Located in South West London, Clapham is a vibrant suburb of England's capital city and is where you'll find a mixture of Regency and Georgian architecture. One of London's most historic areas, and mentioned in the Doomsday Book, its green spaces and busy streets lie on top of old roman roads and air raid shelters.
The gentrification of Clapham in the 1980s means that there are plenty of restaurants and cafes to visit and, if you're in need of a little relaxation, Clapham Common is a lovely place to walk and soak up the sun.
