Community since 1824

These historic streets housed the men and women who were the making of modern London – they’re unique survivors of working class housing on the south bank of the River Thames. Though 2 million pedestrians a year now pass through, they’ve lost none of their charm, feel or sense of community. Welcome to one of London’s best loved conservation areas.

Lambeth Estate

LERA looks after these historic streets and the residents who live in them. And we play our part in the wider Waterloo community.

Quality streets

We're here to protect one of central London's favourite heritage areas, and to do our bit for the environment.

The Roupells

If bricks could talk... our founding family, their ambition, near disaster, wealth, power, secrets, scandal, fraud and disgrace.

How we used to live

The buildings may not have changed much, but the population has!


Before Roupell Street, there was Halfpenny Hatch, the original site of the world's first circus.

On screen

Our streets have starred in hundreds of films and TV shows - from the latest Bond movie to EastEnders and Call the Midwife.
