The South East England region
Vauxhall is an inner city area of South London in the London Borough of Lambeth. It was once in the historic county of Surrey.
It has also given its name to the Vauxhall Parliamentary Constituency, which also includes parts of Brixton and Clapham, and to the Vauxhall Motors car manufacturer, which originated in the area.
In 1998, Vauxhall became part of the borough's North Lambeth town centre, for local government administrative purposes.
It is generally accepted that the etymology of Vauxhall is from the name of Falkes de Breauté, the head of King John's mercenaries, who owned a large house in the area which was referred to as Faulke's Hall, later Foxhall, and eventually Vauxhall. The area only became generally known by this name when the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens opened as a public attraction. Initially most visitors would have approached by river, but crowds of Londoners of all classes came to know the area after the construction of Westminster Bridge in the 1740s.
Vauxhall is a very ethnically diverse area, with approximately 40% of residents originating from a non-white ethnic group. There is a significant Portuguese community, some with a connection to Madeira; many Portuguese restaurants and bars are located in South Lambeth Road and the surrounding area. There is also a significant Muslim community, with amost 6% of residents declaring themselves as Muslim in the 2001 census.
The late 1990s/early first decade of the 21st century explosion in London property prices has led to a boom in riverside construction and property re-developments, such as the large St George Wharf development by Vauxhall Bridge. Residents include John Major and Chelsea Clinton.
The impact of new construction and the rise in land values has created a dramatic change in Vauxhall's demographics.
By Vauxhall Bridge is the central headquarters of the British Secret Intelligence Service (more commonly referred to as MI6), which occupies offices built between 1989 and 1992 and commonly referred to as Vauxhall Cross. More recently, a large complex of apartments and offices has been built to the south of Vauxhall Bridge at St George Wharf. Part of this development includes the planned St George Wharf Tower, which upon completion will be the tallest residential building in the UK.
The MI6 building has featured in several James Bond films, initially filmed without permission but then condoned by then Foreign Secretary Robin Cook with his memorable "After all James Bond has done for Britain..." quip. It is seen in GoldenEye, The World Is Not Enough (wherein it suffers a fictional terrorist attack that prefigured a genuine incident) and Die Another Day. The latter featured a fictional London Underground station, Vauxhall Cross, a supposedly closed stop on the Piccadilly Line now employed by MI6 as an extension to its HQ. In fact, the Piccadilly Line does not come south of the river at all; only the Victoria Line passes anywhere nearby, and the secret entrance to the station shown in the film is on the east side of Westminster Bridge some considerable distance down river.
Central London/Zone 1
-The River Thames, a major river flowing through southern England, is right beside the building.
-Walking over the Vauxhall Bridge will get you to some of the most famous areas of Westminster, including Tate Britain, the oldest art gallery of the famed Tate network;
-The Palace of Westminster, built in the 11th century and still the centre of of political life in the United Kingdom;
-Parliament Square, a large, green, open area containing statues of many statesmen;
-The London Eye, Europe's tallest ferris wheel and the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom;
-And Westminster Abbey, a Royal Peculiar and the traditional place of coronation and burial for monarchs of the Commonwealth realm.

Thank you for such a positive review. We are so pleased you liked the apartment and the area. It is certainly one of our most popular ones in terms of guest feedback - and now you can see why.
The location in terms of proximity to the River and the underground is second to none, but it is always a slight trade off with the balconies. But you were lucky in that not all of the apartments have them so we hope you at least managed to get a few rays of sun on it whilst visiting London.
We certainly hope to welcome you and your family back to the apartment some day soon - just use the 5% loyalty discount.
Thanks again and best wishes,
