St John’s Hill is a trendy street with a mixture of residential homes and commercial premises. It is also where the main entrance for Clapham Junction Station is located.
A new development is currently being built by the Peabody Trust, called St John’s Way, which is replacing some of the interwar buildings which were previously there.
There are also mixture of period homes, some which are above commercial premises. Most of these have now been carefully converted into flats but still retain the attractive period features, including bay windows and high ceilings.
There is an array of restaurants, including Adulis, which serves Eritrean cuisine and Dan&Angel which serves wood-fired pizzas and Spanish tapas. There’s also an array of bars and pubs including "The Plough Bar and Kitchen" and the "Three Six Six Battersea".
Every year St John’s Hill Festival takes place, which includes an array of stalls serving food from around the world, local business setting up stalls offering their services at a discount, and the pubs and bars opening their doors so locals can eat and drink outside. This is just one of the events that gives this road a community feel.
With Clapham Junction Station right on the doorstep, those who are residents have direct links to stations in and out of central London. There are also a number of bus links, some being a 24 hour service and there are a few Santander bus docking stations located around the area too.
As it is a main road, most of the parking bays are for those who pay and display, but there are plenty of side residential roads which are for permit holders or for those who pay and display.
There are also gyms, supermarkets, a department store and a number of retail shops towards the east end of the road.
With the annual festivals, the great community feel, amenities within easy reach, it is a popular area from young professionals and young families alike.
