Working in London Bridge
We are pleased to bring you our latest LentaSpace Location Guide, designed to give you a feel for what it’s like to working in London Bridge. We have included everything essential – how long it will take you travel to work, where to stop for coffee enroute, where to go for the best street food at lunch, where to buy that last minute birthday present and where to gather with your work mates for post work drinks.
Transport links are amazing in the London Bridge area with the mainline station enabling you to commute direct from Hastings, Maidstone and Ashford.
The Stations are also well serviced by Transport for London – you can arrive by tube via Northern and Jubilee Lines, plus Thames Clippers.
Bus routes serving London Bridge include the 17, 43, 141, 149, 388 and 521.
You really are spoilt for choice for shopping options if you work around London Bridge. First stop has to be the beautiful listed Hays Galleria, home to the independent book shop, The Riverside Bookshop offering all genres and great service, at 57 Tooley St.
Open 7 days a week, Borough Market is also within easy walking distance to the West of the station and offers everything from Mexican street food to garden ornaments.
It’s always good to know where the local independent coffee places are, so there are two branches of Three Wheels in the London Bridge area, in The Shard and at No.1 London Bridge. A passionate small team aim to provide their customers excellent freshly roasted coffee in every cup. They will even organise deliveries to your office! Now that’s coffee dedication.
Again, Borough Market is the place to head for coffee brewed with expertise and pride at Monmouth Coffee, at 3 The Borough, where you can also treat yourself to a gorgeous pastry and take home their beans or ground coffee too.
Places for lunch
Arabica London, at 3 Rochester Walk, offers Middle Eastern food to eat in, or made to order salads, falafels and Chicken Shawarma to take away.
The renowned Tapas Brindisa at Borough Market offer perfect Spanish tapas for a lunchtime treat. It’s no reservations policy means that you need to get here early though!
Post work drinks
With its riverside location, Hays Galleria is also the perfect spot for post work drinks. The team at Vivat Bacchus at 4 Hays Lane, believe that life is too short to drink bad wine, so you will be in safe hands. They are also very serious about cheese with their own walk in cheese room, storing the cheese at the perfect temperature.
If a proper London pub is more your style, The Globe Tavern, at 8 Bedale St, will not disappoint with its traditional dark wood interior and plenty of beers on tap.
