Clapham Junction is the name given to the railway station and its surrounding area, which is located in the borough of Wandsworth. The station is one of the busiest in the country and that is partly due to its proximity to places like the Museum of Fulham Palace, the Natural History Museum and Harrods. Tate Britain is within easy reach of Clapham Junction as is Chelsea Football Club’s Stamford Bridge stadium.
Clapham Junction is lined with office space and retail shop space, which is occupied by a range of businesses such as catering companies, doctors, healthcare practitioners, heating contractors, design consultants, recording studios and computer consultants. There are also businesses such as information services, building material suppliers, housing associations, employment agencies and charitable organisations operating in the area.
