Rich in history and culture, we point the spotlight on Bermondsey as one of our favourite London hang outs. Once an important part of London's river trade, the Bermondsey Docks were the landing point for almost three quarters of the butter, cheese, bacon and canned meats served to London in the 19th century. When this trade boom died down, Bermondsey sat derelict for several decades.
Now, Bermondsey is a lively psrt of town that attracts young professionals, families and tourists alike. London renters are flocking to Bermondsey looking for affordable trendy homes in a Zone 1 location.
