Stockwell is located in the London Borough of Lambeth and it is now considered one of the city's most up-and-coming areas, owing to its close proximity to central London, excellent transport links, and diverse ethnic and cultural mix.
Stockwell and neighbouring South Lambeth are home to London’s biggest Portuguese communities, with the area being known as 'Little Portugal'. Most of the local Portuguese people originate from Madeira and Lisbon and have established many cafes, restaurants, bakeries, neighbourhood associations and delicatessens. The pick of these is the acclaimed O Cantinho on Stockwell Road.
People of Caribbean and of West African origin are also well represented in the local population, and cafes, grocers, barbers' shops and salons run by people from these communities are scattered around Stockwell. Stockwell is busy promoting itself these days with the Stockwell Festival a fixture since 2001, a community centre on Studley Road and a community hall on Aytoun Place.
Most of Stockwell falls into SW9 and SW8, with the two postcode areas being divided by Clapham Road which runs from Clapham High Street up to Oval. The housing in Stockwell is a real mixed bag, with concrete council blocks, Regency terraces and the recent arrival of a number of new-build developments, a sign that Stockwell is on the up.
Stockwell has an underground station with both Victoria and Northern line access and numerous bus routes.
