Costly Balham taxi services getting on your nerves? Let Addison Lee Minicabs take you home

A Taxi Drivers Guide to Balham

The Bedford is the place to be – one of Balham’s iconic bars, which offers a restaurant and live music venue all rolled into one. Recently refurbished, the Bedford is one of the most extraordinary pubs in town with interiors to seriously impress.

Explore Hildreth Street for some of South London’s secret gems. Popular eateries include Brickwood, a foodie paradise (and the perfect place if you’re looking to cure a hangover). Or why not try Heart of Balham, located off of Balham High Road. This family-run café offers a menu filled with goodness inspired by the Middle East.

Escape and unwind in one of the green open spaces, take a walk-through Tooting Common, or get a ride to grab some loaded fries from Poptata to takeaway and enjoy a picnic and a catch up with friends.

Make the most out of your time in the neighbourhood and explore the surrounding areas. Take a 5-minute trip to Clapham with Addison Lee, so you don’t have to worry about the expense of a Balham taxi.
