LOCATION
This short let London home was built around 1850 as a tea wharehouse and subsequently became the home of Southwark Playhouse, a successful fringe theatre. It has since been cleverly converted into interesting and unusually large flats.

Borough is located on the fashionable South Bank of the River Thames and the tranport links from here to the West End and the City are excellent. You may also take advantage of regular river transport that goes to Greenwich, Canary Wharf or Westminster. With an abundance of theatres and gastronomy, the south bank has fast become the location of preference for those in the know.

Reviews

We want to thank you for your help, providing us with such a spacious flat. It is very unique and authentic in style. We enjoyed our comfortable stay. The children loved the Mac Mini, using it to play with their friends. For our family of four it was more than sufficient. We missed nothing. Again, thanks a lot for your help.

Awesome property!
We stayed here recently for seven nights and loved this property with it's New York loft apartment vibe. It is in a noisy, gritty location, being 'inner' city but was only a seven minute walk to the Thames and the famous Borough Market and it has a wonderful view of the Shard. The apartment is very comfortable and is kitted out with everything you need: full kitchen including dishwasher, two bathrooms including bath and shower, computer and Wifi, washing machine and drier. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. One thing to note is that the apartment is on the second floor up quite a lot of stairs and there is no lift.

Neighbourhood

Borough is located on the fashionable South Bank of the river Thames within a short walk of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the Tate Modern Art Gallery. Borough was once the only borough (neighbourhood) outside the City of London - hence the name. Due to its prime river-side location and it's short distance to London Bridge it became a thriving and busy trading area. The energy, the hustle and the bustle, the wheeling and dealing continue to this day, giving this ever popular part of London an exciting and vibrant atmosphere.

Borough Market is famous and worth a visit. It truly is a foodies’ paradise, with food produce of all kinds at hand to tempt. Many of the areas very best eateries are to be found inside the market itself, but take the time to explore the environs outside. There are many hidden gems to be found. Other markets in the surrounding areas are also worth a visit. Bermondsey Antique Market in the fashionable Bermondsey Village is one such.

Ideally placed for access to the West End and the City, there are four underground stations: Southwark, Borough, London Bridge and Mansion House on the Jubilee, Northern, District and Circle lines. Frequent bus services and a regular river boat to Greenwhich, Canary Wharf or Westminster.

But one thing you don’t need to go to the West End for from here is the theatre. Some of the best and most established theatres are to found right here, such as the Old and Young Vic plus the National Theatre. A new and exciting theatre especially for children is also here, called The Unicorn, located near Tower Bridge. Walking along the Thames by the South Bank is always wonderful. This will take you to the Design Museum, Tate Modern, the Imperial War Museum, the Fashion and Textile Museum…all of these are a short distance from each other.

Borough is a real neighbourhood stuffed with history and culture and retains that fabulously busy, marketing way of life that has been its calling since Roman times. An exciting mix of the old and the new, loved by locals and visitors alike.
