London Bridge

Home to the Shard, City Hall and Borough Market – one of London's most famous neighbourhoods

"An absolute foodie's dream...stock up or just treat yourself to some great street food from the finest suppliers!"

James Glen

"The impressive development taking hold of the South Bank by Tower Bridge is great news for local homeowners."

James Glen

"Wouldn't you love waking up every day to views of Tower Bridge and the Thames? It would certainly get me out of bed in the morning!"

Where do London Bridge locals go?

Ting at the Shangri-La

On the 35th floor of the Shard, Ting delivers the astonishing views that you would expect. What I didn't expect was the incredible food that was pretty good value for money - £55 for four mouth-watering courses and the prettiest dessert I've ever seen!

The Refinery

An industrial, but welcoming bar and restaurant hidden behind Tate Modern.

Tate Modern Kitchen & Bar

Nothing quite like sitting down with a cold, crisp glass of wine after a stroll along the south bank. The bar on the 6th floor of Tate Modern also comes with one of the best views in town AND the added benefit of supporting a fantastic arts institution. Later weekend opening times make this a great place to watch the sunset.

The Clink Prison Museum

Set on the site of one of England's oldest prisons, this museum is a great day out for all the family!

Neal's Yard Dairy

Sourcing and selling the best of British and Irish cheeses. Make sure you check out Neal's Yard Dairy when you're wandering through Borough Market.

Gourmet Burger Kitchen

Whilst there have been many new entries into the London burger market, GBK remains a firm favourite. The Don burger is a thing of beauty!

The View From the Shard

A really nice afternoon out if you are new to London, have visitors or just want something to do one day. Amazing uninterrupted views over London and on a clear day you can see for over 30 miles!


A special occasion place - beautifully prepared food and stunning views.

London Grind

The best coffee on a bridge! They also sell delicious cocktails and food too.


Very impressive meat dishes cooked in a proper American smoker. The ribs are fantastic!

Aqua Shard

Not a bad way to start your day with breakfast at the Shard!

Golden Hinde II

Is there anything more English than Morris dancing in front of Sir Francis Drake's galleon!?

Maltby Street Market

A wide variety of foods from around the world...

The Royal Exchange

A great place to pick up jewellery for a loved one while having lunch or afternoon tea.

The Folly

The Folly at Monument is like a Secret Garden! Perfect for weekend brunches, lazy lunches or catch ups after work - whatever the occasion, the Folly can do it!

What do you like about London Bridge?

Let us know

"One of London's most popular markets, Borough food market is open to the public from Wednesday through to Saturday, can trace its history back to the eleventh century, but in 1754, it had got so big and congested, that Parliament decreed to abolish it. A year later, some local residents acquired an alternative location nearby and it started up again."
