Bermondsey Area Guide
A historic riverside community on the edge of the City. Stretching along the river from Tower Bridge to Rotherhithe, the area is a mix of stoic locals and City workers who appreciate the clean air on the Thames, the ability to walk into the City and the fabulous mix of architecture as you walk from street to street.
Where are we?
On the south eastern edge of the City, Bermondsey stretches along the south bank of the river from Tower Bridge to Rotherhithe, taking in Shad Thames and the iconic Bermondsey railway arches.
Why should I buy here?
There is a campaign to reclassify Bermondsey station as Zone 1 which means cheaper rides into central, while the redevelopment of Bermondsey Spa and the old Peak Frean Biscuit Factory will bring a young vibrant audience and new amenities
What can I buy here?
There is a wide choice of property in Bermondsey to suit all budgets. The streets around Shad Thames are full of historic warehouse conversions under the gaze of Tower Bridge. There are new builds around Bermondsey Spa, 80s / 90s built properties littered throughout interspersed between post-war developments that sprung up in the wake of the Bermondsey’s war devastation.
Where can I go out?
The Bermondsey Beer Mile is a loose amalgamation of brewery bars and bottle shops, located along Bermondsey’s historic railway arches, are shared at weekends with the vibrant Maltby Street Market. In addition Bermondsey houses a 15,000sqft climbing wall in a former Damien Hurst gallery and its very own go cart track.
How about going out for a meal?
