With 12 bus routes including 3 night buses connecting all over London, the area of Lambeth, home to one of our latest developments Oval Quarter, is as well connected as it gets. As it's just a short distance from countless museums, landmarks and parks, we've chosen a few must-see/must-do weekend activities if you're thinking of making this area a permanent home.
Imperial War Museum - Ideal for the history novice
10 minute cycle from Oval Quarter*
Following a £40 million restoration and a new First World War gallery, this newly refurbished museum houses some illusive remnants of modern warfare. From shaving brushes concealing plans for a WW1 escape attempt to a muddy, window shattered UN vehicle, the Imperial War Museum ignites a fascination with history while gorging the history addict with authentic artefacts. Cycle from A to B on a Barclays bicycle with docking stations in close proximity.
Kennington Park - A green space in the heart of London
10 minute cycle from Oval Quarter
If you'd prefer to laze around on the weekend, luxuriating on beach chairs overlooking a great, green space, Kennington Park is a park with variety and activity. Sitting right next to the River Thames, and with spring just around the corner, this will be a great escape from city life.
Westminster Abbey - A thousand years of history
30 minutes by bus or train from Oval Quarter
With a history stretching back over a thousand years, Westminster Abbey is everything that identifies Old Britain. From royal weddings, coronations and funerals, to burials of great pillars of history like Isaac Newton, Charles Dickens, and Charles Darwin, it's a historian's haven. Few landmarks in the western world surpass such a level of historical depth and fame. Let’s just say it's worth a visit.
Oval Quarter is a visionary redevelopment of an entire area transforming this once run down estate into a community, set in over seventeen acres of Parkland. With a selection of one and two-bedroom apartments you can be part of an exciting new community that's growing at Oval Quarter.
