The Ivy Lettings Team Explores Tower Bridge: History, Architecture (and Groceries!)

Named elliptically after the St John at Thames Church, which once stood nearby, Shad Thames was not always the bustling hurly-burly of cosmopolitan sophistication and joie de vivre with which it is now synonymous. Completely the opposite in fact: it was originally a haven of bucolic charm, consisting of a large riparian field upon which horses and cattle grazed in pastoral tranquility. However, during the industrial revolution of the nineteenth century, this Arcadia was turned on its head, as large warehouses were built in which to store teas, coffee and fine spices imported from all over the Empire. The scent of spice still lingers on in the evocative names of the now converted buildings: Tamarind, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Fennel, Ginger, Cumin, Coriander and Anise, to list but a few. Nowadays, the chimney sweeps and street urchins of Dickens’ London have been replaced by City workers and young professionals – this really is the place to be. The renowned Pont de la Tour restaurant is a few minutes away, and well worth a visit, while the Design Museum is on your doorstep. A little down river, you will find the Tate Modern, and almost rubbing shoulders, Shakespeare’s Globe, where you can spend many a happy summer evening under the stars, transported to the Forest of Arden, Egypt, or the Blasted Heath by the eternal strains of the Bard.

You have an excellent view of Tower Bridge, which is a stone’s throw from the vacation rental, and this iconic London landmark spans the Thames with impressive majesty – dull would he be of soul who could pass it by! The Tower of London, erstwhile prison and palace, stands colossal against the London horizon, and rings with the echoes of the great, the good and the wicked that people Britain’s history. This is well worth a visit; the ceremony of the keys takes place every night to this day; the crown jewels lie bewitchingly, restored from the thieving hands of the sanguine criminal, Colonel Blood; guided tours will give you a fascinating and unforgettable insight into the country’s history, and ravens daily hold their raucous parliament. All in all, an experience not to be missed.

This London holiday home is within convenient walking distance from multiple grocery stores, ATMs and charming little coffee shops, with the greatest draw its proximity to the fabulous and unique Borough Market. The nearest tube station is Tower Bridge, allowing easy access to the rest of London and a 15 minute journey to the West End.

Here are travelling times to some popular destinations:

Nearest station (London Bridge): 10 min (walk)

Really nice apartment, great location. Only problem was one of dampness in the bedroom which was not mentioned in the listing. Otherwise a seamless stay and would recommend.

Réponse de Guy :
Hi Adam. Thanks for your feedback. The dampness was caused by a leak from our upstairs neighbours just before you stayed - so sorry for any inconvenience this caused. This has all been resolved now, and the ceiling repainted so for future reservations there should be no issue. Thanks for staying, Adam. So glad to hear you enjoyed your time, you are welcome back any time!
