Clapham Junction is a major transport hub and railway station in south-west Battersea in the London Borough of Wandsworth. It’s not actually located in Clapham, which is around 1.6km to the east ̶ it’s rumoured that the name choice was originally a marketing ploy to attract a more affluent clientele.

It’s on the Brighton mainline and South Western main line, reasonably close to London Victoria and London Waterloo. Many routes from both of these stations intersect here, meaning between 100 and 180 trains pass through per hour, making Clapham Junction the busiest station in terms of train traffic in Britain and reputedly Europe’s busiest interchange station too.

Clapham Junction first opened in 1863, three railway companies running routes from the south of England to London having collaborated in its construction. The first reconstruction of the station took place in 1873-76 and a second followed in 1904-10, after which it remained largely unchanged except the addition of various shops and offices to make a new entrance on St John’s Hill and a number of additional locomotive sheds, workshops and sidings that emerged over the years to support its growth.
