Discover the best of Vauxhall with this insider’s guide. 

Vauxhall is the kind of area you visit in London when you want unpretentious fun and the people to match. It’s well known for it’s gay village with bars and clubs spanning Kennington Lane and atmospheric restaurants tucked under railway arches. 

The green spaces as well as its riverside location all make for a good day out. 

There are still glimmers of Vauchall’s seedy past. Vauxhall was once well known for The Pleasure Gardens, a place where Londoners went for a slice of danger and debauchery.

You can still visit the Pleasure Gardens. It’s now just a calming park, and home to Vauxhall City Farm. And who needs brothels and quiet spots to murder a rival when you’ve got that? 

Not to mention art galleries, a barge converted into a pub and a food/beer garden showcasing cuisines from all over the world.
