Neighbourhoods of London: Lambeth

London Neighbourhood Histories: The Lion and the Lambeth - LondonFuseWelcome to Lambeth! A unique neighbourhood in the southwest of London, located immediately north of Highway 402 and directly east of Colonel Talbot Road. Originally a township before its amalgamation with London in 1993, Lambeth maintains its small town feel, with many locally owned businesses along Main Street that cater to neighbourhood residents. For those who enjoy the small-town feel with benefits of living in a big city, Lambeth is an ideal location. It currently has a population of 4,410.

Residents can head to Main Street to shop locally-owned businesses like Tom’s Food Market, Spicer’s Bakery, Village Wine Cellar, McLennan Flowers, Lambeth Drugs, and many more amenities including hair salons, small restaurants and health food stores.

The annual Harvestfest One adds to the incredible sense of community you’ll find in Lambeth. A beloved tradition during the second week of September that celebrates the history and brings together the residents of Lambeth and London. With softball tournaments, paint night, outdoor movies, community barbecue dinner, golf tournaments and fireworks, it’s no surprise that this is an event the whole community looks forward to.
The majority of residential homes in Lambeth are single family detached homes. You’ll find a mix of styles, including early 20th century farm houses, post-war bungalows, large homes built in the late 20th century, and new developments that are still being built today.

Home to many great parks and areas for recreation, you can find London Optimist Park, Ralph Hamlyn Park, and Lambeth Centennial Park. Together, these parks provide accessible baseball diamonds, soccer fields, swing sets, play structures, boardwalks, pathways, spray pad and walking trails. There is no shortage of outdoor activities for the family while residing in Lambeth. The community centre can be found within Lambeth Centennial Park, with a fantastic arena and the Lambeth Library.
