Despite its central location Kennington was one of South London’s best kept secret until the last few years. With housing stock varying from grand Georgian properties (arranged over 5 floors in some cases) to local authority blocks, it’s fair to say that SE11 has something to offer a multitude of budgets. The area is bordered by Vauxhall (to the west) Waterloo (north) Elephant & Castle (East) and Oval/Stockwell (South). There are significant landmarks within Kennington such as the Imperial War Museum, Kennington Park and The ‘Kia’ Oval. Cleaver Square is a beautiful location very popular in the summer months although it has to be said that Kennington has many more desirable and sought after locations to offer such as Courtenay Square/Street, Methley Street, St Mary’s Gardens and West Square to name but a few.
Kennington is also known for its political residents – it sits within the Division bell for the Houses of Parliament which means (in theory) any MP required to vote can be there within 10 minutes. It also forms part of the congestion zone.
