The apartment is on the cusp of the up and coming area of Bermondsey. The beautiful cobbled streets of Bermondsey St are 2 minutes' stroll away, with award-winning restaurants and bars to explore (I particularly like Village East, Zucca and The Garrison). A further five minutes and you are at the River Thames, right by the famous Tower Bridge, which you can see from the terrace if you don't fancy venturing out. If you do make it out, there is a strip of some of the best restaurants in the world, all lined up along the river in the shadow of Tower Bridge itself. Walk along the river the other way, and you can visit my favourite food market, Borough Market, and further towards town the famous Southbank with galleries, museums and theaters, a particularly romantic walk when lit up at night. If you're an art lover, you'll love being ten mins stroll from the awesome Tate Modern (I know I do). To get around, I walk mostly but there is also the extensive band tube network nearby (London Bridge or Borough stations are best for the tube, on the Northern and Jubillee lines).
Something about ourselves
I am young at heart, in my mid-thirties, a Londoner born and bred. I used to love nothing more than the always-on nightlife of London, but now I find myself drawn more to staying nearer home, enjoying the views and the local area. I'm a culture vulture at heart, but that makes me sound far too sophisticated, when I'm actually happiest with friends around me, doing whatever takes our fancy. A bit of a gadget freak, an art lover, an avid talker, and still able to enjoy a night on the town, I love being near the centre of things and never far from something to do.
