South West Four takes place on Clapham Common. Situated in South London, Clapham Common is well served by all forms of public transport and is easy to reach by underground, overground, road, rail and air.

Getting to Clapham Common Clapham Common is an easy destination to reach. There are two tube stations on the actual Common both on the Northern Line. There are also a number of bus routes that service this area. Scroll down for more info. Clapham Junction station where both trains and London Overground operate from is an approximate 25 minutes’ walk. However, significantly fewer train services will be calling here due to major work at London Waterloo.

Important information about getting home from SW4

Clapham Common Tube will be closed from 2130 on the Saturday evening and 2100 on Sunday. With this in mind, we suggest that you use nearby Clapham South (Northern line) or Clapham Junction (Southern services to Victoria or South West Train services to Waterloo). If you are using Southbound Northern line services you may wish to use nearby Balham to avoid queues into Clapham South station.

In order to make your journey home as easy as possible, please consider carefully how you will get back. The route back to Clapham South will be signed posted and lit through the Common and staff will be on hand en-route to assist you. However, there is no doubt that due to the volume of people heading that way, there will be queuing time both outside and inside the station. Please take into account that last trains run fairly soon after the event on the Sunday.

Works at Waterloo station
Please note that there are major rail works taking place at London Waterloo the weekend of Sw4 and a reduction in South West Trains services. You will have a better and more comfortable journey if you use other operators or a different route.
