Highlights of Clapham Common

Anglers come to the park to fish in the ponds that are stocked with carp, bream and tench. Cock Pond, a paddling pond, is another highlight.

The Victorian bandstand in the centre of the park dates back to 1890 and stands as an example of European cast-iron bandstands. The bandstand is used for many lively music festivals, including Get Loaded in the Park, the South West Four Eurodance music festival and the Colourscape Music Festival.
