Lambeth lends its name to both a borough and district just south of the River Thames, located centrally, directly opposite the City of London and the City of Westminster. Although now considered to be relatively Central London, this area was, a century-and-a-half ago, a Surrey town.
The borough of Lambeth is home to the district of Brixton, a diverse area steeped with multiculture. Birthplace to David Bowie, Brixton is a culturally significant part of London with a rich lineage, particularly in the arts. The grade-II listed Ritzy cinema and the Brixton Academy remain significant cultural venues, and the high street offers day-time shopping and night-time entertainment. Other notable attractions in the Lambeth borough include the Imperial War Museum and the Hayward Gallery.
For those who live in Lambeth, there are a variety of houses and flats on the market. Throughout the borough, one can find houses set in squares, as well as terraces from the Victorian era. Some of these houses have now been divided and converted to flats, and other flats can be found in tower blocks and complexes. As with many areas of London, new-build apartments now contribute greatly to the housing landscape, also.
Various train stations and bus routes service the borough of Lambeth, and Brixton underground station now receives 24-hour service from the Night Tube on Friday and Saturday nights.
SE1 and other SE postcodes incorporated by Lambeth all receive regular service from domestic cleaners on the Housekeep platform. These cleaners are all experienced background-checked and have been rated 5-stars by happy customers in Lambeth.
