Living & Property In Waterloo

Waterloo is part of the London Borough of Lambeth and is connected to the Strand on the north bank of the River Thames by Waterloo Bridge, which was built to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. The area is well serviced by public transport with Waterloo and Waterloo East mainline stations and tube stops at Waterloo, Lambeth North, and Southwark. Situated just across the water is Charing Cross mainline station and the tube stops of Westminster, Embankment and Charing Cross. 


Waterloo, famously named after the Battle of Waterloo, has grown rapidly over recent centuries. Formerly marshland punctuated by picturesque cottages, pleasure gardens and circuses, Waterloo sprang to life when Waterloo Bridge was opened in 1817. The marsh was subsequently drained and the land was quickly developed into small houses and shops.

Waterloo’s most famous landmark, alongside the bridge, is the busy mainline station which opened in 1848 and is a thoroughfare for commuters from the south. This led to even more people moving into the area and more houses and buildings sprung up. Today the area surrounding Waterloo is particularly popular with tourists and those looking for convenient housing within close reach of both the city and the mainline services to the south.

Things to do in South Bank

Due to its proximity to the capital’s vibrant South Bank, there’s plenty to do in and around Waterloo. The Southwark Playhouse hosts productions old and new, the Globe Theatre is a reconstruction of the original open-air playhouse and further well-established theatres include The Old Vic and The National Theatre. Other cultural highlights include the Bankside Gallery which is home to a fine range of prints and watercolour paintings, the world-famous Tate Modern, based in the former Bankside Power Station, The London Eye, the Royal Festival Hall, Vinopolis and BFI IMAX.

The history box is ticked in the form of the Golden Hinde, the original ship of Sir Francis Drake which is now a living museum with regular guided tours, and HMS Belfast which is moored in between Tower Bridge and London Bridge. Food and drink enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with the nearby Borough Market, representing the jewel in the area’s culinary crown. The Market has thrived in the area for 20 centuries and is a haven for food lovers and those who enjoy a good haggle. Elsewhere, there’s the Oxo Tower Restaurant, Bar and Brasserie, Fish! which specialises in fresh, sustainable and fairly priced fish dishes and the luxurious Le Pont de la Tour.

Waterloo Property

Property in Waterloo is mainly populated by young professionals or politicians who can enjoy easy access to Westminster. However, it is also one of London's most overlooked residential areas and is architecturally very varied with two-storey Georgian houses and railway cottages, period conversion apartments, modern riverside developments and purpose-built mansion apartment blocks close to County Hall.

Flats to rent in Waterloo are highly sought-after, particularly those overlooking the river. Albert Embankment, for example, is a collection of apartment buildings to the west of Westminster, between Lambeth Bridge and Vauxhall Bridge, namely Parliament View, Salamanca Square, a re-development of the British Steel Headquarters, Salamanca Tower and Peninsula Heights. In addition to stunning views across the river, these apartments are fitted to an extremely high standard with modern, contemporary bathrooms and kitchens.

Elsewhere, Westminster Bridge Road is home to a number of executive apartments, the SACO Waterloo Apartments offer bright, light and spacious rooms with floor to ceiling windows, and The Whitehouse is a luxury South Bank development which benefits from an on-site gym, swimming pool and 24 hour porter facilities. The apartments here are furnished to a high specification with brand new wooden flooring and air conditioning.
