Boasting 220 acres of green space, Clapham Common has often been associated with young professionals who sip champagne and eat salmon out of their wicker picnic hampers. In fact, the park is as diverse as it is vast. Crammed with kite flyers, joggers, cyclists and children it is one of the most popular spaces in South London. Famed for its music gigs and festivals it is a vibrant destination for summer fun. After a day soaking up the sun in Clapham you can retire to the string of stylish pubs and restaurants that line the common.
