BoroughBase lurks tranquilly In the shadow of the Shard, Europe's tallest habitable structure, and 10min walk to the river, the remains of Shakespeare's Rose theatre as well as the rebuilt Globe and attractions including the historic Borough Market, these days offering organic artisanal produce alongside foodie restaurants.
Even closer to hand, numerous old-style pubs provide hearty lunchtime and evening meals plus traditional ales. Some of those nearby have a beer garden.
For City workers the Bank of England is a 15min or so walk. Lovers of West End theatre, music and dining can reach Charing Cross (with Covent Garden and Soho beyond) on foot in under half an hour. The end of the street is served by a 24-hour bus and is surrounded by a handful of underground stations including Northern (both branches), Bakerloo and Jubilee lines.
Daily provisions are available from two mini-supermarkets (Co-op and Tesco) within about 100 yards/metres of the door, each of which is usually open until 11pm.

The South East England region
BoroughBase offers a choice of zone 1 tube stations, a 24-hour bus service and - because of the way the river bends - easy walkability to both the financial heart of the City of London and the cultural, shopping, entertainment and gastronomic array of the West End.
Central London/Zone 1
Borough and Bankside together form the area just south of the Thames between Waterloo and London Bridge stations and north of Elephant & Castle. Amid the stunning height of the newly finished Shard of Glass to the sedate side streets where Charles Dickens strolled 200 years ago lies an historic yet constantly vibrant inner London district that offers great pubs, restaurants and other leisure amenities.
