London Bridge: Living on a landmark

London Bridge: Living on a landmarkLiving in one of the crown jewels of Central London doesn't come cheap, but if you can afford it, a homely abode in this thriving part of the city has its advantages. Good transport links, a great atmosphere and the bragging rights of living right next to a plethora of local landmarks, London Bridge has got it all.

Housing

Accommodation-wise, you'll find everything here, from miniscule flats situated above shops and restaurants to enormous open-planned apartments located in gated developments. However, many of the area's spaces - premium or not - come with an incredibly hefty price tag. The average rental cost per week stands at £445 for a flat and £2,600 for a house so make sure your finances can take such a battering before doing some speculative buying. Those willing to sacrifice privacy might be able to see the price pushed down by opting for a house share although these are few and far between so close to the city centre in comparison to other areas.

Once you remove the price tag from the equation, however, it's blue skies entirely when living in London Bridge. Bordering on Bermondsey and situated a stone's throw away from the centre of town, residents are only a 20 minute walk away from the best shopping and sights of the capital.

London Bridge itself is home to the Shard skyscraper, which is the tallest building in the European Union and therefore provides a handy landmark when staggering home after a night on the town. Speaking of nightlife, you needn't venture far to locate a veritable cornucopia of clubs, bars and pubs located around the station.

Nightlife

Beer lovers will undoubtedly adore Katzenjammers, which prides itself on offering a splendid variety of German yeast-based beverages. Those who enjoy supping their pint while enjoying some cultural entertainment would be advised to check out the Miller, which features an eclectic mix of live music, fringe theatre, film screenings, video art, poetry, comedy, cabaret and all manner of artistic performances for your enjoyment.

If you've got friends coming up and don't want to venture into Central London, there is plenty going on in your local area to keep you occupied. The London Dungeons might be a bit gorey, but for a gorey yet educational take on London's murky past, there is no substitute for a good time, and living close to the attraction means you can beat the queues to get in first. Fancy getting a look at London from a unique perspective? No problem - the Shard's viewing platform gives you a birdseye view of Britain's capital at a height of 245 meters.

Futuristic fancies

But easily the most exciting part of London Bridge is what's on the way. The Shard marked a new opportunity for investment in the surrounding area, with new additions set to include a public piazza, a museum, improvements to the railway and Tube Stations and a regeneration programme for local housing. Wouldn't you like to be part of that?
