The Elephant & Castle is a unique place that has had many reinventions in its fascinating past. A centre for shopping, entertainment and culture, with a strong sense of local community.
Over time, the area's vibrancy has been eroded, as it gradually became overwhelmed by traffic and undermined by poor quality development.
Now, things are looking up for the Elephant & Castle, thanks to a major physical regeneration programme that is already well underway. Southwark Council is leading this programme, joined by its commercial partner Lend Lease. This major transformation will see the Elephant & Castle regain its place as a thriving destination area in London.
A lot has been written about the Elephant & Castle regeneration. This website has been designed for those who want to find out what is happening, who’s doing what and where you can go to get involved. It is jointly managed by Southwark Council & Lend Lease.
