This is a walk in the area called Bankside. Here we will see interesting, new architecture such as Tate Modern’s Switch House contrasted with the Dickensian atmosphere along the Thames’ backstreet alleys. We will stop for a drink at 17C former inn off Borough High Street. We will also check out the trendy Bermondsey Street with all the new bars, galleries and restaurants and learn about the areas notorious reputation as a former smelly slum.
Maybe finish with lunch in one of the cosy, new restaurants on Bermondsey Street?
