The London Bridge area is right on the southern bank of the Thames, between London Bridge and Tower Bridge. Despite its ever-busy train station, it’s more than just a commuter hub; it encompasses Borough Market, City Hall, the HMS Belfast and Potter’s Field, and the many nearby theatres and museums ensure there are always plenty of things to do.
In the impressive shadow of the Shard, local bars and pubs offer watering holes for locals, tourists and thirsty workers who stream out of the area’s offices every evening. For foodies there are two exemplary food markets, while the best restaurants in London Bridge are often found tucked away from the busiest streets.
