Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.

"Great 360 degree of London"
reviewed 1 week ago by patrickperbkk
If you have a London Pass, it's highly recommended to visit the Shard. Otherwise, it's not cheap...
The view from the top was stunning as you can see the city 360 degree. There's bar and cafe; however, the seats are not enough as most visitors wanted to spend time there with the view. Also, there are quite a few young...
What a find this was on a wet and windy Sunday morning. The theatre is in the roof of the building and requires a bit of a climb. The talk in the operating Theatre lasts an hour and that time flies by, very engaging presenter, very interesting and well worth the modest entrance fee.
Southwark is right along the Thames river near the London Bridge Tube station. The Cathedral is worth a visit and be sure to approach any of the staff who have many stories about the church that you do not find in the guide that they provide.
Personally, I decided to visit the Theatre in the evening on a rainy day, not a bad idea though:-)
The tour was very interesting and the guide was very knowledgeable with useful information and history. If you have a time and not interested in shopping or any other scenic tour, it's recommended to cost the theatre, try something different:-)
Visited the restaurant here for Valentine’s Day and loved it. Such fresh and amazing tasting food and we left very happy! I’m so glad I found this place I would 100% recommend it and would definitely go again. It’s a very small, intimate setting so it makes for a lovely romantic evening.

The staff made sure to tend to our every need and beyond. Even though we had some leftover food, they made sure we took it home and gave us more ingredients so we can cook it ourselves the next day. The food was very delicious, even for a person who doesn’t like spicy food. You can know if a dish...
There are quite a few oyster stalls at Borough Market but Richard Hawards appealed to me as it was on one side with an area reserved for customers.
It is definitely an advantage that they have some tables so that you can appreciate your oysters.
I like the way you are free to order any combination of oysters or as...
Stayed here for 5 nights. From start to finish, it was a great visit. Nice and easy checkin. We had a nice spacious room in a quiet location on the top floor. Executive Lounge was great. Very nice and comfortable to sit and relax there. Both food and drink were great. The buffet breakfast in the restaurant was also superb....
The service was superb. The location is just so perfect, very convenient. The black line and gray line of the subway are just downstairs. Various buses and southeast lines of the south train line don't want to leave. Delicious breakfast
Had an amazing stay here for the night for my husbands birthday. Hotel is stunning, staff are really friendly and they surprised us with a bottle on ice when we arrived and a birthday cake delivered to the room also! We had room service food which was lovely and breakfast the next day- highly recommend this as a place to...
The hotel is lovely and conveniently located right next to London Bridge station. It was a great launching point for exploring all of the city, since there was a lot within walking distance (the Shard, Borough Market, Tower Bridge), and anywhere else you wanted to go, you could get to by over- or underground train. The concierges and all of...
Clean, quite and super helpful staff.
My family really enjoyed their stay and for sure we will be back and will recommend it
Their level of hygiene with the Corona pandemic gives us the comfort of stay
Thanks a lot for Premier inn Borough high St.
