I've never worked this one out. It's grimy, grotty and scruffy. It has several estate agents, a couple of 'gastro pubs' a couple of other boozers. It has some attractive old warehouses and some less attractive new flats etc.
It's sandwiched between TBR which is The Ring
road, and Borough High Street
which is increasingly looking like the grottier end of Bermondsey Street
- dominated by 'To Let' boards for unlet office space.
I struggle to see it as anything special. Yet people love it. Why? Don't get me wrong, I've liked the area for years... but I'm not even remotely trendy.
