A Small Town Feel

Welcome To Lambeth

Prior to 1993, Lambeth was its own town, separate from London. The residents here still think of themselves as separate and depsite the extensive development the area is undergoing, Lambeth retains a small town feel. With farmland and plenty of green space and walking trails around, it’s a beautiful and quiet place to live. There is a strong sense of community, particularly in the more mature neighbourhoods, a and along Main Street you’ll find lots of shops and small businesses. The local Canada Post, LCBO and Service Ontario and the quick access to Highway 402 are very convenient aspects of living in this small town on the edge of London

the details

Lambeth

Lambeth is bordered by Highway 402 in the south, and its western boundary roughly follows the path of Dingman’s Creek, up Colonel Talbot Road. 

The Clayton Walk Subdivision, (west of Colonel Talbot Road and south of Pack Road) is included in Lambeth’s boundaries, but that’s as far north as Lambeth runs. 

To the east, Bostwick Road to Warncliffe make up the boundaries of Lambeth. 

5 Reasons You'll LOVE it:

5 Reasons You'll HATE it:

REASON 1

The location is ideal for those who dislike city driving, or plan to commute. Highway 402 provides quick access to the 401 and allows for faster drives to other parts of London. Avoiding the trip across London can save a fair bit of time. 

REASON 1

There aren’t a lot of restaurant and pub options in the area. There are some, but to find a good local pub or a strong variety of restaurants, you may need to travel a bit.

REASON 2

Lambeth is still on the edge of farmland and forest. It’s just a moment’s drive and you are surrounded by beautiful green spaces. The area offers beautiful hikes, bike paths, golf courses, and driving ranges. For active people who enjoy nature, it’s ideal. 

REASON 2

You will have to use your car for most things. It’s not the most walkable area, unless you live in the neighbourhoods that are close to Main Street. Even then, you’ll probably end up driving most places.

REASON 3

All the amenities you need are a short drive away. Big box stores, small shops, restaurants, a variety of grocery stores, produce direct from local farms, a stunning recent YMCA facility and community centre…you don’t have to go far to find what you need. 

REASON 3

Colonel Talbot and Longwoods/Main are pretty busy roads. So if traffic noise bothers you, you’ll want to pick a neighbourhood that’s set away from the main arterties. 

REASON 4

It’s very safe and family friendly area. Here you’ll find professionals, families, those new to the area and some longtime residents.  Lambeth rates in the top 4 areas in London for household income. 

REASON 4

The high schools are a fair distance away. There are school buses, but if you have teens you’ll end up driving them around a lot, unless they have their own cars. 

REASON 5

Lambeth still feels like a small town, despite it having joined London. The area is still set a bit apart from the bustle and traffic of the busier parts of London. It still feels like small town living in some ways. 

REASON 5

There is a lot of construction happening in the area. Lots of new developments, which brings noise and dirt. The finish line is no where in sight at this time, with many farmers’ fields slated for housing.
