Southwark apartment description

Southwark, on the south bank of the Thames, is perfectly located for access to Tate Modern, the new Globe Theatre, and Borough Market. A walk over Millennium Bridge leads to St Paul's to enjoy the history and architecture of the City. Dozens of Christopher Wren churches are within a short distance. Walk along the Thames Path to Tower Bridge and the pubs and restaurants of 'Mayfair on the River.' Next door to the Financial Times and the Rose Theatre, Old Theatre Court is a short stroll to Southwark Cathedral with its literary tombs. It is also the archaeological site of Shakespeare's first Globe Theatre.
The National Theatre, music halls, British Film Institute and Hayward Gallery provide nightly entertainment just ten minutes west. No need to spend hours on the tube around London: a short walk east on the river is The Tower and fifteen minutes west to Westminster. The new Shard by Renzo Piano commands attention from the engineeringly-minded. Sit in the Oxo Tower or the bar at the Tate and watch the sun set over the river and contemplate the wonders of this great city.
Plenty of the city's best take-away restaurants are at hand: English Roast, Spanish tapas, Indian, Greek, Turkish, Italian, and the greatest of London gastro-pubs.
There's Drake's galleon for the kids and the Thames River Clippers for the quick trip to Greenwich or the Embankment and West End, near Trafalgar Square. The recently opened One New Change shopping complex (designed by Jean Nouvel) is next to St Paul's. Could not be a better holiday location. Longer stays available if you are here to work.
If you are travelling with a son or daughter there is plenty to amuse the kids: prisons, pirate ships, boats on the river and parks. Very safe neighbourhood for young people.





Beautiful, one bedroom flat in an impeccably maintained, quiet, new building on the archeological site of the Globe Theatre. All amenities, quality towels and linens, full kitchen, brand new bath with rainforest shower. Walk everywhere downtown. Raised ground floor, courtyard entrance, lift in building. Warm and toasty in winter, with balcony doors when the sun is shining.

                              About the owner: I am a retired English professor who paints full time. I am often away at a studio and happy to rent to people who love London. Please email me for availability as I do not use the calendar on this site.

                              Why the Owner Chose Southwark:
                              All of my working life, studying English literature and painting, I wanted to get to the source and, for me, this is it. A better retirement location is hard to imagine.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              Old Theatre Court is a quiet professional building, very safe and secure, located in an area rich with ferocious history. A short walk to the oldest market in London finds some of the best food and I often spend evenings eating out of take-away boxes by the river, reading and thinking about this city. Roman legions marched here and wars fought across these bridges; traitors' heads were gruesomely displayed on spikes to warn plotters and new-comers. Chaucer, Jonson, Shakespeare and his troupe, all rode and stumbled along these cobbles. Hamlet was written here and sometimes, on a foggy night, that moodiness is palpable. Once the home of petty criminals, brothels and breweries the streets still exude intrigue. Samuel Pepys, one horrendous night in 1666, sat in the local pub and wrote about the Great Fire as it raged on the north side of the river. Dickens wrote Our Mutual Friend about this Southwark location, as well as Little Dorrit. I often think of him walking by the workhouses, warehouses and wharfs on his insomniac night walks. During World War II, German bombers slipped up the Thames trying to hit St Paul's; it still stands there, magnificent as ever. When I first moved to London I tried to see everything, now I sometimes just sit for hours and read by the water. Just watching the boats competing with the tides is sometimes enough for me.
