5 Things to Do in London Bridge


Hey Guys,

Today's post is going to be another one based in my home city, London. I love sharing my London adventures with you and hope to inspire someone's visit! I have previously written about Covent Garden, Afternoon Tea on a London Bus, Self-drive boating and more!

I often find myself gravitating towards London Bridge and the Southbank when choosing places to hang out in London. I have put together this list of activities for those of you who are perhaps staying in a London Bridge hotel and want to find some local things to do and see. Also for you Londoners who are looking for a new area to explore!

  5 Things to See, Do and Eat in London Bridge  




Where the Pancakes Are
Arch 35a, 85a Southwark Bridge Rd, London SE1 0NQ
For the best pancakes in SE1, Where the Pancakes Are is a fabulous spot for sweet or savoury, stacked pancakes. My favourite flavour is the banana and blueberry, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!



London Grind
2 London Bridge, London SE1 9RA
Just at the foot of the south-side of London Bridge, London Grind is one of many "Grinds", a popular restaurant chain across London. This is a great place to stop for a coffee or bite to eat. I love the trendy, industrial style decor and brunchy menu.



Tower Bridge
Tower Bridge Rd, London SE1 2UP

This is a classic, must-see monument in London. Tower Bridge is just a 5 minute walk from London Bridge station (not to be confused with one another!) I love this particular viewpoint of the bridge. There is even a small green, perfect for a picnic lunch.



The Ivy, Tower Bridge
One Tower Bridge, Tower Bridge Rd, London SE1 2AA
Just by Tower Bridge is The Ivy. I love the Ivy Brasserie group, having visited many of the branches all over the UK. I love the Tower Bridge Ivy for a place to have a casual drink or a spot of Afternoon Tea. These pictures were taken in the bar area, however, see this blog post, for another great area to take pictures!




Borough Market
8 Southwark St, London SE1 1TL
Borough Market is a must-see during a trip to London Bridge. This historical market is one of the largest and oldest food markets in London, dating back to at least the 12th century. It is home to a load of food stalls, so save your appetite for a visit to Borough Market!



Tate Modern
Bankside, London SE1 9TG
Lastly, I would highly recommend a visit to the Tate Modern on Bankside. It is just a short, scenic walk from London Bridge, along the Southbank of the river. I love the Tate for its many changing, modern exhibitions and it's interesting architecture and interiors. My favorite Tate exhibition is the Feminism and Media one.
