The London Borough of Lambeth

 
The London Borough of Lambeth

Lambeth Stretching from the South Bank of the Thames to the suburbs of Streatham and Norwood, Lambeth is bursting with exciting attractions. Brixton, one of the borough's most multi-cultural areas has a thriving shopping centre and market selling ethnic foods, household goods, jewellery and second-hand goods. Its thriving nightlife makes it the heart of London's urban scene, and it also has the best live venue in London, the Brixton Academy. Another part of the borough, Kennington, is famous for the Oval Cricket Ground, where county and test cricket matches are played. Famous local figures include Charlie Chaplin who was born there in 1889.
