An Introduction to Bermondsey
A former hub for London’s river trade, Bermondsey sat derelict for decades, until developers saw its potential, and renovated the wharves into swish, warehouse style pads. This area occupies a substantial swathe of south-east London, it is densely developed, and continually developing, even the most seasoned Londoner turns into a tourist when walking through Bermondsey.

Our Local Knowledge
Bermondsey was once a slum, and the backdrop for Dickens’s ‘Oliver Twist’. Now, it is a post industrial dream of coffee houses, galleries, and more bars and pubs than you can imagine possible.
The area has developed somewhat of a reputation for its craft beer scene, locals and tourists alike flock to Druid Street, to sample beverages from the six microbreweries that have made their home here. If you’re craving a more traditional pint, head to The Royal Oak, a traditional Victorian public house worthy of Dickens himself.
