Things to do in and around Bermondsey
Bermondsey is a bustling and trendy area of London, located very close to Tower Bridge and the greater city of London. Below are some of the local hot spots that will be practically on your doorstep if you choose to make View Studios your home for September 2022.
Explore more of London by crossing over Tower Bridge
Living in Bermondsey means that accessing the rest of London is quick and easy, with Tower Bridge just up the road – 15-20 minute walk away from our new Bermondsey location. The suspension bridge was built in 1886 and is used by cars and pedestrians daily. But it’s also available to tour – visit the west walkway, the glass floor and engine rooms. All the information is available here.
Fashion and Textile Museum
If you’re studying fashion, or even if you’re a history fan – the Fashion and Textile Museum is worth visiting. Explore the ever-changing fashion timeline and discover more through a collection of different exhibits and workshops. You’ll find the museum on Bermondsey Road, 15 minutes walk from our Bermondsey home.

A place to spend an afternoon roaming in the sunshine (or even hide under the bandstand in the rain). It has plenty of wildlife and a boating lake, with the Ada Salter Rose Garden, a designated quiet space to enjoy nature. Southwark Park is just a 20 minute walk from Host Bermondsey.
For a mixture of food, drink, shopping and art, check out the Vinegar Yard next to London Bridge Station and in the shadow of the Shard (15 minute walk away). The yard is open until late and you’ll be giving everyone serious food envy when you upload those foodie pics on your Instagram or Snapchat story.
