About this location

The London region

Central London/Zone 1

Named elliptically after the St John at Thames Church, which once stood nearby, Shad Thames was not always the bustling hurly-burly of cosmopolitan sophistication and joie de vivre with which it is now synonymous. Completely the opposite in fact: it was originally a haven of bucolic charm, consisting of a large riparian field upon which horses and cattle grazed in pastoral tranquility. However, during the industrial revolution of the nineteenth century, this Arcadia was turned on its head, as large warehouses were built in which to store teas, coffee and fine spices imported from all over the Empire. The scent of spice still lingers on in the evocative names of the now converted buildings: Tamarind, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Fennel, Ginger, Cumin, Coriander and Anise, to list but a few. Nowadays, the chimney sweeps and street urchins of Dickens' London have been replaced by City workers and young professionals – this really is the place to be. The renowned Pont de la Tour restaurant is a few minutes away, and well worth a visit, while the Design Museum is on your doorstep. A little down river, you will find the Tate Modern, and almost rubbing shoulders, Shakespeare's Globe, where you can spend many a happy summer evening under the stars, transported to the Forest of Arden, Egypt, or the Blasted Heath by the eternal strains of the Bard.

You have an excellent view of Tower Bridge, which is a stone's throw from the property, and this iconic London landmark spans the Thames with impressive majesty – dull would he be of soul who could pass it by! The Tower of London, erstwhile prison and palace, stands colossal against the London horizon, and rings with the echoes of the great, the good and the wicked that people Britain's history. This is well worth a visit; the ceremony of the keys takes place every night to this day; the crown jewels lie bewitchingly, restored from the thieving hands of the sanguine criminal, Colonel Blood; guided tours will give you a fascinating and unforgettable insight into the country's history, and ravens daily hold their raucous parliament. All in all, an experience not to be missed...

This property is within convenient walking distance from multiple grocery stores, ATMs and charming little coffee shops, the greatest draw is the proximity to the fabulous and unique Borough Market. The nearest tube station is Tower Bridge, allowing easy access to the rest of London and a 15 minute journey to the West End.

Is there a more iconic London image than that of Tower Bridge? Together with the neighbouring London Bridge, these link London's financial hub on the northern bank, rather selfishly dubbed 'The City', to the district of Southwark below. To the south, the jagged architectural masterpiece of the Shard, the European Union's tallest building, towers over the otherwise flat and homely Borough, itself served by the bustling Borough Market, where food vendors jostle amiably to proffer a take-away meal to be enjoyed sitting in the grounds of Southwark Cathedral. Walking along the river one can take in the Southbank at leisure, from the imposing Tate Modern or sobering Imperial War Museum, to HMS Belfast and the Shakespeare Globe Theatre, or possibly all of the above from atop the London Eye! These loftier sights are offset by the quaint pleasures of browsing the pop-up book fair under Waterloo Bridge or taking in a street performance by the River Thames. Being so central is a real delight.
