Tower Bridge itself is an iconic bridge spanning the River Thames connecting the north at the Tower of London
and the south near Potters Fields Park
. The bridge attracts an SE1
postcode and is within the London Borough of Southwark
The area on the south eastern side of the bridge has historic maritime and trading port theme, in the 18th century many wharf side warehouses were built and used to handle goods from across the globe. Tower Bridge
was constructed between 1886 and 1894, it satisfied demand from the growing population and still provides today an important link across the river.
River congestion and the arrival of containerised shipping changed the docking requirements, deeper water for container ships was needed, and consequently the warehouses surrounding Tower Bridge were closed. However, redevelopment in the 80’s and 90’s brought business and people back into the area and many of the warehouses in Butlers Wharf were converted into the bars, restaurants, shops and luxury flats we see in Shad Thames, Bermondsey
Shad Thames remains a popular living destination, there are eye-catching overhead and interlinking walkways between buildings. Many of the warehouses are named after the goods which used to be stored in them, spices and teas etc. Cayenne Court, Wheat Wharf, Tea Trade Wharf name but a few of them.
Tower Bridge is well connected, the City of London is just over a mile away, and accessible on foot, or private or public transport. London Bridge Station is just over half a mile away and in Zone 1 it offers mainline rail services, the underground station is on the Northern and Jubilee lines offering many commuting connections
