Shad Thames estate agents – area recommendations

If you’re interested in renting or investing in property in Shad Thames, here’s some useful information about the location, plus other areas nearby.

Shad Thames
Once part of the largest warehouse complex of London, Shad Thames is unusual in that it retains most of its historic personality. It’s a small area, bordered by Tower Bridge Road, Tooley Street, and the Thames. Despite this fact, it’s full of fine riverside restaurants, cafes and independent businesses. There are also some excellent schools nearby, and several tube stations too.

Bermondsey is also popular and like Shad Thames offers great views of the river. There are converted warehouse properties here too and it has a trendy, progressive ambiance that appeals to people of all ages.

Tower Bridge
The streets around Tower Bridge Road are sought-after and are a good option for those seeking proximity to Shad Thames. It’s got a rich history and several pleasant pubs, eateries and bars. There are also some great educational establishments, such as Riverside and Tower Bridge Primary Schools.
