Living in Balham

Welcome to Balham

Balham’s south London location isn’t just boosted by its proximity to three of the capital’s commons. Row after row of Victorian and Edwardian period properties pair with excellent schooling and community hubs to make an ideal location for young families. Couples and professionals will of course benefit from the transport links that come with living in Balham, but the markets, restaurants and bars round out the amenities and make it a solid rival to nearby neighbourhoods.

Did you know?

Outstanding outdoor facilities

Balham is close to three green spaces: Clapham Common, Wandsworth Common and Tooting Bec Common, home to the largest lido in the UK.

Celebrity connections

Grammy award-winner Adele attended the popular Chestnut Grove School. Screen star Margaret Rutherford was born in Balham.

Brilliant transport links

Oxford Circus is just 20 minutes away on the Northern line. Heathrow is just under an hour by car.

The best of Balham: things to do

You’ll always eat well in Balham. Pubs here are renowned for their Sunday roasts, but smaller plates can be found for an after-work bite. Mid-week? It has to be Italian. And the weekend brunches come with great coffee.

The Bedford

When it comes to pubs in Balham, The Bedford manages to tread the finest of lines between gastropub go-to and a traditional Sunday roast stalwart. The fact it serves a pleasingly on-trend menu, along with regular live music and comedy acts, elevates it a notch further.

Ciullosteria

Ciullosteria is a small slice of Italy tucked away on Balham High Road. The recipes and surroundings are authentic, the prices tailor-made for a mid-week meal and the seasonal produce keeps the menu fresh. Crisp, thin pizzas are the real hit here, although the homemade pasta dishes should not be overlooked.

The Umi

This Balham sushi spot may be small, but it more than delivers on flavour. In keeping with its petite size, The Umi’s menu favours the Izakaya branch of Japanese cooking: small plates steeped in flavour and style that please the eye as well as the tastebuds.

Balham locals are spoilt for choice when it comes to pubs and bars. Craft ales and locally sourced ciders are crowd pleasers, yet swish cocktails do crop up in the most unlikely places.

Balham Bowls Club

Ramsden Road’s bowling club is still a community hub, albeit one that now offers a very different pastime. Reminders of the venue’s sporting past adorn the walls but gone are the days of the bowls crowd, now replaced by a committed locale that knows its locally brewed beers. The place in Balham to relish a top-class ale.

Lost & Found

The cocktail menu at Lost & Found may be short on the classics, but that’s all part of the charm of this small, but lively, bar on Bedford Hill. The bar’s quirky mixology pairs nicely with its sourdough pizzas. Don’t miss the chance to order a bespoke cocktail from the skilled bartenders.

The Cyclist

This modern bar is always well worth a visit. Equally as good for post-work drinks, a long Sunday lunch or an alfresco small-batch gin, the drinks menu is a reassuring mix of artisan distilleries combined with high quality imports. Be sure to make the most of the terrace - perfect for watching Balham life pass by.

Weekends in Balham have always been entertainment-filled and lively. Drop in on a legendary comedy night, catch a live music gig or see a big screen hit from a plush sofa, all without even leaving the neighbourhood.

Banana Cabaret

This unassuming cabaret room at The Bedford pub has been hosting weekend comedy shows for 37 years. Known as the spot that launched the careers of Eddie Izzard and Mark Thomas, Banana Cabaret is the place to catch the next big name in comedy. Don’t miss the annual Balham Comedy Festival.

The Exhibit

Balham’s independent cinema offers the chance to see movies in style. Plump sofas in the boutique cinema set the scene for big screen genres that range from arthouse niche to feel-good musicals you can sing along to. The ‘Ginema’ screenings, which pair the classics with a G&T, are always a hit.

Hagen & Hyde

Located on Balham High Street, Hagen & Hyde brings entertainment to Balham every weekend with live music and DJ sets. Tanqueray gin cocktails and real ales shore up the drinks menu, with hearty burgers always proving popular. For something a little quieter, the Monday night quiz sees teams battle it out over brainteasers.

If you like to keep active, Balham’s green spaces come with plenty of options. A swim in the Tooting Bec Lido might be seasonal, but an art class from a resident artist goes ahead whatever the weather.

Balham Farmers Market

Every Saturday, the grounds of Henry Cavendish Primary School fill with stalls selling seasonal produce. Organic vegetables nicely balance out the host of treats on offer. Vendors bring fish, game, caviar, honey and artisan products for Balham’s residents to browse.

Tooting Bec Common

This south London common may be blessed with oaks and grassland, but the tennis courts and historic spots round it out to a fully-fledged destination. Head to the lake for birdwatching, jog along a tree avenue planted in the 1600s or picnic in the grasslands to get away from it all.

Gallery Midnight

Head to Gallery Midnight to find Balham artist Johny Midnight busily painting at his easel. His prints of local London life are colourful depictions of the capital, but it’s his art classes that give Balham residents of all ages the chance to paint everything from abstract to landscapes.

Property in Balham

Residents are drawn to Balham for its streets of Victorian and Edwardian properties, which make for a gorgeous family home or a spacious, characterful base for professional sharers. Homes in what is locally known as Abbeville Village, the streets of Victorian properties surrounding Abbeville Road, always go at a premium. Anywhere ‘Between the Commons’ is also considered a prime Balham location, as residents get to enjoy more than their fair share of green space on their doorstep.
