Located in inner city London, Vauxhall is part of the London Borough of Lambeth. The history of Vauxhall is somewhat uncertain as there is absolutely no mention of the district in the Domesday Book. Even today, there remains some confusion, as the Vauxhall Parliamentary Constituency also contains large parts of Brixton and Clapham.
It is believed that Vauxhall became known as a district in its own right thanks to the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, established during the 18th century.
Vauxhall is now a vital transport link for Central London. The district, however, was destroyed during World War Two and has never really recovered as a prominent residential district. For this reason, Vauxhall remains, for most people, a transport location and not particularly somewhere to stay or live.
