LiFE in Vauxhall

I spy with my little eye, a place where property is quite spectacular. Riverside views and quick transport links provide a much sought after location, so no wonder the Secret Intelligence Service is located here. And though we don’t know what happens within those spy-filled walls- we do know that Vauxhall provides great parks, nightlife and other fantastic adventures.
Vauxhall City Farm, located less than a mile away from Vauxhall Station is filled with animals who lovingly call it home. Meet donkeys, alpacas, goats and other wonderful creatures, or even volunteer to look after them for a day. The alpacas even have a claim to fame, appearing behind storm troopers in, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’.
Located at the farm is also an allotment, where fruit, vegetables and flowers are grown and used in the cookery workshops and other classes taught at the farm where everyone is welcome. Nearby, the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens consist of fields great for kicking that ball around or picnicking in peace. Regular outdoor cinema screenings are held at the park too, so pack some popcorn and confectionary in that picnic. Seasonal events include a spectacular winter ice rink and St George’s festival, celebrating all things historically British.
