London Bridge is the perfect area to have a day in London, with lots to see and do with cafes, restaurants, live entertainment and Tower Bridge as your backdrop.
London Bridge is a great place to spend a few hours or even a whole day. The area around the station has had a bit of a face lift lately with a fantastic mix of the old and the new, from architecture to the great range of restaurants catering for whatever takes your fancy. London Bridge has had a complete revamp with a stunning new station and excellent links to all over the UK.
London Bridge station
We arrived on a summer’s day to beautiful sunshine and wandered through Hay’s Galleria. Sitting on the bank of the River Thames, Hay’s Galleria is full of places to eat and drink, with little market stalls selling jewellery and accessories. Previously known as Hay’s Wharf, the galleria used to be the most famous larder of London at the centre of the trade and shipping port, most popular for its tea imports.
City Hall and Potter’s Fields
City Hall is the headquarters of the Mayor of London and the London Assembly. The whole area around the hall has been given a revamp. I love the buzzy atmosphere and during the warmer months, they often have the fountains on which only add to the chilled out vibe in the area. There is also a makeshift live entertainment arena with music and stage shows on throughout the year too.
Duchess Walk is one of the newest additions to the London Bridge area. There are brand new apartments (I would love to own one of them!) and there are some gorgeous new restaurants based on the bottom of them. One of my favourites is Rosa’s Thai Cafe with fresh healthy food, noodles and a laid back atmosphere. There are also lots of food options on the Duchess Walk including By Chloe and The Ivy.
The spending money was gifted by Hotels.com, but all views are my own.
