Area Comments

There are very few parts of London that are older than Borough - even its newer elements are older than most other parts of the capital, and its roots go back to the Romans. But it remains a place where you can get comparatively good sized apartments for relatively little cash, which makes it a perennial favourite for the young professionals who like to call this area their home.

Of course, in property terms the Romans haven't left a lot. But their inheritors, the Georgians and Victorians, have left plenty, and this forms the property backbone of the area, at least to the naked eye. For the Borough is about the riverside, dockyard warehouses that have provided it with work and commerce for centuries, and these huge warehouses have, of course, been converted in the main into some of the most beautiful river apartments in London. But inland there are Victorian terraces and ex-council flat, that are more affordable, and perhaps in the long run a better bet. The strong dichotomy of property in Borough between couture apartments and terraces and ex-council flats means there's a huge spectrum of prices and opportunities for an array of budgets.

The benefits of Borough living are huge. For a start, transport links are the best - two mainline stations in easy reach, excellent buses and tubes, and even river taxis stop nearby. Then there's the South Bank - theatres, events, film, the Tate Modern and Globe Theatre are right nearby. Shopping and eating are fantastic here as well, with restaurants along the river and in the upmarket, stunning Hays Galleria being some of the best in London. Many of the top newspapers are based here, and a huge array of media and production companies as well. There are facilities inland as well, with more affordable and ethnically diverse eateries and facilities found in the networks of Victorian buildings that head towards Bermondsey. Chief amongst the social venues of the area is of course the Borough Market, one of the best and most cheerful of London's markets, a real old-school celebration of food and produce.

A mix of locals and trendy, with the best transport and art second to none, the Borough is always a good place to look if you want a dynamic, assertive address in the City.
