  • Visitor Information

Windrush Square is a public open space in the heart of Lambeth, opposite the Edwardian town hall. Part of the historic Rush Common, it was formed by the amalgamation of Tate Library Gardens with the adjacent old Windrush Square. The part of Rushcroft Road that used to separate the two areas has been closed and incorporated into the new square. The works to create the Square were carried out by Transport for London and the Square opened in February 2010.
