you'll be quite near Vauxhall city farm which might go a little way to reminding you of home. I think the best way to get to know the area is to walk. You've got the (free) Imperial War Museum
too. As well as being a walk form the west end, as the others pointed out, you're not far from the Borough Hhigh St./London Bridge area, with Borough Market
on Fridays and Saturdays. Its a food market but its qite a social place too. Go for lunch. There's also some good bars that are a bit different. The Roxy ahows films, the Glad is tiny but manages to get live music on. If you go up to the river from your street and head east along the South Bank, you'll see a lot like St. Pauls, Tate Modern
, Shakespeares Globe (not very far form the original site), Southwark Cathedral
, HMS Belfast
, Tower Bridge.
