Welcome to Clapham Rentals
About Clapham Rentals
Clapham is a varied, vibrant area of South London comprising of a huge Common, a long High Street, and Britain’s busiest railway station. The cost of renting in Clapham has steadily risen over the last few years, however, it’s possible to find a bargain on Clapham flat rentals. The northern end of Clapham is more reasonably priced than the south, while the majority of the area has previously been gentrified; the northerners are the latest to receive such treatment.
Considered to house mostly students and young professionals just getting started, the polar region of Clapham flat rentals is more urban and up and coming. However, the north, having its own tube station on the northern line makes it an ideal place to reside for commuting. The south end of Clapham is host to younger families and the “professional middle class”. Popular for its appealing gastropubs, farmers markets, and antique shops, the south side of Clapham appeals to the more low-key crowds. For the middle-class residents, Clapham Old Town is lined with large Victorian and Georgian houses, for those families who enjoy a short trip to central London while also having desirable schools and the Clapham Common close by. Some of those homes have been converted and are now Clapham flat rentals.
While you can find almost every type of person here, the young professionals seem to dominate the nightlife on the High Street on Saturday nights. But Sunday mornings you’ll find the Common chocked full of families and students enjoying the many local restaurants and shops during the day.
