5 South London Boroughs That ISLAND Residents Should Explore

The luxurious and well-equipped Penthouses In Croydon that constitute the ISLAND development aren't merely attractive in their own right. That's because they also leave their residents well-placed to investigate corners of the capital that haven't always been given their fair due.

Here are just five south London boroughs that are home to a host of often unsung attractions.

1. Sutton

Situated to the west of Croydon, Sutton has long been hailed as one of the safest London boroughs.

However, it also offers no shortage of cultural interest, encompassing such sites as the Honeywood Museum in Carshalton and several fascinating pieces of public art, including the “Millennium Dial” in Sutton town centre.

2. Southwark

Few London boroughs can boast such a broad range of heavyweight cultural attractions as Southwark, thanks to the legendary South Bank being partly contained within it.

Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre are in close proximity to each other near the Thames, while the borough is also home to the Dulwich Picture Gallery and Imperial War Museum.

3. Greenwich

Greenwich will always be irrevocably associated with the designation Greenwich Mean Time, or GMT.

It is the traditional location of the Prime Meridian, on which all Coordinated Universal Time is based, with the Royal Observatory having played an instrumental role in the history of astronomy and navigation. Built in the late 17th century, it is now a museum.

4. Richmond

Everywhere one looks in this borough, it seems there are new attractions to be found, ranging from Kew Gardens and Hampton Court Palace to Richmond Theatre and Twickenham Stadium, the latter world-famous for hosting the home test matches of the England national rugby union team.

Slightly more obscure must-visit sites, meanwhile, include the volunteer-run Twickenham Museum and Orleans House Gallery, which displays art from the borough's collection.

5. Lambeth

Forming part of inner London, Lambeth – first recorded in the 11th century as Lambehitha, or “landing place for lambs” – is home to some of the capital's key cultural institutions, including the Royal National Theatre, The Old Vic and Black Cultural Archives.

Indeed, the borough is also noted for its high level of ethnic diversity, with its various areas easily reached thanks to such transport connections as the Brixton, Oval and Stockwell tube stations.
