Just 30 minutes from the center of London by public transport, or fifteen from Shoreditch and Dalston, Clapton is a perfect base; close enough to the heart of hip East London to be convenient, but still an unspoiled community in its own right. Previous summers saw the 2012 Olympics and Radio 1 Hackney Weekend taking place literally on the doorstep, within walking distance of the property.
The areas offers the perfect mix of the old and new; traditional pubs and photographers’ studios, old-fashioned cafes and new gourmet restaurants, the canal and the marshes and artists’ studios. Immediate neighbours include lovely local restaurant Shane’s, the adorable Cooper & Wolf café, Triangle Store, London Borough of Jam and Johnny’s Hair Shop, as well as the buzzing Sunday market.
Chatsworth Road in lower Clapton is awash with delis, wine bars and a food market, while the area’s schools have benefited from multi-million-pound cash injections which have seen exam results soar. Nearby Springfield Park boasts sports facilities, stylish cafés, allotments and even an old-fashioned bandstand.
Evening Standard - a microcosm of bourgeoisie east London life with wooden-tabled wine bars, Swedish brunch spots and a “coffee and records shop” all part of the neighbourhood’s tapestry.
Guardian - Clapton is special. Where else in inner London can you find an ice rink, horse-riding Centre and rowing club?
Time Out - a thriving food destination

Secondaries: Ickburgh is good, Clapton Girls' Academy and Stormont House outstanding, and Mossbourne exceptional. Lots of independent faith schools.
