It spawned the first London startups!
With over 2000 years of human commercial history, London Bridge is part of the original foundations of London as we know and love it. It has been the birthplace for many enterprises and continues to provide exciting opportunities for new startups. The area around London Bridge has a history dating back thousands of years to when the Romans can claim the original London startup – as they made most of the excellent trade opportunities the river offered.
While the Thames may now provide more of an aesthetic benefit than anything vital to your business, the area continues to flourish as an economic hub.
This respectable postcode could be a benefit to new startups that are out to impress prospective clients. Being able to invite them to your London Bridge office is a nice touch, plus it’s an easily recognisable (and don’t forget – cool sounding) location for any international clients you may have.
An easy peasy commute
Still not convinced? You can get here by rail, road or river (work by river, imagine?!). Thanks to the fourth largest transport hub in London being located here, London Bridge is simple to get to, even for the directionally challenged like me. Choose your method – bus, overland, Jubilee and Northern Tube lines, ferry, bike, taxi or legs. The choice is yours.
If discovering the latest food trends is what makes you get up in the morning then London Bridge is the perfect starting point for you. Its central location means you have s*** loads of London’s best restaurants, cafes and bars on your doorstep.
Feeling peckish? Put that grumbly tummy at ease –Borough Market’s conveniently located just around the corner and as many a London Bridge worker knows, you can spend your entire lunchtime wandering around staring at the sheer volume, variety and tasty looking food on display. But more of that in a second…
For something a bit different, try Tito’s – a Peruvian restaurant situated on London Bridge Street.
If you want to impress your clients, you can easily win some brownie points by taking them out for a meal at one of London Bridge’s more upmarket restaurants. There are plenty of fine dining options including Restaurant Story, Vinothec and José. For the extra wow factor, Oblix is located halfway up the Shard (as well as a load of other fancy restaurants) giving you impressive views of the city.
We all love the Borough Market
Obviously, this place needs a mention all on its own. Let’s face it, Borough Market is one of the coolest places in the city and your London Bridge office will be located right next door.
Head in early for your Monmouth Coffee fix, come back at lunch for some spicy chorizo at Tapas Brindisa, and then finish off your day at the Wright Brother’s Oysters and Porter House.
Get your dose of vitamin D
If a takeaway sandwich in the sunshine is more your style, there are plenty of great places to sit outside and watch the passersby. Whether you’re north or south of the river, there are lots of benches along the riverfront offering great views.
Potters Fields Park is a beautiful green public space with views of the river, City Hall and HMS Belfast. Bring a note pad and pen and you can pretend to do some work while enjoying the great outdoors.
‘Team bonding sessions’
What would be the point of having a job if you didn’t have Friday after-work drinks? The good news is that there is a huge range of pubs and bars within easy reach of London Bridge.
If German weissbier, dunkles or pilsners are your things, then head to the basement of Katzenjammers and their underground bar. For an easy-going atmosphere, check out Woolpack or The Rake in the Borough Markets.
Try The Boot and Flogger for a cosy pub environment with great wines and ales and hearty food.
For any businesses working in creative fields, you’ll be pleased to know that you’re surrounded by some of London’s most impressive architectural monuments dating through the centuries – from the Tower of London through to the Shard.
You are also within walking distance of some fantastic galleries and museums including the Design Museum, White Cube, The Clink Prison Museum, the Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret, and the Fashion and Textile Museum.
Exciting business networks
London Bridge has a very active business network and offers exciting opportunities to up and coming startups. With the Shard and The News Building, this area has been designated as a Business Improvement District and is receiving government support to help businesses grow and prosper.
Some of the world’s most successful businesses have offices here, including Ernst & Young, Tiffany & Co, and Qatari broadcaster, Al Jazeera Media Network.
