London Bridge is in the district of Southwark on London's South Bank which, as well as being one of the oldest areas in London, is home to much of the city's art and entertainment. Surrounded by all manner of tourist attractions, the location is ideal for those visiting London on leisure but, being situated directly opposite London's main area of business, is equally suitable and popular with visiting business people. As such the accommodation is slightly more geared towards those who have heavier wallets to carry, though there are a few cheaper options available. London Bridge is on the Jubilee and Northern lines.
For a sightseeing holiday in London there are few better places to stay than near London Bridge. Throw yourself into the arts and entertainment that are so characteristic of the area by visiting the Tate Modern or watching a play at Shakespeare's Globe (the reasonably priced Premier Inn London Southwark is closest to these). Aside from Shakespeare's Globe there are a good selection of small, independent theatre venues including the Menier Chocolate Factory. Slightly to the West of the London Bridge tube station are the London Dungeons and the Imperial War Museum, which is on board the HMS Belfast. One of London's most iconic landmarks, Tower Bridge, is just a 15 minute walk from the tube station and the Tower of London is just beyond on the north side of the River Thames. Hilton London Tower Bridge is especially close to these. London Bridge station is somewhat of an attraction in itself as it is famously one of the world's oldest railway stations. Thankfully its services are all modern.
London's South Bank doesn't have the highest density of fancy restaurants but most of them are located around the London Bridge area. Cantina Vinopolis is likely to have one of the highest ceilings you've ever dined beneath, being located under the towering Victorian arches beside the River Thames. The temptation to shout 'echo!' is overwhelming, but it's probably best that you don't as it's all a rather sophisticated affair. There are a good selection of cafés clustered around the London Bridge tube station and eateries range from fast food takeaways to the popular upmarket restaurant chain of Café Rouge.
For a wild night out you're probably going to want to head north of the river - South Bank is best suited to those looking for a quiet drink. There are several wine bars in the region as well as the local incarnation of the popular cocktail bar chain, The Slug and Lettuce. Those looking for something a bit different can head to the London Dungeons to scare themselves silly - tours run into the early evenings.
