Living in Tower Bridge

A Chestertons area guide to Tower Bridge

Example Background

Welcome to Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge and the surrounding areas of Borough and Wapping offer a vibrant mix of riverside living, easy travel around London, quality gastro pubs and artisanal markets, as well as being home to some of the best galleries, museums and theatres in the country.
For some buyers, it’s the opportunity to live amongst famous landmarks that draws them to the Tower Bridge area, in addition to the excellent lifestyle amenities. Properties range from converted warehouses to contemporary, purpose built flats.

  • Central location
  • Historic area
  • Social vibe
  • Riverside properties
  • Specialist markets
  • Well connected
  • Entertainment & nightlife

    This area offers so much to its residents and indeed the millions of tourists who visit each year. There are numerous galleries, including the grand Tate Modern on the South Bank and the White Cube on Bermondsey Street, in addition to many music and performance venues. The South Bank, Bermondsey and Waterloo areas are all home to a broad choice of pubs and bars.

    Best place for a date

    Whether you’re on a first date, a date with your long term love or simply meeting a friend, have a few drinks at one of the many pubs or bars along the Southbank and then stroll along the Thames to admire the sights. Once the sun has gone down and the buildings are lit up, the view along the Thames is spectacular.


  • Parks & recreation

    Perhaps the most famous park is Potters Fields Park next to City hall providing plenty of green space and iconic riverside views. 
    Many people enjoy running alongside the river but for those feeling more adventurous there’s an indoor bouldering wall near London Bridge railway station. 

  • Restaurants & shopping

    The quality of markets, shops and restaurants in the area draws in visitors from across the capital. Borough Market and nearby Maltby Street Market both offer delicious artisanal food. Trendy Bermondsey Street has bustling bars and popular contemporary restaurants next door to independent boutique stores. There’s also a huge variety of restaurants along the Southbank catering to all tastes.
    For a larger variety of shops, including designer brands, the City’s shopping venue One New Change is within walking distance of London Bridge. The department stores of Oxford Street and haute couture brands of Bond Street are also easily accessible by public transport.


    Best dining room with a view

    Aqua at the Shard is one of three exclusive restaurants based in the iconic tower. Located on level 31, diners have an excellent view across London. The food is splendid too and the restaurant goes out of its way to source specially selected British produce. Aqua also offers a private dining option and is open for breakfast and lunch.


  • Schools

    There’s a mix of private and state schools in the area.
    Nearby primary schools are The Cathedral School of St Saviour and St Mary Overy, the Charles Dickens Primary School and the Bouthcer C of E School, all are good state schools.
    Secondary schools include the ARK Globe Academy which has a sixth form attached and St Saviour’s & St Olave’s School for Girls. Just over the river towards the Square Mile is the City of London School which is an independent, fee paying school with separate branches for boys and girls.
