Thanks for that. Had a look at the site. Suitabley grim and institutional. The Globe eh? That should confuse the punters into thinking the development is a lot closer to The Globe Theatre and therefore the river rather than on an extension of the Old Kent Road
. Loved some of the marketing blurb too:
...centre of vibrant Southwark (so keep your mobile turned off and out of sight)
Its location will also appeal to the international businessman or businesswoman (who like to share a pint with Antipodean travellers in dubious late bars).
It is claimed that Southwark can offer a gastronomic tour of the world with restaurants, pubs and bars providing food for all tastes and nationalities (by way of example, there's a Chinese, Pizza and Indian on Tabard Street
, and the Indian lets you bring your own booze - great!).
Don't get me wrong. I love where I live. Just makes me smile when it's described like Kensingditch Covent Hill-Kenwell South. ;-)
