Area Guide: In Travelcard Zone 2 to the northeast of central London, Clapton is within the London Borough of Hackney. Historical records of the area date back to 1339, and initially, Clapton formed a small hamlet until its division into Upper Clapton to the north and Lower Clapton to the south. Lea Bridge Road and Clapton Pond junction define Clapton's upper and lower areas.

Over the years, Lower and Upper Clapton expanded significantly, becoming popular areas to reside. The late 18th century saw many luxurious country houses constructed, and Clapton itself evolved into a prosperous neighbourhood. The opening of the Clapton railway station in 1872 stimulated further property development. In addition, the easy commute to the City brought an influx of new residents.
