Clapham Trivia

The actor and theme tune writer Dennis Waterman was born here.

The name Clapham is said to have been derived from "Clappa's Farm"

Clapham Junction Station (actually in Battersea) is said to be the busiest train station in Europe, with over 2,000 trains passing through it every day.

There are 4 places called Clapham in the UK. The other 3 are in West Sussex, North Yorkshire and Bedfordshire (could this explain Bedford Road by Clapham North tube?)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lively
  • Cons:Nightlife a bit samey, catering predominantly to the yuppie crowd
