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.
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.
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.
