is Clapham South station on Northern line 9 considered a zone 2 or zone 3 tube station?

The hotel I booked use this station a lot, when I travel to those main attractions in London, shall I get a 1-2 zone ticket or 1-4 zone ticket to cover it?
From the London tube map provided, it is right on the edge of zone2 and zone3, so I am very confused.

Thanks in advance for your guys help.

It is in both. Now confused even more? The Standard Online Tube Map - May 2022(a), shows South Clapham surrounded by a rectangle and the map key shows that it is therefore in both zones. So if coming from Zone 1 and you get off there, it is in Zone 2. If you were coming from Zone 4 and got off there, it is in Zone 3.

Tube stations located directly on zone borders (and indicated with that rectangular border on the map) are simultaneously in both zones, so Clapham South is in both zone 2 and zone 3.

This allows you to purchase a zone 1-2 ticket, which will be sufficient for traveling from any zone 1 station to Clapham South.

Hi Sam, thanks for your reply. In most cases, I just travel between London center and the hotel. So I just need a 1-2 zone travel pass?
