London Bridge City is a brilliant social and cultural hub located a short distance from the new waterside homes for sale at Tavern Quay. Residents at our development can use public transport to access the events in just 8 minutes, cycle in 13 minutes or use the Thames Path alongside the river to take a scenic walk in under 50 minutes.
The London Bridge City estate enjoys half a mile of river frontage along the Thames between London Bridge and Tower Bridge, with a total of 21.5 acres of space. The festival events take place at the outdoor amphitheatre The Scoop, at The Pier, with the river as a wonderful backdrop, and in the architectural gem that is Hay’s Galleria.
