Vauxhall is an up and coming area of central London, in the London Borough of Lambeth. Vauxhall sits on the south bank of the river Thames, and is a short walk or bus ride along Vauxhall Bridge Road to the busy commuter hub of Victoria. The land in the area was originally flat and marshy, but was first developed in the eighteenth century when Lambeth Marsh was drained. This led to rapid growth of the area, however many of the old streets of Vauxhall were demolished to make way for Waterloo station. Vauxhall is a popular residential area for people working in nearby Westminster. Recently there has been an increasing number of businesses locating in Vauxhall, which has led to the construction of a number of modern office blocks. One of the most prominent buildings in the area is the MI6 headquarters which sits on the banks of the Thames and is a magnificent site to behold.
