Join us for a walk around the Bermondsey Street conservation area, tucked behind London Bridge station in SE1.
This was the centre for the leather and other smelly industries that the City didn’t want within its walls. More recently, it has become a focus for small createch businesses and city centre living.
On the other side of the railway viaduct there are concrete and glass towers but, by contrast, in Bermondsey Street, we see lots of Georgian and Victorian buildings along with a few from earlier and later periods. There may be no individual masterpieces, but we have a truly amazing range of commercial and residential buildings concentrated in a tiny area with very much that ‘village’ feel.
