Once most well known for a song and corresponding dance craze that were named after one of its streets, modern Lambeth combines a great central location with a down-to-earth vibe.
Lambeth is an area of London just across the River Thames from Westminster. For such a central part of the capital, Lambeth is surprisingly unpretentious, and this probably has a lot to do with the fact that is a part of the wider London Borough of Lambeth, which stretches down as far as Streatham, and comprises many of inner London’s traditionally – though not necessarily currently – ‘working class’ areas. So what business travellers coming to staying serviced apartments in Lambeth will find is a place that effortlessly blends central London’s culture and chic with traditional pubs and a gritty, authentic feel.
With two bridges, Lambeth Bridge and Westminster Bridge, linking with the opposite bank of the river, and its own Bakerloo Line underground station – not to mention London Waterloo just a few minutes’ walk to the north – Lambeth’s accessibility also helps in making it a popular place to stay. The Imperial War Museum, in Lambeth itself, is well worth a visit while staying there, while many of London’s famous sites are an easy journey across the river; including Tate Britain and the Houses of Parliament. Corporate travellers will find Lambeth serviced apartments a great way to get the best of both worlds while staying in London.
