Emily Pemberton "Tentazioni is a wonderful Italian restaurant on Mill Street. Fantastic food. And Simon The Tanner is a sweet little pub on Long Lane. Nice for a quiet drink."
There are a wide range of properties available here, most of which are modern apartments in riverside developments or former Victorian warehouses transformed for loft-style living, although very occasionally 18th century houses on streets such as Grange Walk come onto the market. There are also increasingly ex-authority apartment blocks available, which often offer quite low rents for the area.

Bermondsey derives its name from "Beormund's Eye". The area owes much of its importance to the proximity of London's docks, making Bermondsey and its environs into London's Larder, where food was processed and stored.
The 'Bermondsey Village' area centred on Bermondsey Street has seen an upsurge in artistic and commercial activity in recent years.

Hang out at… 40 Maltby Street for a pesticide-free glass of languedoc. Bermondsey Street is home to a succession of hipster joints: start at Pizarro at the bottom, and work your way up past Zucca and the rest.
London Buses routes 47, 188, 381 and C10 and night routes N199 and N381 serve the station.
Where to buy It's a tale of two cities in terms of property, too. Poshest are the patches of "old city" not bombed and redeveloped since the 40s: Bermondsey Street is fanciest, all lofts and Georgiana; more lofts around Maltby Street. More affordable, but distant, is the less precious parade on Lower Tower Bridge Road and around The Grange. Pretty much the rest is postwar council. Everything gets cheaper south and east.

If you’re after a restaurant for a very special occasion, look no further than elegant dining spot Le Pont de la Tour near Tower Bridge. Situated in a converted former tea warehouse by the river, it was the dining spot of choice for Tony Blair and the Clintons back in the 1990s, and still draws a very well-heeled crowd for excellent French seafood.
London has undergone somewhat of a craft beer revolution in the last few years, and the independent Bottle Shop in Bermondsey is bravely fighting the cause against mass-produced bottles with their extensive selection of craft beers from the UK and abroad.

Embrace Bermondsey like a true food-loving local with a visit to the popular B Street Deli, which serves an eclectic range of fine foods from crisp French pastries to exclusive oils.

In the 18th century, the discovery of a spring from the river Neckinger in the area led to the development of Bermondsey Spa, as the area between Grange and Jamaica Roads called Spa Road commemorates. A new church was built for the growing population of the area, and named St John Horsleydown.
