Top 20 Vauxhall, London vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Across the river from Pimlico and Westminster, Vauxhall has a lot going for it. Ignore the rather hectic and somewhat anonymous-feeling roundabout that greets you when you emerge from the tube station: just moments away are some of London's most characterful and special garden squares in London. Leafy Bonnington Square is completely charming - it is home to an incredibly good and ridiculously cheap vegetarian restaurant The Bonnington Cafe and a charming deli called Italo, whose tables and chairs spill out on to the pedestrianised road outside. Brunswick House is another great foodie destination, a restaurant and bar housed in the grand setting of an antique-filled Georgian mansion. Once you've finished at Bonnington Square, why not wander down the road to Cleaver Square for a game of petanque? Vauxhall's residents are a real mix: young professionals, intellectually-minded hippies, a large gay population - the list goes on. The Victoria Line whizzes you up to Oxford Circus in about ten minutes - it's something of a transport hub so works well as a base for exploring lots of different pockets of the city.
