Quietly sitting next to the much busier Clapham, the South London district of Balham has become a place for the more discerning business traveller in recent years.
For an area in South London, Balham is surprisingly relaxed and peaceful, lacking the pretensions sometimes found elsewhere in the English capital. If this was once something to be made fun of, it seems to be serving Balham well in recent years, helping to make the district popular with the middle-class professional crowd.
In Travelcard Zone 3, with an underground station on the Northern Line and, on the over ground line, trains into London Victoria about every 5 minutes, Balham is a good choice for those seeking to stay longer in the city. Our serviced apartments in Balham can be found not just in the centre of the district itself, but also bordering neighbouring areas such as Earlsfield, Battersea and Clapham.
Though Balham is great for dining out, particularly considering its size, it’s the coffee shops and little cafes that are the real feature of eating out in Balham – so it’s maybe more important to ‘lunch-out’ as dine out there. For those staying in Balham serviced apartments, nights out may well revolve around what’s on at ‘The Bedford’, which isn’t just a great pub, but also a live venue for top comedy acts and music, having seen performances from the likes of Ed Sheeran and Paolo Nutini.
