Southwark is one of London’s oldest borough’s and has a rich history of trade and debauchery, much because of its brothels and the Clink Prison. The area has come a long way since these institutions were in use and Southwark has been revived as a business borough with the completion of More London and The Shard. The old warehouses have been transformed into media style office spaces costing a fraction of their Shoreditch counterparts. Café’s and bars are plentiful as are the transport links with Waterloo and London Bridge Stations being within walking distance. We have rounded up our top 6 Southwark Properties guaranteed to get you thinking about crossing the river and relocating south!
