It’s easy to see why Vauxhall is so popular – the area is undergoing a great deal of regeneration and is fast becoming one of the best places to live in London. New developments at St George’s Wharf, Aykon One and Embassy Gardens are attracting a lot of attention from investors looking to buy property in London, while local residents benefit from proximity to Central London, great transport links and an area with its own identity.
Vauxhall’s Street Food Garden
Hidden between the railway bridge and Henry Wiltshire’s Nine Elms branch, Vauxhall’s Street Food Garden is one of the area’s best kept secrets. This fabulous food event takes place every week day, with the stalls organised on a rotation so you never know quite what to expect. What you can always rely on is tasty, exciting street food – a gourmet’s fast food treat every week day lunchtime. Our SW8 estate agents are always popping out to Vauxhall’s Street Food Garden during the summer months.
The Vauxhall Street Food Garden is now in its third successful year. The food, like the chefs, comes from all over the world. Stalls include City Burger, Texas BBQ, Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen and the Bulgarian Grill. Try Malobi’s vegan burgers, and, if you’re lucky, you might turn up on the same day as Magic Churros!
Popular events make SW8 one of the most vibrant postcodes in London
Another highlight is the pop up screen in the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. The Gardens were created in 1810 and now form the heart of the area, secluded from the bustle of inner London, but easy to get home from too. It’s just one of the schemes organised by the Business Improvement District, known as Vauxhall One. They’ve tapped into the area’s potential and their popular events have helped make SW8 one of the most vibrant postcodes in the capital.
