Elephant and Castle is one of the most uniquely named localities in London and a vibrant area that is well linked to major parts of the city with a welcoming community as well. People prefer serviced apartments Elephant and Castle due to the connectivity benefits. This locality lies around a key road junction in the Borough of Southwark. The name also refers unofficially to a major portion of Newington and Walworth, majorly due to the close proximity of the station on the London Underground by the same name. The name comes from a local coaching inn and the area was known as the Piccadilly of South London n the first half of the 20th century. In recent years, however, it is perceived as a part of the central London zone, taking its strategic location within the London Underground’s Zone 1, into account.
