    • About London - Southwark

      Just over the river from the ‘square mile’ of the City, Southwark borough can boast Shakespearian theatre the Globe amongst its treasures, not to mention the more contemporary pleasures of the Tate Modern in the converted Bankside power station.

      Living in Southwark can vary between postcodes and localities, with the pleasant villagey atmosphere of Dulwich districts contrasting the rougher reputations some of the neighbouring areas carry. 

      Those who crave big clubs love how close the borough is to the Brixton and Clapham party scenes, and a growing number are heading to Camberwell. The area is quickly gaining popularity with students and artists alike - bringing a hip ambience to the streets.
