Area Guide by Estate Agents in Tower Bridge
Nestled in the historic borough of Southwark, Tower Bridge is a hub of rich history and culture. This stretch along the Thames boasts tranquil river walks, parks and plazas, and an array of traditional bars, contemporary restaurants, art galleries, and museums.
Tower Bridge's central location makes it ideal for residents who work in the city and prefer to walk to work. To the east of Tower Bridge lies Shad Thames, a charming neighbourhood of restored warehouses on cobbled streets. To the north is the iconic Tower of London.
Tower Bridge offers a diverse range of housing options, from modern riverside penthouses to restored warehouses and traditional Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian buildings. In the 1970s, the last warehouses in the area were converted into attractive riverside apartments as part of a regeneration program.
Some popular developments include Butlers Wharf, Tea Trade Wharf, and Spice Quay Heights. The area continues to grow in popularity, with new builds such as One Tower Bridge offering luxury living in a prime location near The Shard and Tower Bridge. One Tower Bridge SE1 boasts a 24-hour Harrods Estates Concierge, a private gym, virtual golf, and a swimming pool, making it a perfect choice for fitness-conscious residents. The prestigious development also features a beautiful water garden and breathtaking views of the River Thames. Another luxury development is Royal Mint Gardens known for its modern architecture and amenities, including a 24-hour concierge service, private gym, virtual golf, and swimming pool.
The contrast between the cobbled streets and historic pubs and the modern, new buildings like the imposing Shard adds character to the area. Famous tourist attractions such as the Tate Modern, the National Theatre, and Borough Market bring a lively buzz, especially on weekends.
