Lambeth is a borough in central London. The beauty of Lambeth is that is very residential but also very close to the most iconic sights of London.
Located a hop and a skip from the river, and all the attractions of London’s exciting South Bank (BFI, London Eye, Imperial War Museum, London Dungeon, Shrek Adventure, the National Theatre, Sea Life Centre, South Bank Centre and many more) are within walking distance. If you want to eat out, there is a wide range of options, for example Wahaca, Brasserie Blanc, Riverfront Bar and Kitchen and the Oxo Tower Restaurant also in the same area.
Immediately across the river is Westminster, with Parliament and Big Ben and the Cathedral / Abbey, just a 15 minute walk from the apartment. Further along, you can see the Savoy Hotel (for afternoon tea perhaps!). For a slightly longer walk, 30 minutes can get you to Buckingham Palace, Somerset House or Borough Market (one of London’s oldest and largest food markets where you can find a wide array of farm fresh cheeses, meats, cooked foods and the amazing Monmouth coffee. )
For those interested in art, Damien Hirst’s new gallery is the adjacent building to the apartment block, showing modern artworks and including the stylish and sought after Pharmacy2 restaurant. A short walk South takes you to Vauxhall, a bustling and lively area of bars and restaurants and Elephant and Castle, just ten minutes away is the home to the infamous Ministry of Sound nightclub.
Next to Lambeth North is a road called Lower Marsh, a nice market street with some cool bars and restaurants, at the bottom, near Waterloo, you’ll find the Old Vic Theatre and the Cut, home to many more bars and the Young Vic also.
If you are coming with little kids who need a space to relax and play, then head to the Archbishop Park which is about 5 minutes walk away from the house.
Getting around in London is super easy. Lambeth North which is on the Bakerloo line is 8 minutes walk from the house. The Bakerloo line will take you directly to Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus, Baker Street, Marylebone and Paddington - the last one being very useful as the Heathrow Express pulls into Paddington. Waterloo station is also a short walk, where the Jubilee Line East can carry you to the docklands quickly, home to the O2 music venue for all the best concerts.
Walking and cycling around here is also easy. You can rent a bike from Santander city bikes by simply swiping your debit card and then ride down the Thames river bank, the hire is one street away on Lambeth Road.We hope you enjoy your stay at our apartment.
