Welcome to Vauxhall

Vauxhall is in a great location next to London’s South Bank, opposite Pimlico and the Tate Modern.  Parts of Vauxhall are included in the Nine Elms transformation plans, which include the development of over 20,000 riverside homes.  Although it is an urban, busy area, there are spots of tranquillity to be found, such as the sheltered, green streets of Bonnington Square.  A variety of properties are available, including modern skyscraper flats in St George Wharf, grand terraces on Fentiman Road and period conversion flats.  Vauxhall is also home to the Headquarters of MI6, the British Secret Intelligence Service.

  • Entertainment & nightlife

    Vauxhall is known for its busy hub of bars and nightclubs and is conveniently located in central London for nights out.  For more relaxing entertainment, there is the Tea House Theatre: serving quality food and drink in a peaceful atmosphere during the day and hosting art events including poetry readings, live music and theatre shows in the evening.

  • Parks & recreation

    There are a number of new green spaces included in the Nine Elms transformation plans, in addition to the parks already nearby.  The iconic Kia Oval Cricket Ground is based in the area and Vauxhall Park is a wonderful green space that has received the Green Flag Award every year for the past 6 years.

  • Restaurants & shopping

    As well as two large supermarkets and a few restaurants, Vauxhall has a number of excellent delis dotted throughout the area.  There are also good gastropubs, such as Canton Arms, which is an upscale establishment with a daily changing menu.

  • Schools

    Vauxhall Primary School has achieved an Outstanding Ofsted rating, as has Wyvil Primary School and Centre for Children With Speech and Language Impairment.  There is also a careers college, Lambeth College, in the area and there are lots of schools including state, independent and Church of England institutions for all ages in the borough of Lambeth.
  • Transport & travel

    Vauxhall is well served by buses, with a large bus station which won the Pulitzer Price for its architecture.  Vauxhall mainline station provides South West services out of London as well as riverboat transport.
