Clapham Attractions
Unlike many other areas in London, Clapham refers to quite a large area, including the very large Clapham Common, the Junction in the south west and Battersea in the north. So suffice it to say, there’s tons to do – chilling on the Common, the hundreds of great, quirky bars, the Clapham Picturehouse (cinema) and so on.

Recommended Attraction in Clapham
But for a big, slap-up meal, Red Dog Saloon have just opened their second enterprise near Clapham North station, and we seriously recommend getting a stomach-full of this authentic American BBQ restaurant. It’s rare to find somewhere that actually embodies the American food spirit rather than just paying lip-service, but Red Dog does just that and offers some of the best buffalo wings you could hope for, as well as a blinding blue-cheese sauce.

Clapham Common

It’s surprising that there isn’t more written about this vital London venue. Sure, it’s a large park, and as such has a lot in common (no pun intended) with many other parks. But there’s more to Clapham Common than just open, green pasture. Not only is there a reasonably good skate-park, an incredibly expansive walking area, football pitches, a pretty impressive pagoda, a beautiful duck pond and a paddling pool for kids; but there’s also a massive music festival each year. Get yourself down there!
