Lambeth is the name of one of London's 31 Boroughs. It lies on the south bank of the River Thames , just below the Westminster Bridge.
Originally the district of Lambeth was a small area of marshland immediately surrounding the Manor of Lambeth. But the modern Lambeth Borough now includes lots of other small London parishes including Clapham , Brixton , and Streatham .
Lambeth Borough has a reputation for being a predominantly residential area, and whilst this is true to some extent, it has to be said that a great number of tourist attractions are also located here. One of the most well-known one is probably Lambeth Palace . But there is also London Aquarium , the Museum of Garden History and the Florence Nightingale Museum .
But the primary attraction in the district has to be the vast cultural centre known as the South Bank Centre . Amongst others, this centre encompasses the Hayward Gallery and the Museum of the Moving Image .
