London Buses route 35 is a Transport for London contracted bus route in London, England. Running between Clapham Junction station and Shoreditch, it is operated by Abellio London.


When the London Passenger Transport Board took responsibility for London's bus operations on 1 July 1933, route 35 was an established route operating from Clapham Common to Highams Park station via Brixton, Camberwell Green, Elephant & Castle, London Bridge, Shoreditch, Clapton and Leyton.

On 20 November 1940, the route was extended from Highams Park station to Chingford Hatch. On 7 September 1968, it was withdrawn between Shoreditch and Chingford Hatch, and rerouted to Hackney Central station.

On 23 January 1982, route 35 was extended from Hackney to Clapton Pond. On 21 June 1986, the route was converted to one man operation with the AEC Routemasters replaced by Leyland Titans and extended to Clapham Junction station. On 6 June 1987, it was withdrawn between Shoreditch and Clapton Pond and rerouted to Homerton Hospital. It was curtailed back to Shoreditch on 24 February 1990. On 26 June 1997, night route N35 was introduced.

Upon being re-tendered, on 2 May 2009 it passed from London Central's Camberwell garage to Travel London's Battersea Park garage.[1] Route 35 was included in the 21 May 2009 sale of Travel London to Abellio London.[2][3][4]

On 23 June 2012, it was transferred to Walworth garage.
