The area is particularly vibrant, especially around the London Eye, Tate Modern and Tower Bridge and there are many tourist attractions, shops, restaurants and cafes to visit and enjoy a bite to eat whilst you watch the world go by.
There are no less than 6 of Europe¹s top 40 universities Imperial, UCL, King¹s College, LSE, Royal Holloway and Queen Mary¹sall just a stone¹s throw away, making the South Bank ideal for those seeking world-class academic facilities whilst also providing excellent transport links from Waterloo, London Bridge and Blackfriars.
Residential addresses offering unobstructed river views have long commanded premium prices and with theirclose proximity to the city’s economic heartland many parts of the South Bank have become property hot spots.When you sprinkle considerable international investment, high-rise luxury tower blocks, public amenities and modern transport links into the mix, those property hotspots become ultra-desirable, ultra-prime residential postcodes, which is what we have seen in the area in recent years.
Properties on the South Bank of the River Thames are now among the most desirable in London, out performing demand for properties further down the river, such as Richmond and Fulham, which suffer from poorertransport links, of in Westminster, where stricter planning constraints prevent the development of enough homes to meet the demand.
Luxury developments such as One Blackfriars, South Bank Tower, One Tower Bridge and Neo Bankside, to name but a few, are changing the South Bank’s skyline and this will continue to happen going forward, especially as demand continues to rise.
