Vauxhall, UK - London, Home of Thames View
Vauxhall is a mixed commercial and residential district of southwest London and offers. It’s in the busy, urban heart of the city, with a location that is hard to beat - near the Thames, opposite the Tate Britain and in walking distance to Waterloo.
From the area you have an easy commute to just about anywhere, and the riverside location provides a great space to clear your head with views of the waterfront. Fans of James Bond movies will recognize one of the massive buildings here: Britain's secret intelligence services.
Vauxhall is bordered on the north by Lambeth, on the east by Kennington, on the south by Stockwell, and on the west by the Thames.
