    Lambeth – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Lambeth Bridge
      There has been a crossing in Lambeth since 1367. Originally a ferry crossing, it was for many years the only way in London to transport horses across the Thames. A metal structure was finally built in 1861 (Londoners won’t be surprised to learn planning actually started in 1737). However, the first bridge was too steep for horse drawn carriages, which was the whole reason the bridge was constructed. 17 years later it was warped and rusted and by 1910 it was closed to all traffic except pedestrians. The current bridge was completed in 1939 by the same company that built Sidney Harbour Bridge, and if you do fancy taking your pony and trap, it’s not too steep.
    2. Crossing of the Lambs
      The earliest origins of ‘Lambehitha’ come from 1062, it is one of surprisingly few London locations recorded in the Domesday Book. The name means ‘landing/crossing point for lambs’ which probably refers to animals being traded across the river. ‘Lambeth’ wasn’t written as a name until 1255. The first Bishop’s Palace was built in 1197, the bishops weren’t the only notable residents. The dashing Black Prince set up home in Lambeth, heir to the throne, he was regarded as having helped win the Battle of Crecy in Normandy and also was a famed and feared jousting champion who toured Europe taking on all comers.
    3. Doing the Lambeth Walk…. Oi!
      The Lambeth Walk is a song from the 1937 musical Me & My Girl (with music by Noel Gay). The story tells of a cockney barrow boy who becomes an earl, and almost loses his local sweetheart as a result. The ‘Walk’ was created by the original star of the show Lupino Lane who explained, “I got the idea from my personal experience and from having worked among cockneys. I’m a cockney born and bred myself. The Lambeth Walk is just an exaggerated idea of how the cockney struts.” You’ll find them all, doing the Lambeth walk, oi!
    4. Cheeky Chappies
      Charlie Chaplin was also a Lambeth lad. One of the most famous actors and comedians of all time and greatest star of his day, Chaplin often said his famous character was based on figures from his childhood. Other famous folk to have lived in Lambeth include Stella McCartney, David Bowie, Sir Anthony Sullivan (Gilbert & Sullivan), Ken Livingstone and John Nash.
    5. The Waterfront
      Lambeth has one of the most impressive stretches along the entire length of the River Thames. The London Eye, Royal Festival Hall, National Theatre, Waterloo Station, Jubilee Park, National Film Theatre, Imperial War Museum and the London Aquarium. The structures it looks across at aren’t too shabby either, the Palace of Westminster, Big Ben, Thames House (home to MI5, but don’t tell anyone!), Tate Britain and Whitehall Gardens. The banks along Lambeth have also featured in dozens of TV shows and movies, from Harry Potter to James Bond.
    6. But I’m Bored!!!
      Not in Lambeth! It’s not just the waterfront, the area is absolutely packed with things to see and places to visit; the South London Theatre, Southbank Centre, Old Vic, Young Vic, London Eye, Florence Nightingale Museum, Ballet Rambert, British Film Institute, Gasworks Gallery, Oval Cricket Ground, Black Cultural Archives, Cinema Museum… the list is endless and makes Lambeth an amazing place to explore.
