A marshy area of market gardens in medieval times, its development began in earnest in 1816. The building of Vauxhall Bridge provided a route northwards to the capital. Vauxhall Motors had its original home here, while the extensive Victorian terraces and mansions have now been predominantly converted into flats.
There are a few survivors from more gracious times: Brunswick House of 1758 has been restored,
while St Peter’s Church is a fine example of work by JL Pearson - the splendid architect of Truro Cathedral and St Augustine’s Kilburn.

Useful facts about Vauxhall:
Vauxhall is an inner city area of Central London in the London Borough of Lambeth. It was once in the historic county of Surrey. It has also given its name to the Vauxhall Parliamentary Constituency, which also includes parts of Brixton and Clapham, and to the Vauxhall Motors car manufacturer, which originated in the area, and possibly also to the Russian word for a large railroad station. In 1998, Vauxhall became part of the borough's North Lambeth town centre, for local government administrative purposes.
It is generally accepted that the etymology of Vauxhall is from the name of Falkes de Breauté, the head of King John's mercenaries, who owned a large house in the area, which was referred to as Faulke's Hall, later Foxhall, and eventually Vauxhall. The area only became generally known by this name when the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens opened as a public attraction. Initially most visitors would have approached by river, but crowds of Londoners of all classes came to know the area after the construction of Westminster Bridge in the 1740s.
Much of the area in Vauxhall contains light industry, offices and government buildings. Many companies and organisations were attracted in the past by Vauxhall's central location and comparatively cheap rent compared to Westminster on the other side of the river. In recent years, Vauxhall's riverside has undergone major redevelopment with the construction of a number of modern residential and office blocks, most notably the distinctive MI6 building at Vauxhall Cross. There are also a number of new commercial businesses moving in to the area including Bathstore, Topps Tiles and Metropolis Motorcycles as well as proposals to redevelop the Sainsburys site.
