142 – 154 Jamaica Rd, London SE16 4RX
A brand new walk for 2017, our guide Barrie says doing the research for this walk was a voyage of discovery for himself and he can’t wait to share the great places and stories he has uncovered.
Warehouses, factories and Zandra Rhodes
This is one of our walks south of the river and a fascinating one it is too.
On this walk around SE1, you’ll see an abundance of converted warehouses, old factories, a block of flats that are as pristine today as they were when they were built 120 years ago and an uber-trendy market.
You’ll visit the place where one of fiction’s greatest London villains may have met a very sticky end. You’ll also find out about two sons of Bermondsey who went into show business but had very differing career paths.
Once nicknamed “The Larder Of London”, Bermondsey is the latest area of the capital to transform its character and embrace change.
Please note this is probably our longest distance covered walk and lasts over two and a half hours. Illustrated, as usual, by historic photographs. It starts at Bermondsey tube station and ends close to London Bridge station.
