London: East End: Sights

7. Vauxhall (technically southwest London)

8. Vallance Road

9. Wapping




Directions: See the multimap. Take the tube to Vauxhall on the Victoria line. You are in the Vauxhall area. You can walk to Vauxhall Park if you like. Follow South Lambeth Road and after about three blocks you'll see Vauxhall Park on your left.

Importance: Does "Vauxhall and I" ring a bell?

Vallance Road


Directions: see it on Mapquest. If it's peak or Sunday morning you can take the tube to Shoreditch on the East London line. Otherwise take the tube to Liverpool Street on the Bakerloo, Central, Circle, or Hammersmith & City lines and then take the train to Shoreditch. Exit the station and head south on Code Street. You'll hit Buxton Street. Turn left and follow that east. It'll reach a dead end at Vallance Road. Turn left and head north on Vallance Road. You'll come to a bridge and the sign is under the bridge.

Importance: This is the area where the Kray twins from "The Last of The Famous International Playboys" lived. The Vallance Road sign was a location for some tour photos.

Directions: See the multimap.Take the tube to Wapping Station on the East London line. Exit the station and head southwest on Wapping High Street. The fifth street on the right should be Scandrett Street. Take Scandrett north. On the right side of the street should be a school and pub (these may have been demolished by now). When Scandrett ends take right onto Tench Street. Follow Tench east until it hits Reardon Street.

Importance: The pub and school were in the video for "We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful." The corner of Tench and Reardon was used for posters and the inner sleeve of "Bona Drag."
