The draw of London Bridge

Life in SE1

Iconic landmarks and a bustling transport hub make London Bridge ever popular with buyers and tenants from both home and abroad.

Full of character and history, London Bridge has seen significant redevelopment and investment over recent years and provides a growing variety of property which attracts buyers and tenants from around the globe. Tom Johnston has been selling property for seven years and Lauren Felber has been handling sales for six years.

London Bridge appeals to a range of people. “There is always something happening, either here or just a hop over the bridge. It is very central yet offers great value for money. There is a large international appeal, particularly from corporate tenants who want to live in the capital who we attract through our Corporate Lettings and International Relocation team,” says, Tom, Director of Dexters London Bridge.

“There’s a great choice of restaurants, cafes, delis and wine bars all close together which creates a real buzz. The transport links are fantastic, so it is a great base to commute to anywhere in London with the area being in Zone 1,” adds Lauren, Director of Dexters London Bridge.

Properties here come in all shapes and sizes. There is a diverse mix of beautiful period houses which are full of character, together with luxury new developments on the river with jaw-dropping views. Some popular streets include Bermondsey Street, Maltby Street, South Bank and, of course, Trinity Church Square which has been featured in several period dramas and films.


“The property market at the moment is booming,” says Tom. “London Bridge has changed so much in recent years, it now appeals to a much wider demographic. We are achieving record prices and selling to first time buyers, upsizers and investors, all of whom see the area still has much further potential. We attract buyers and tenants from all over. Dexters currently has over 200,000 people registered looking to buy or rent and we are arranging up to 50,000 viewing appointments every month.”

Buyers come from around the world and include young professionals working in the City who seek the luxury of being able to walk to work, as well as those who work in Canary Wharf but prefer to live in a more buzzy, happening environment. “The area has always been popular with investors but we now have more first time buyers and young couples looking to make a home here. With the opening of Haberdashers’ Aske’s Borough Academy in 2019 we may well see families putting down deeper roots here,” say Tom. With over 100,000 visits to our website each month the office is often inundated with enquiries.
