An Introduction to Borough
Much like most of the south bank of the Thames, Borough, also known as ‘The Borough’, has seen extensive regeneration in the last decade. It is an area of mixed development, with major office blocks, university accommodation, and high value gated communities, all sitting side by side. This area is a residential, and gastronomical, delight.
