Vauxhall’s rebirth will put all you could ask for right on your doorstep, but with its prime location, should you wish to sample London’s other eclectic delights it couldn’t be easier.
Just over Vauxhall Bridge is Pimlico, which puts Pimlico Road’s stunning collection of antique shops and galleries just moments away. Just slightly further north are Sloane Square and Knightsbridge, and the unrivalled retail experiences of Kings Road, Sloane Avenue, Harrods and Harvey Nichols.
Follow the north side of the Thames towards Westminster, and you’ll arrive at Tate Britain and then the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Westminster itself is just seconds from Victoria, London’s other major urban transformation project.
The South Bank, London’s world renowned cultural heart is just four minutes away by train. From the National Theatre and Royal Festival Hall to the British Film Institute and Tate Modern, this 1.3m stretch of river is the embodiment of London’s cultural credentials. Just as importantly and just over Waterloo Bridge lies Covent Garden with its theatres, shops, bars and restaurants.
