An introduction to Southfields
Just five miles outside of central London, Southfields is a district in the borough of Wandsworth. Southfields is a fairly unique area of London, in the fact that it was a mostly green area until the late 19th century, when it was developed as a link between Wimbledon and Putney. It's known for its Victorian and Edwardian architecture, including the Grade II Listed former site of the Frame Foods babyfood business.
Lambeth - the young, fresh face of London
The borough of Lambeth is a popular place to explore for visitors to London, home of the South Bank Complex, London Waterloo, the London Eye, and the Old and Young Vic theatres. Historically, the area was fairly deprived, but underwent a lot of development throughout the 90s, which has developed it into a fresh and exciting part of the city. Whether you're heading for a famous London attraction or simply looking to explore the city's many tucked-away gems, you're sure to find something in Lambeth that snares your interest.
