Affluent young professionals have always coveted this south western corner of London for its Victorian terraces, massive green spaces and established cafe culture. The fact that after settling down and starting families, they decided to stay in the area has given rise to the phenomenon known as "Nappy Valley" as wealthy young mums continually shape the local economy.

Family-friendly eateries, gift shops and organic delicatessens thrive in the high street along with galleries, independent cinemas a funky library. Clapham common itself remains a focal point with the duck pond and vintage bandstand contributing to an urban village feel.

The continuous success of the area is not hard to work out. Beautiful period homes overlooking leafy avenues are positioned near three Northern line tube stations all of which are in the desirable Zone 2 part of South London. There are also some good modern developments springing up. Rental accommodation here puts corporate professionals and young families well within reach of both City office and/or West End theatre show. This is made possible by the fact that the line splits off into two parallel routes as it enters the centre of the City. One Northern line branch goes through the financial district via Bank station, while the other dissects the West End shopping and leisure areas of Leicester Square and Tottenham Court Road. You can also take the north bound train out to leafy Barnet on the borders of Hertforshire in less than 45 minutes.
