Living & Property In SE1

SE1 is split between the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark and includes a number of locations such as Bermondsey, Borough, London Bridge, Elephant and Castle, Waterloo and Lambeth. With the River Thames at its northern boundary, it also features eight bridges: Tower Bridge, London Bridge, Southwark Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge, Waterloo Bridge, Westminster Bridge, Lambeth Bridge and Vauxhall Bridge.

As you would expect from a central London location, transport links are extensive, with national rail services at Blackfriars, Elephant and Castle, Cannon Street, London Bridge, Charing Cross, Waterloo East and Waterloo. Tube stops can also be found at Waterloo, London Bridge, Elephant and Castle, Borough, Lambeth North, Southwark and Vauxhall.

History

From the 18th century the south bank of the river developed into an artistic centre long after the already-developed north bank. Free from restrictions of space, censorship and licensing, many theatres and music halls were built and remain to this day. Because of its proximity to fresh water, the area also became popular with industry and subsequently saw a surge in its population.

Since the Second World War, when the area was targeted by bombs, and more recently following the dramatic population decline in the 1970s, the area has received significant funding to aid regeneration and re-development. As a result, the river front now features converted Victorian warehouses, post-war public buildings (such as the Royal Festival Hall) and modern architecture such as the City Hall.

Things to do in SE1

Further places of interest in SE1 include the Tate Modern, which was converted from a disused power station that closed in 1982 to the amazing art gallery that it is today and the Globe Theatre – a reconstruction of the original open-air playhouse which has a season that runs from April to October. A number of other big name theatres are located here, including The Old Vic and The National Theatre.

The London Eye and the Royal Festival Hall are also located in SE1, and HMS Belfast is moored in between Tower Bridge and London Bridge. On the social side of things, clubs and bars are fast-emerging in the many disused railway arches and Bermondsey Street, thanks to its proximity to Borough Market.

SE1 Property

In terms of property in SE1, there is plenty on offer, matching a wide variety of styles and tastes. The river front is home to a number of luxury executive apartments, many of which are warehouse conversions such as Burrells Wharf which is located towards Tower Bridge Road, the popular Clink Wharf on Clink Street and new developments such as those along Long Lane, near to Borough tube station.

To the east is Bermondsey where you can find some of the more affordable SE1 flats to rent or houses to buy. In Elephant and Castle the prices are even more reasonable, perhaps the most affordable area within Zone 1 of the London Underground in fact. Homes on the Old Kent Road mainly consist of one or two bed flats above commercial properties; however some terraced and semi-detached properties are also available.

Elsewhere the highly desirable Trinity Church Square is located in the area of Borough, a beautifully preserved square of Georgian townhouses. Most of these large terraced houses have been converted into flats, although some remain in their original terraced form.

Westminster Bridge Road is where you can find six-figure executive apartment buildings, with the Albert Embankment being slightly more affordable yet still extremely popular. For those on a much tighter budget there are a large number of ex-local authority properties in SE1 located at Greet House on Frazier Street.

We have a selection of new developments available in SEI including One the Elephant and Elephant Park in Elephant & Castle, Parliament House in Lambeth and Strata that can be found on Walworth Road.
