Balham, known as the "gateway to the south" offers a variety of interesting history, and this tour will show you memorial artwork commemorating the deaths from Balham's World War II attack, as well as which well known block of flats was used by the foreign office during World War II. The hour long tour of Balham will take you to the historical Balham station, up Balham Hill and finishing on the southern side of Clapham Common.
On route, don't forget to pop into our Balham & Clapham South office to pick up your free frisbee, and visit our partner cafe, Bertie & Boo at 162 Balham High Road SW12 9BW for a complimentary cup of tea and a sweet treat.
Along the way, you will have an opportunity to experience what the area looked like just after it was bombed, using an old library photo. Click here to download the picture.
