Bankside & Bermondsey Local Information

Estate Agents Bankside & Bermondsey

These parts of the South Bank have some of London’s most historic buildings, having escaped the bomb damage that ravaged the rest of the area during the war.

Charles Dickens spent much of his childhood in the district, adding further to the other reminders of London’s past such as the Clink Museum. In stark contrast, the hyper-modern buildings of the City are seen directly across the river.

Convenient for the Docklands as well as the City, and with easy access to many cultural and leisure attractions, this has proved one of the growth areas in the residential housing market of recent times.
