Simple Victorian townhomes and casual taverns compose Balham, a southwest London neighbourhood with a friendly atmosphere and suburban amenities. Getting to Balham’s town centre is easy—the neighbourhood has its own tube station. Away from Balham’s commercial core and its mix of independent bookstores, boutiques, and big-name chains, the neighbourhood leads a quiet life punctuated by brief interjections of music and comedy from landmark venues like The Bedford.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
