Kennington is an area of South London, England, in the London Borough of Lambeth. It is a mixed class residential area, and is the location of The Oval cricket ground. Kennington covers the SE11 postcode. The development of Kennington is attributable to the construction, in 1750, of Westminster Bridge. The modern street pattern of Kennington was formed by 1818; the village had become a semi-rural suburb with grand terraced houses. In recent years, Kennington has experienced gentrification, driven by the advantages of its location.
