Here is your list of best places to live in London south of the river.
Clapham Common – Located in south London Clapham is a mixed bag – from yummy mummies to Antipodeans and a large French community which means fabulous bakeries and meat! A double room in the area starts at around £550 a month (and a 2 bedroom flat at £1500) and you’ll be close to shops, the Northern line tube which runs a great service to the city and the Common which is an amazing place for picnics in the summer.
Balham – Just down the road from Clapham, Balham is also a popular area for young professionals and families. The rents cheaper but you’re still close to shops and restaurants and also the common for a weekend morning run. 2 bedroom flats rent for £1350 and rooms are around£500 per month.
Brixton – Brixton used to have a bad reputation, but has become very hip in recent years due to its music and club scene, and the fact that it’s so close to central London on the Victoria line. This is a very multicultural area of London which means great food and there’s a market nearly every day of the week too. You can easily rent a room for under £500 per month and a 2 bedroom flat for £1200.
Wimbledon – Possibly London’s most famous suburb, Wimbledon is located a little further out in zone 3, but it’s stunning if it’s some peace and quiet you’re after – perfect for families with young children. Rents can be decent (£500-600 per month for a double room, £1300 for a 2 bedroom flat) and you’ll be in the midst of the action come June when the tournament kicks off!
Putney – Right on the river and home to many pubs and bars, Putney is a great place to be in the summer. On the district line and walking distance to Fulham or Hammersmith, it’s popular with people from overseas as with every south west suburb! You can rent a double room here for around £500 a month, or a 2 bedroom flat for £1500.
