Clapham Common is also another great place to run. Smaller than Richmond Park, it is also a fair bit flatter. This makes it perfect for those tempo runs during the winter, or just a steady plod on a Sunday morning. Due to the rising popularity of the area, you will constantly find runners of all abilities making their way round the park. Clapham Common’s advantage over Richmond Park is that it is better linked with public transport with both buses and the underground. The cosmopolitan feel to the area also means that there are a plethora of small little cafes and places to eat, if you are feeling peckish afterwards.
