There are countless reasons why London, England, is the world's most visited city. Some visitors are drawn by its timeless historical icons like Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, or smaller charms like the classy London cabs. However, one big reason that people plan London vacations is to sample the incredible array of international food. If you stayed in London for a month, you could probably eat authentic food from a different country every day of your stay. Whether your tastes run to the Soho neighborhood's thick Japanese Udon noodles, or Caribbean pulled pork in Tottenham, you can easily catch a cab to the cuisine of your choice from the hotels near Clapham Common.
A wealth of activities are packed into this triangle of 220 green acres, southwest of central London. You can go fishing or paddling in the park's three ponds, or catch some summertime music in London's largest bandstand. Visitors staying in cheap hotels near Clapham Common can watch rugby, cricket, or soccer, as well as skateboards or the sail model boats on Long Pond. When you're done with being outdoorsy, you can find plenty of vibrant clubs and bars along Clapham High Street (beginning at the park's northeast corner).
Clapham Common hotels put you within easy reach of central London by underground, overground, rail, or bus. A quick tube ride from Clapham Common will whisk you back into London's bustling center, where you can stroll along the Thames, buy some bangers (sausages) from a street vendor, and watch the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.
Cheap hotels in London are abundant and the city is super-easy to navigate, so you can move from the peaceful green of Clapham Common to the grandeur of the Tower of London as often as you wish.
