Situated on the southern bank of the river Thames, Bermondsey is a very historic part of the city which has developed a reputation for sleek warehouse apartments, excellent restaurants and cool cultural museums in recent years.
Bermondsey Street itself has become somewhat of a food-lovers paradise, packed full of independent restaurants, bakeries, and delicatessens, while world-famous gourmet markets Borough Market and Maltby Street Market are a short walk away.
Bermondsey is located in the borough of Southwark in South East London and covers the postcodes SE1 and SE16. It sits just south of the River Thames and is bordered by Canada Water, Borough, and Peckham.
Bermondsey Street Underground Station is on the Jubilee line, with a speedy 12-minute journey to Bond Street and less than 10 minutes to Canary Wharf. Both London Bridge and Tower Bridge are within walking distance (or a very short bus ride), while across the river the DLR from Shadwell takes just 6 minutes to Bank.
There is a wide range of properties available here, most of which are modern apartments in riverside developments or former Victorian warehouses transformed for loft-style living, although very occasionally 18th-century houses on streets such as Grange Walk come onto the market.
