“Relax in beautiful Clapham Common Park. Boasting several sporting facilities, including tennis and basketball courts, cricket nets and a skate park, Clapham Common is very popular with locals, here you can also go for a run and cycle. Grab a coffee at one of the three cafes, and enjoy a stroll around the park's many ponds. Clapham Common's bandstand is the largest in London, and hosts various music concerts in the warmer months.”
