As the name suggests, Vauxhall, was the birthplace of Vauxhall motors back in 1925 and today it is a vibrant, culturally diverse area with much to offer both the frequent and infrequent traveller to London. Set in the London Borough of Lambeth, Vauxhall lies in the very heart of the capital with excellent transport links which make getting around the city a breeze.
Vauxhall is home to MI6, the headquarters of the British Secret Intelligence Service and has been since the 19th century. As a result of this, the area has appeared on the big screen in various James Bond movies and when the film, The World Is Not Enough, was released the employees at MI6 had an exclusive premiere of the film at Vauxhall Cross.
In recent years, Vauxhall has become a popular LGBT village. With various LGBT clubs and nightclubs, the party scene of Vauxhall has earned it a fantastic reputation.
The central location of Vauxhall makes it an ideal base for people visiting London for leisure or business.
