Welcome to lovely Lambeth, a rural neighbourhood in the southeast end of London, Ontario! This small community was a township before its amalgamation with London in 1993. It is located immediately north of Highway 402 and directly east of Colonel Talbot Road. Because of its history, Lambeth possesses a strong, small-town sense of community. Main Street runs right through the centre and oozes small-town charm with small, locally owned shops and conveniences tucked in the middle of a residential suburb. For those who enjoy the small-town feel with benefits of living in a big city, Lambeth is an ideal location.

The residential streets within this neighbourhood are ideal for homebuyers, lined with towering streets and foliage. There are newer areas in the district with less mature foliage, but residents will see plenty of growth in the years to come which will only increase the beauty and value of the neighbourhood.

Jaydancin & Zoe’s Marketplace, the Beer Store, McLennan Flowers, Greenhills Pharmacy, Shaw’s Dairy Stores and many more amenities including hair salons, small restaurants and health food stores are all available in Lambeth. Avid golf lovers will love this location as it is right beside Greenhills Country Club.

This plaza is home to plenty of necessary amenities including Loblaws, LCBO, Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Home Sense, IKEA etc.
The sense of community in Lambeth is undeniable. As this neighbourhood was once its own township, there is a rich agricultural history connected to it. To celebrate this history, Lambeth hosts Harvestfest. This is an annual, community-operated event that provides fun activities for people of all ages during the second week of September. These events include, but are not limited to, a softball tournament, paint night, pancake breakfast, outdoor movie night, community barbecue dinner, golf tournament and fireworks.
