A multi-layered side to the South Bank

There's a great deal to do and see in south east London, and Bermondsey is at the centre of it all. The district itself boasts a wealth of interesting places, from its historical architecture dating back as far as the 17th century - including the church of St Mary Magdalen in Bermondsey Street - to its antiques market and textiles museum. Meanwhile, the rest of the capital's many iconic attractions remain within easy reach.

A night on the town...

London's famous Ministry of Sound is located in Nearby Elephant & Castle - an opportunity most clubbers would be eager to take up. Bermondsey itself is a lively part of town, with all manner of excellent pubs, clubs and other venues, such as The Scoop riverside amphitheatre, lining its wharves.
