

Having driven past hundreds of times, I visited the park to meet my partner after doing the Moonwalk Marathon. The park that's usually a peaceful place near the main A205 South Circular Road was buzzing with people. It's certainly a nice place to go if you livebinnufban London.

We stayed in a families apartment for the marathon weekend in Clapham Common. The children loved the open space and the park. There are lots of lovely little shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, supermarkets and the tube station. I loved it and will defo want to visit again soon.

An old favourite, great restaurants and a lovely lake, gorgeous parks, vibrant summer spaces, hopeful winter coffee shops. Arts cinema and theatres near by and a vibrant character that does not rely on the Chelsea overflow.
