Lambeth Central was a parliamentary constituency in the London Borough of Lambeth, in South London. It returned one Member of Parliament (MP) to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, elected by the first-past-the-post voting system.
The constituency was created for the February 1974 general election, and abolished for the 1983 general election, when most of its territory was transferred to the redrawn Vauxhall constituency.
This short-lived seat is best known for the by-election of 1978. This was controversial because of a high profile campaign by the National Front in one of the most racially diverse constituencies in the UK.
