    Come on in.

    Once a Victorian tea warehouse, it’s taken many years for us to carefully restore it to its former glory. Found on a cobbled street tucked back from the Thames, we’ve stayed true to the heritage of the building with polished concrete, exposed brick walls and the arched factory windows.

    Historic warehouse with bags of character.

    Southwark, London Bridge and Blackfriars stations are within a 10 minute walk, making it easy to get around London and to the airports. For a more authentic experience, take the Thames Clipper from the end of the road and commute by the river!

    Welcome to the neighbourhood.

    Sitting on the southern bank of The Thames opposite The City, and nestled between Southbank and London Bridge, Bankside is central and accessible. The medieval streets boast some of London’s top attractions, and entertain a buzzing mix of lively visitors and laid back locals who live and work here.

    Native Bankside is located in our Borough and Southbank neighbourhood.
