The most outstanding aspect about life in Balham is that it’s not very outstanding. Fairly different; the ambiance is excitingly down-to-earth and calm. Without any city hustle and bustle, the town is more sub urban rather than the neighboring Clapham or Brixton.
For past 10 to 15 years, the town has gone through a difficult period but recovered with an upsurge in the amount of strong self-dependent traders, boutiques, pubs, diners and Balham taxis. One can stop by on Balham Hill at the wig shop; visit the Chinese herbalist for a relaxing massage and after all this go for the Balham Bowls Club, not for gaming, but for a homemade sausage trundle.
