Properties in Tower Bridge

Whether you are looking for a modern riverside penthouse, converted warehouse or traditional Georgian, Victoria and Edwardian building, Tower Bridge and Southbank have it all. When the last warehouse closed in the early 1970s, a regeneration programme took place developing them into attractive riverside apartments or commercial and retail units. Some of the more popular developments include Butlers Wharf, Tea Trade Wharf and Spice Quay Heights. The area is still increasing in popularity, with demand being reflected in new builds such as One Tower Bridge.

Living in Tower Bridge

Cobbled streets and historic pubs add character that contrasts harmoniously with modern, new buildings such as the imposing Shard. Attractions such as the Tate Modern, the National Theatre and Borough Market pull in tourists, creating a buzz — especially on the weekends.

“The market in Tower Bridge remains buoyant, with properties selling in a sensible time frame. The area offers good value compared to other central London postcodes, and being close to the City and Canary Wharf means it works well as a second home or as a primary residence.”
