A landmark fort was located at the present site of the Elephant and Castle public house currently a Starbucks [11]. The land was flat and parts were marshy and poorly drained by ditches, and only started to be developed with the draining of Lambeth Marsh in the midth century, but remained a village. Prior to this, it provided market garden produce for the nearby City of London. Vauxhall Bridge and Vauxhall Bridge Road were opened in By , the village had been subsumed by the town of Lambeth. The explosion in London property prices during the late s and early s has led to a boom in riverside construction, such as the large St George Wharf development by Vauxhall Bridge.

This area is continuing to be redeveloped with several newbuilds under construction. Several gentrified areas have developed, and areas of terraced townhouses on streets such as Fentiman Road and Heyford Avenue have higher property values in the private market; however, by far the most common type of housing stock in Vauxhall is flats, both conversions and purpose-built blocks. Some 18th- and 19th-century properties also survive — most famously Bonnington Square , a community that emerged from the s—s squat scene in London and remains as mostly housing co-operatives today.

Also, a number of new commercial businesses have moved into the area. Vauxhall is home to a number of gay bars and nightclubs, such as Area, Chariots, The Eagle, Fire, and the Royal Vauxhall Tavern , as well as other venues often holding special events for gay clubbers, such as Club Colosseum, Hidden, and Renaissance Rooms. The aforementioned Royal Vauxhall Tavern dates back to at least the late 19th century, and was for many years a traditional English music hall and cabaret venue.

In recent years, the building has come under constant threat of buyout and demolition from property developers, as it stands alone on a prime piece of grassland adjacent to Vauxhall railway station. However, the pub was bought in by sympathetic owners who have announced, "business as usual". Vauxhall was originally the home of the more underground gay clubs with the arrival of Crash in the s. One of the most notable venues to open in the area is Fire Night Club, which is located on Parry Street and currently occupies six of the arches aforementioned. Fire was the scene of a drugs raid by the Metropolitan Police Service on 28 April where nine people were arrested.

The tactics used in the raid namely photographing all the persons leaving the venue were strongly criticised by the gay press at the time. The burgeoning club scene and the lure of the more trendy railway arches once made Vauxhall a prime destination for businesses to open up in, including London's only exclusively gay gym, Paris Gym, another branch of Chariots gay sauna and the Sunday Morning Afterhours venue, Beyond hosted at 'Area' club. The area at the time earned the nickname "Vauxhall Gay Village".

During the mids, many venues have closed due to gentrification, amongst them The Hoist and Barcode. Before Vauxhall earned its reputation as a gay village, it was regarded among the underground gay club scene as the place to go to avoid the more commercial nights elsewhere in central London.

However, the market has become more and more lucrative with the arrival of more venues and more nights, and Vauxhall has been criticised as becoming increasingly commercial, diluting its once underground appeal. The demise of other club venues in London, such as Turnmills , the Astoria and The Fridge , have led to the gay club scene to become more centralised in Vauxhall, turning it into an alternative destination from Soho for gay people to socialise.
