Leaving the long touristic queues behind to get their birdeye view from the sharp Shard, we are heading down along St Thomas Street. South London with its street markets has traditionally been a foodie’s destination for a Saturday, but Bermondsey has now way more to offer.
High end culinary establishments have given the green light and the cultural institutions, great architectural features on this forgotten side of London satisfy the most demanding eyes and tongues.
The White Cube gallery and the London Fashion and Textile museum stand great and small coffee shops and cute restos offering nibbles, pastries and winter warmers sit in a row increasing even more the options someone has in a very short strip of road.
Still not convinced?
If you want to go out of the beaten path, Maltby Street market (http://www.maltby.st/) along the Ropewalk is your to-go path for the day. Stalls with Michelin starred compositions and cosy wineries under the rail arches is the hidden hangout spot of the area.
Don’t miss out the Lassco shop (https://www.lassco.co.uk/locations/ropewalk/). Vintage ceramics, mixed with enamel mugs and expensive mirrors and trays lead to a communal table for your getogethers offering great dining options for you and your guests.
