Located in the Borough of Southwark, on the southern bank of the Thames, Bermondsey is a historic part of the city which has developed a reputation for stylish warehouse apartments, exquisite restaurants and museums in the past years. Bermondsey Street itself has become a centre for food-lovers, inhabited by restaurants, pastry shops and delicatessens, and let us not forget about the well-known gourmet markets Borough Market and Maltby Street Market. Locals are mostly young professionals or affluent, who can normally be found having a nice time in one of the many coffee shops, delis and galleries.
Find a room to rent in Bermondsey
There are 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. There are also increasingly ex-authority apartment blocks available, which often offer quite low rents for the area and shared apartments venues for lowering rental costs even more.
Besides the gastronomical and cultural events in Bermondsey, the area’s main appeal is its transport links. Bermondsey is ideal for commuting young professionals, as Bermondsey Street Underground Station served by the Jubilee line, which means a 12 minute journey to Bond Street and less than 10 minutes to Canary Wharf.
