Lambeth

Lambeth occupies a prime South London location close to some of the capital’s biggest attractions, but not so close it’s packed with tourists. It stretches from the Thames’ South Bank and ends just beyond the residential areas of Streatham and Norwood. Read on to discover developments that are the best places to live in Lambeth. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Lambeth.

HomeViews reviewer verdict…
“A south-of-the-river location with lots to offer.”

Lambeth’s north

In its northern pocket, you can take a stroll along the waterside. Here you will discover big-hitters like the National Theatre, the Tate Modern, and the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. All of which are neighboured by a good mix of pubs and bars with a front-row view of the river. Lambeth Palace is another local star, a spectacular Medieval structure and the home of the Archbishop of Canterbury.  The Imperial War Museum also provides a lovely, moving day out; a fitting tribute to those affected by the past world’s conflicts.

Cultural melting pot

There’s a hypnotising, cosmopolitan feel to these parts. Places like Stockwell and Kennington have a Latin flavour, their high streets packed with cutesy tapas joints and Portuguese establishments serving fresh seafood. Over in vivacious Brixton, the area’s Afro-Caribbean roots shine, with reggae bars playing exotic beats until late, and an amazing foodie scene that incorporates street stalls sizzling with specialities like jerk chicken and ackee and saltfish. Hootananny is a much-loved hostel-come-nightclub that works to showcase the area’s diversity, with events dedicated to everything from hip-hop to salsa. And we can’t talk about the area without mentioning 02 Academy Brixton, an award-winning venue for music, theatre and comedy.

Property & transport

Lambeth’s residential options are vast, ranging from swish riverfront apartments to elegant period townhouses. Whatever you’re after, expect easy access to London’s centre. Three tube stations – Lambeth North, Waterloo and Southwark – get residents from A to B via the Northern line.

HomeViews reviewer says…
“The location is central and very well connected within easy reach of much of Central London both on foot and via the tube. Traffic can be quite congested and slow, there is also a fair amount of noise from the streets.”

Very close to transport links and easy to get into central London. Well situated close to a few parks. Not too many stores and restaurants around.

Please review your development:

Keybridge is an incredible development and property. It’s well situated from a transportation perspective and very easy to get in and out of central London. There are a few supermarket options nearby but not too many great restaurants around.

The development is well maintained and boasts high quality furniture and fittings. The concierge team is excellent and very friendly and accommodating.

Maintenance could be slightly better as it typically takes a while for the team to respond to requests.
The facilities are second to none with a beautiful gym and swimming pool.
Overall highly rate the unit, and will likely continue to live here so long as I’m in London.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

That the pool wouldn’t be ready for a while. This is no longer an issue as the pool is ready now.

What is the best feature of your home:

The outdoor space which feels like a private patio.

It is a great area with Vauxhall park just around the corner.

Please review your development:

Amazing concierge; nice, clean style of flats. Once the development is finished, the commercial area will give it the infrastructure it lacks! I must comment on the swimming pool area, which is amazing. Gym needs a bit more redesign which is currently in making!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

How much the entire construction will take, and if there are delays to be expected.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Some curtains would be amazing to have, as well as ability to change furniture.

Disappointing

The area is just awful. Rough & full of trouble, many times you feel unsafe because of all the rowdiness down below. Lots of crime, people setting off fireworks that hit our balcony several times – and the police did nothing! It is such a shame because the apartments are beautiful and the views are fantastic but the area is a massive let down. Lots of shops and some restaurants surrounding the building and it’s opposite a park – but again, there is a lot of trouble that takes place down there, drug dealing, thefts etc. Overall it is not safe.

Please review your development:

The building design could be better, it’s very creaky from the wind (especially if you’re higher up), our blinds were often breaking from being so flimsy, we would often hear the lifts going up and down throughout the whole night and we could hear our neighbours footsteps from all angles, lots of heaving footing that would keep us up. The main cause of concern was the amount of partying and noise that we was surrounded by, mostly every week we would be woken up by students partying (uncle is VERY STUDENT HEAVY), and we would often complain but all we got was an apology & nothing was done by the management team as it was ‘our of their hands’. Not forgetting the constant smoke & cannabis that would always blow into our apartment which meant that we could not have any doors or windows open- in the hot weather this was an absolute nightmare as the apartments get very stuffy. This in the end caused us to move out. There is a gym which was small but accommodating for most needs. Would’ve been better if weights were provided, but that’s down to preference. We only had a few favourites Who went above and beyond from the concierge team but there was a few that appeared lazy & didn’t seem to want to help. For example – if you went down to collect a parcel they would ask you to come back. If you want to live here you will have an amazing view but you will get no sleep. I don’t recommend uncle in Elephant & Castle.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

That there are so many students in this apartment block.

What is the best feature of your home:

Views, having the sky lounge which was upstairs with even better views.

There’s a wide range of brunch places, pubs and little restaurants as well as lots of shops like Sainsbury’s and Waitrose within walking distance

Please review your development:

Design and overall spec of the apartments is excellent. Property management team are helpful and very quick in updating residents of news/changes/systems not working etc.Only neg I’d say is building works which seem to be taking longer than expected.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Don’t think I didn’t know what I should have before moving in

What is the best feature of your home:

High design spec, floor to ceiling windows and furniture
