"Frustrated at the council refusing him permission to build a house on some land that he owned on Mandela Way, property developer Russell Gray applied for permission to place a tank on the land. The council assumed it would be a water tank and granted permission. Russell instead parked a Russian T34 on there!"

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!

With a view like this of Tower Bridge, Wapping should be top of your list when searching for a property...

What locals say about Bermondsey

  1. So close to work, and loving the Maltby Street Food market on weekends. Bermondsey street restaurants and galleries make every days a short journey feeling of holidays - between the amazing everything and peaceful neighborhood no need to go anywhere in London. My boyfriend and I moved a year ago and could not find a better area to live in. Nothing beats Bermondsey, I tell ya ! :)

  2. Close to everything, fantastic transport links, central London living at its best!

  3. I love the fact that it is near to all the major work areas, where else can you be 2 stops to Canary Wharf and two to City and not much more to West End. Throw in a lot of bars, pubs and culture makes for a good combination. Theres a real feel of a local community which is quite hard to find in London sometimes...
