The history of Bermondsey lies in the leather and textile trade that flourished in the 18th century. Fast forward to the present day and those tanneries and warehouses have been transformed into trendy apartments, bars, cafes and restaurants. The regeneration of Bermondsey Square has resulted in weekly antiques and farmers’ markets as well as a trendy independent cinema. All this has resulted in Bermondsey fully establishing itself as one of the coolest places in London right now.
Property in Bermondsey is made up of stylish new developments and converted Dickensian warehouses, with plenty more on the way-this area is expanding at one of the fasted rates in the city.
