Lambeth

A Guide to Living in 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.

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 and 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.”

Noise, dust, constant disruption of facilities

Please review your development:

Keybridge is a lovely, modern development. It will be great when the site is finished. There’s still major disruption in the area and a lot of noise.

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

Drilling work inside the building. I need to work often remotely and there’s a crazy noise inside the block during the day which makes the living unbearable.

Great flat, excellent location

Verified Resident

Love how close it is to west end. Only 4 stops from Oxford Circus. If you have a car, parking is a nightmare as you have to park on the streets. Since the development is still under construction, it is loud from all the drilling, hammering, etc

Please review your development:

Brand new, modern, spacious and great location.

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

The development is still under construction and will be loud
