Where to Stay in Tower Bridge

There are a number of notable neighbourhoods either side of the river that offer great accommodation within easy walking distance of the eponymous bridge. London Bridge and Borough are the main ‘high street’ areas, with apartments littered among a variety of name brand stores, pubs and restaurants. Both of these areas provide easy access to the Northern Line, with London Bridge also connected to the Jubilee and National Rail lines. Shad Thames and Bermondsey are somewhat quieter and more residential, with Shad Thames in particular comprising apartments and businesses built from converted dockside warehouses. Shoreditch and Wapping are located on the north side of the river, Shoreditch known for its exotic bars and nightlife, and Wapping the equivalent of Shad Thames to the east of St. Katharine Docks.

For tourists and temporary residents, London can be pretty safe, especially compared to other major capital cities, however travellers are still advised to be aware of pickpockets, particularly in some of the busier bars and clubs. Areas such as Rotherhithe and Wapping however tend to be quieter and less occupied during the nights, making them safer than some of the other areas around the bridge.

Facts About Tower Bridge

London was the centre of the English-speaking world for many years, and, some would argue, remains so to this day. As one of the most iconic landmarks in the city, Tower Bridge obviously has its own legacy and history to match. Here are some of our favourite facts about Tower Bridge and the area around it:

  • Over 40,000 people cross over Tower Bridge every day.
  • Bermondsey was once a spa town, after a man named Thomas Keyse discovered a natural spring in the area in 1770, leading to a boom in local growth.
  • Tower Bridge is frequently mistaken for London Bridge, which is a separate bridge about half a mile up the river.
  • There were over 50 designs created for the bridge, which were submitted as part of a contest. In the end, amid controversy, a winning design was approved in 1884. The winner, Sir Horace Jones, was also one of the contest judges.
  • Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre on the south bank burned down in 1613 after a special effect went awry. According to local documents, nobody was injured except for a man whose burning trousers were put out with a bottle of beer.
  • In 1915, Bermondsey was flooded with millions of rotten eggs in an incident that became known as the Bermondsey Bad Egg Boom. After war break out, the council had the unenviable task of clearing them from the area, removing more than 25 million!
