About the area
Stretching from the south bank of the Thames to the suburbs of Streatham and Norwood, Lambeth is bursting with exciting attractions. Brixton, one of the borough's most multicultural areas, has a thriving shopping centre and market where you can get ethnic food, household goods, jewellery, and second-hand goods. Brixton’s thriving nightlife makes it the heart of London's urban scene, helped by the presence of the best live venue in London, the Brixton Academy. Another part of the borough, Kennington, is famous for the Oval cricket ground. Famous local people include Charlie Chaplin, who was born nearby and grew up in the area.
A long time before this area became the borough of Lambeth, it had been a marshland, which is really hard to believe. Later, the area became a good place for commerce and trade. Rows of older shops and terraced houses survived in Camberwell and Brixton districts of the borough.
If you decide to go to Lambeth, we recommend you take a boat trip on the main river of the British capital. That is a great chance to see the main attractions of the city from the unusual point of view. Of course, there are many tourists coming here for obvious reasons, which makes Lambeth a rather fussy area.
