What’s going for it?
The superb transport facilities, including the numerous buses taking you all over London, Clapham Junction and, of course not forgetting, Battersea Park and Clapham Common both on your doorstep bring a slice of the British countryside into the heart of the city.
Clapham Junction, which is reputed to be the busiest train station in Europe, has regular services to Victoria and Waterloo as well as the South Coast. And now the Northern Line is being connected to the new development at Battersea Power Station, Battersea will really be open for business.
And the schools?
There are a wide variety of schools available catering for all requirements including Wix Bilingual School, Sacred Heart Roman Catholic School, St Thomas, Harris Academy and Belleville Primary. You can check out the Ofsted reports to help you make your choice.
Hang out at...
The Northcote Road offers Battersea’s unique shopping street where you will find a large variety of specialist shops and boutiques complemented by market stalls. If you’re looking for an evening out, there are dozens of restaurants to choose from and a lively scene with a range of cocktail bars.
Where to buy
For a growing family, the roads by Clapham Common give plenty of space to grow in comfort. For easy maintenance, one of the modern developments on the riverside would be ideal. However, if you are in beween these stages, then Nappy Valley off Northcote Road would suit perfectly.
