Area Guide Southwark Tube Station
This South London area has come a long way in the last decade, now boasting developments such as the Shard and apartments on the river.
Like much of London, Southwark is a place of real variety. London Bridge is home to major office developments including the headquarters of accountancy and legal companies who are drawn to its central location, just across the river from Bank. As for postcard views, The Shard looks out across many pubs and galleries gathered along the Thames, as well as the famous Borough Market.
Meanwhile other parts struggle for lack of transport links, though areas such as Peckham are starting to attract a fashionable crowd.
Setting up your business here
Views across the river and the characterful stalls of Borough Market make this corner of London a scenic one. What’s more, you won’t have to stray far from the office to find a good pub or two. The main question is over travel links. While Southwark isn’t as well connected as other parts of the city, London Bridge station does a fairly decent job most of the time.
Culture and Entertainment
Several theatres are dotted across Southwark – most notably Shakespeare’s Globe on Bankside, less than ten minutes’ walk from London Bridge. The Old Vic is another historic institution which shows a wide range of productions at its Waterloo address.
A sunny afternoon could call for a walk along the river to the Tate Modern. Before even setting foot in the gallery, visitors will likely be impressed by the views across Millennium Bridge to St Paul’s Cathedral.
For a change of scenery, you could explore the Old Operating Theatre Museum on St Thomas Street. It’s a small place filled with heavy-duty surgical tools and antiquated equipment that will make you more than thankful for modern medicine!
For some quality street food, try Borough Market by the river. Some of the city’s finest producers cook a diverse range of global dishes, all enjoyed in view of Southwark Cathedral. The market runs from Thursday to Saturday.
Bermondsey Street is the place to go for relaxed, hipster-style restaurants. Young professionals love The Bermondsey for its hearty menu and location close to London Bridge Station. Village East – a brasserie with a cool wooden décor – also attracts a lunchtime crowd.
You could, of course, take to the sky with a business lunch in Aqua Shard. The level-31 restaurant boasts fantastic views of the city and serves up contemporary British cuisine.
