The Southwark Apartment is a newly built block set within a location that is very close to a wide range of some of London's most well-known attractions. Apartments within this building have been called 'the ultimate city living experience', based on its accessibility and ultra-modern decor.
Local Attractions : South Bank, a significant arts and entertainment district, is only a short walk away. The Old Vic, a historic theatre that was established in 1818, is just 2 minutes by foot from the apartment. The Anchor & Hope, a wonderful, local gastropub, is 5 minutes away. The London Eye, which is Europe's tallest ferris wheel and the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom, is only a short walk away. The Design Museum, famed for being the alleged first museum of modern design, is also in the area. Shakespeare's Globe, a reconstruction of the burned-down Globe Theatre, is one of London's best playhouses. Trafalgar Square, a public space that is often used for political demonstrations and community gatherings, is near to the apartment. Big Ben, the great bell of the clock at the north end of the famed Palace of Westminster, is just across the river.
Southwark is a very historic borough of London; it got its name in the 9th century, and was first settled during the Roman period. Located directly south of the River Thames and forming part of Inner London, Southwark is home to many fabulous landmarks, including the Tower Bridge, the Millenium Bridge, and the London Bridge. Shard London Bridge, which is under construction, at the moment, will be the tallest building in the entire European Union when complete. Also of note in this area are its many historic places of worship, including Charles Spurgeon's Metropolitan Tabernacle, Southwark Cathedral, St. Mary's Cathedral, and even St. George the Martyr, the oldest church in Greater London, dedicated to England's Patron Saint. Another interesting tidbit about Southwark is that it's the place where novelist Charles Dickens grew up, and where many of his famed stories take place.
