Situated just south of the River Thames, the majority of Kennington is part of the London Borough of Lambeth although some areas do fall under the London Borough of Southwark. Despite its busy central location, Kennington has a surprisingly suburban feel. Close to Westminster and the West End, Kennington’s tree-lined streets and grand houses offer quieter residential areas away from the nearby hustle and bustle, making it a perfect choice for both families and young professionals.
As a result of its superb location combined with property of good structural quality and attractive architectural style, Kennington has benefited from recent gentrification and is one of the most sought-after districts in the SE1 area. Large Victorian and Georgian terraced houses, often three storeys high or more, are plentiful especially to the West of Clapham Road. You will also find a wide range of other properties in Kennington from luxurious new builds and modern homes to smaller more affordable flats and studios.
Cricket fans will be right at home in Kennington with The Oval within batting distance. Kennington Park is an attractive green area which offers tennis courts and is great for dog walking, jogging or just enjoying the outdoors. Cultural enthusiasts are also spoilt for choice with the Imperial War Museum, The Cinema Museum, The White Bear and Oval House theatres and the nearby West End.
The main shopping area in Kennington can be found just south of Kennington Cross at the junction of Kennington Road and Kennington Lane. Despite the main road, there is a village feel with local stores, delis, restaurants and cafes. There is also a Tesco on Kennington Lane.
Nightlife in Kennington comes in the form of numerous pubs, the most popular of which being the Prince of Wales on Cleaver Square. There are also some bars and Kennington’s well-known and much-frequented club, the South London Pacific.
Kennington offers very good transport links and has its own rather charming tube station complete with a dome. Nearby underground stations include the Oval, Lambeth North and Vauxhall tube stations. The nearest National Rail Stations can be found at Vauxhall Station and the Elephant & Castle Station. Additionally, Kennington offers numerous bus routes and several bicycle hire schemes. It is worth noting that part of Kennington is within the London Congestion Charge Zone.
