Interaction with Guests
We are more than happy to recommend local or interesting places to go!
I am at work most of the week and so you might not see much of me but Damian is always at hand for anything you need.
Depending on what you are interested in doing during your stay, we have local tennis courts about 5 min walk away at Larkhall Park and Battersea Park is a 20 min walk away and definitely worth a visit. Alternatively Clapham High Street has lots of bars and restaurants to explore. We are also a short bus ride to Tate Britain, the bus actually stops directly outside so very easy to get to. The same bus goes directly to Trafalgar Sq so you can be in the excitement of the city centre in no time!
We also have Barclay's Bike Docks near the house, where you can rent out a bike for an hour or a day! The first 30 mins is free, and it is a great way to explore the city.
Our first recommendation is to purchase an Oyster card. This is a travel card you can use on the underground, overground and buses. It costs £5 deposit and then you top it up with money for travel use. It is by far the cheapest way to travel, without it a journey will cost more than double. On leaving you can take it to any underground and hand it back in for a refund on any money left on the card and your £5 deposit back.
We have buses that go to the city centre across from the house. We also have an overground link to East London next to the house. We are a short walk to Vauxhall which has underground station and large bus terminal with buses heading all over the city.
