Bermondsey Area guide
Urban riverside views have become a frontline selling point when smart accommodation choices in London are being considered and, in this respect, renting in Bermondsey fulfils the criteria of many. In this day and age, the capital's corporate workforce no longer considers a "south of the river" location to be off their radar and Bermondsey's close proximity to Tower Bridge could even qualify it as an unofficial City fringe area. The arty maritime quarter of Shad Thames has led the way in this respect, but astute developers have invested in a series of new build schemes that are looking slightly further inland.
Bermondsey Works and Greenland Place are good examples of how quality accommodation is transforming the area. Both combine modern amenities with convenient transport links, making them ideal for City professionals and Shoreditch creatives alike. Upscale restaurants and trendy shops are starting to establish themselves in the neighbourhood and rail networks have been revamped. Surrey Quays station is part of an overground orbital rail network that circles central London, connecting previously separated Zone 2 districts while the Bermondsey Jubilee line station is in the enviable position of being one stop from either Canary Wharf or London Bridge. A Bakerloo line extension along Old Kent Road is being planned that will provide even more connectivity.
Tower Hill underground station (District & Circle Lines) and Tower Gateway ( DLR for Canary Wharf) are a just a short walk away from the apartment block. Excellent bus services connect the area with Holborn, the Strand, Covent Garden, Liverpool Street and Oxford Street.
