The London Borough of Lambeth is a London borough in South London and forms part of Inner London.
The London Borough of Lambeth was formed in 1965 from the former area of the Metropolitan Borough of Lambeth and part of the former area of the Metropolitan Borough of Wandsworth containing Streatham and Clapham.
Lambeth is a long, thin borough (approximately 3 miles wide and 7 miles long). It has no one single “town centre” as such. Great variety exists in the districts. The largest shopping areas are (in order of size) Streatham, Brixton, Vauxhall and Clapham.
