Bermondsey is one of the oldest parts of the London Borough of Southwark. First documented in the Domesday Book of 1086, it was formerly known as Bermundsey or Bermundesye. Steeped in history, the area has been through a Roman occupation, and during Saxon times, was home to a Benedictine monastery. Medieval Times saw the area begin to establish itself as a centre for the leather industry due to its good access to the Thames which made it an ideal hotspot for tanners. By 1792, a third of the country’s leather output came from Bermondsey. With good transport links, and the majority of London’s markets on its doorstep, Bermondsey was seen as a major threat by the City of London. So much so, that the city attempted to restrict all sales of Bermondsey goods within a 3 mile radius of the city!
The launch of Maltby Street Market in 2010, means the area is once again delivering its trading traditions to a new and contemporary market. Beneath the arches, an eclectic array of stalls can be found for today’s discerning browser.

Pre World War II, Bermondsey’s 4 mile stretch of riverside was populated with wharves and warehouses. However, due to the severe damage suffered by the area during the London bombings, and the subsequent collapse of the river trade in the 1960’s, the banks of Bermondsey were left standing derelict for some years. With the backing of the London Docklands Development Corporation, many of the wharves were redeveloped during the 1980’s. These have now been transformed into a mix of residential and commercial properties, boasting some of the most expensive and exclusive real estate London has to offer.
