BermondseyStreet.London focuses on the area round Bermondsey St, bounded to the east by Tower Bridge Rd, to the north by Druid/Crucifix/St Thomas Streets, to the west by Weston St and to the south by Long Lane, including Bermondsey Square. We organise visits, events and meetings where you can get to know about the area, meet your neighbours and find out more about local businesses. Contact us to find out more.
Because of its long history, much of the area is classed as a conservation area and some of the older buildings are listed. These include industrial buildings, now adapted for other purposes as well as historic houses. BermondseyStreet.London has produced Trail Guides which can guide you round the area while you learn about its heritage and architecture.
We have three parks, Tanner St Park with tennis courts and play equipment, Leathermarket Gardens with play equipment, the Village Hall and a rose garden and St Mary Magdalen churchyard. In September, there is a one day festival, the Bermondsey Street Festival, when the street is closed to traffic and the parks are full of music and entertainment.
We have galleries, cafes, restaurants, pubs and a cinema. There is a market in Bermondsey Square every Friday (antiques, collectibles) and every Saturday (food). It’s a great space for the outdoor events that are held there from time to time. There are hotels and serviced apartments. Several estate agents on Bermondsey St can provide information on places for sale or to let. Free wifi is widely available. There are several co-working offices and also serviced offices.
If you are moving to the area or have a problem then it may be helpful to know who provides local services:
Waste, parks, street lighting, traffic, parking, licensing, planning
Water and drains in public spaces
We have produced a series of colourful new guides to a selection of places of interest in our area. Each guide is organised round a walking route that takes 1-1.5 hours, the latest will take you around the ever-evolving urban landscape and highlight the contemporary architecture in the area.
If you have enjoyed these walks round the Bermondsey Street area, you might also enjoy a walk in Shad Thames. Shad Thames lies just to the north east, between the railway line and the river Thames. It is an area of 19th century riverside warehouses which was mostly derelict by the 1990s and now has a new lease of life as smart offices and apartments.
