A stunning first floor one double bedroom apartment in the heart of centrally located, vibrant Kennington.
Kennington is one of inner London's best kept secrets. It’s an enclave of brick houses and pretty squares containing some perfect examples of Georgian architecture. The most famous is the idyllic Cleaver Square, where locals play boules in the summer next to the lovely historic Prince of Wales pub in the corner.
Kennington is so central that it is reputed to be within earshot of Parliament’s Division Bell, and has been a popular place for politicians to live since Westminster Bridge was built in 1750. The genteel atmosphere and recent regeneration now also draw families, while young professionals in all fields love the central location. Kennington remains a diverse area with a mixed population and feels full of life.
You can enjoy a wide range of cuisines here, from Persian to Eritrean and beyond. Portuguese cafes and tapas bars of the South Lambeth Road are well known for their authenticity. The Lobster Pot on Kennington Lane is regarded as one of London’s best French seafood restaurants, the daytime Ragged Canteen is an excellent vegetarian lunch spot and the upmarket Brunswick House close to Vauxhall serves up an imaginative seasonal menu amid recycled furniture, antiques and curios.
There are plenty of great pubs and bars in the area. Locals love Cleaver Square’s cosy Prince of Wales, or try Zeitgeist, a German gastropub offering regional beers, schnitzels and burgers. The Pilgrim Pub is a popular spot to catch live music or watch sports.
CULTURE & ARTS
Kennington is excellently placed for some of the best cultural experiences in the Capital. It’s a mere 15 minute walk to the South Bank, with its theatres, galleries and concert venues, while the Tate Britain is within walking distance, too. Closer to home is the quirky Cinema Museum, a popular venue for film screenings and talks, and there are two longstanding local repertory theatres, the White Bear Theatre and Ovalhouse.
The Imperial War Museum and Garden Museum can be found here, with the popular tourist attractions of Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament only a half hour stroll across the river.
There are 2 Tesco supermarkets within 5 minutes walk of the flat.
If the tiny hidden squares and greens that make Kennington special aren’t enough for you, Kennington Park is a Green Flag award winning green space. The old common, a site of political demonstrations and public executions, it was enclosed in 1852 becoming an urban park where you’ll find mature trees, an old fashioned flower garden and cafe, as well as playgrounds and tennis courts.
Visit the farm animals at nearby Vauxhall City Farm and check out a range of workshops, as well as a horse riding centre.
Tube: You have the choice of four Tube stations. On the Northern Line, Kennington (5 min walk) and Oval (10 min walk) stations are both in Zone 2.

Cycle: For many locals, cycling is their main mode of transport. It only takes 20 minutes to cycle to Trafalgar Square and, even if you don’t have your own bike, there is a Boris bike docking station right outside the flat. Cycle Superhighway 7 from Morden to the City runs through Kennington.
