Buying a flat in Bermondsey:area upgrade to include new apartments, shops and revamped market square

The Blue is a centuries-old street market, that pre-dates the new hipster food outlets sprouting in nearby railway arches.

This lively patch of Southwark Park Road was once part of that world of dockers and Pearly Kings and Queens and today it remains proudly working class.

Now part of a Business Improvement District, the neighbourhood’s market square is getting a £2.3 million makeover to upgrade shopfronts and create permanent stalls for traders.

New boutique apartment schemes include 196 Southwark Park Road, where a Victorian pub rebuilt in the Fifties has been bulldozed to make way for eight flats, two houses and three shops.
