Clapham Junction is the UK's busiest interchange station and one of the busiest in Europe, serving a constant stream of trains to London terminuses and to the south. The station opened in 1863 as part of the extension of the railway network to the south coast, and a number of Victorian buildings and details remain. The red-brick Brighton Buildings at the southwest entrance feature original signage from the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway. Both the southern exits from the station lead onto St Johns Hill, a popular shopping and nightlife street with a number of pubs, bars and restaurants. A ten minute walk from the station will take you to Battersea Arts Centre, a theatre and performance space that is also home to the annual Battersea Beer Festival. Clapham Junction is also close to three of south London's best known green spaces: Clapham Common, Wandsworth Common and Battersea Park.

Clapham Junction's 17 platforms are connected by a subway and footbridge - at busy times the footbridge is a better option, as the subway can become congested. There are ticket desks at the St John's Hill and Brighton Yard entrances on the south side of the station, and ticket machines at the Grant Road entrance on the north side. If you're changing trains, look out for the helpful 'Which Platform?' signs on the bridge and in the subway.
