Home > Lambeth


Lambeth is a diverse borough. Some parts (e.g. Streatham) have a high population of Asylum seekers living in cramped accomodation, and Streatham High Street itself was voted worst street in Britain in 2002; whilst other parts (e.g. Clapham, West Norwood) are much more sought after. Transport links in the borough are fairly good, with many underground stations sitting on th northern line.

The borough is traditionally a poor one, but several regeneration projects and environmental campaigns have seen it begin to change in recent times. Although not well placed for shopping facilities, there are a selection of parks and green areas to enjoy, including Clapham Common, Kennington Park and Streatham Park.

Streatham boasts an ice rink and bowling alley, and the Oval Cricket Ground proves popular with enthusiasts. There are also several other attractions to enjoy in Lambeth, including the Royal Festival Hall and the Florence Nightingale Museum. There is also the London Eye, which is situated next to the River Thames, and boasts some of the best views of London. Lambeths alumni include Samuel Pepys, Roger Moore and supermodel Naomi Campbell.
