Join ex-Wellington parent and Qualified London Guide Rosalind Vincent for an in-person walk around Bermondsey. Nick-named The Land of Leather, Bermondsey has a rich industrial past where tanneries, biscuit factories and breweries once dominated. Sitting south-east of London Bridge, it has been an area of poverty, being badly hit by bombs aiming for the nearby docks during the war. Today, Bermondsey is experiencing a gentrification which has brought high-class hotels, art galleries and hipster-type cafés to this part of south London. Come and discover this exciting area which has its roots in an 11th century Abbey. To find out more about Rosalind, visit Home | Wide Eyed London
