Just one kilometre south of Charing Cross, Lambeth stretches from the Southbank to Streatham and Clapham, and despite its challenging past and reputation as a deprived area, it is now well established as an exciting and vibrant place to live.
As the fourth most densely populated London borough, one third of its population are from ethnic minority communities. Highly diverse, the area is hugely popular with fashionable young professionals who are keen to take advantage of the area’s restaurants, bars, nightlife and music and arts venues. It also helps that the area is so close to central London and right next to Waterloo station. Properties in Districts such as Brixton and Clapham are in high demand and house prices reflect this.
Lambeth’s landmarks and points of interest include the Imperial War Museum, The Oval cricket ground and Lambeth Bridge.
Lambeth’s population is expected to increase by 40,000 in the next 15 years and the local authority are committed to creating more jobs and better housing options. Those considering commercial property in Lambeth will find this regeneration provides opportunities to acquire shops to let in Lambeth, offices to rent in Lambeth and retail units and warehouses to acquire.
Lambeth is attracting internationally renowned developers who recognise the investment opportunity in the borough.
