Top 14 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Clapham, London, UK - Updated 2020

airbnb London Clapham, Uk

While Westminster gets all the spotlight and prominent features in travel brochures, London’s less known areas have something great to offer as well. Clapham is one such place. The southwestern district has a timeless charm that blends well with its vibrant lifestyle. Clapham used to be only for the wealthier merchant classes from the late 17th to the early 19th century, with plenty of large mansions and villas built around Clapham Commons and the Old Town. By 1900, it fell out of favor as an upscale district and many of the large mansions were demolished, although a few still remain today. Today, Clapham is more known for its vibrant scene. There’s plenty of nightlife activities and events taking place frequently in the district. Despite this, much of its charm from the 18th century is retained, with areas like the Clapham Commons – a 220-acre site full of lush greenery – still a sight to see in Victorian and Georgian mansions of old. Looking to book your next vacation here? We’ve got 14 Airbnb vacation rentals you should consider!

1. Cozy room in South London

The good news: You get a really cozy room in south London that’s a quick two-minute walk from the Clapham North station and Clapham High Overground and perfect for solo travelers. The not so good: the family is only comfortable with females. Apart from the tube, the apartment is also close to buses that go to West End, where places like Oxford Circus and Covent Garden are located. Towels and hairdryer are also provided, so you can afford to pack a little lighter.
