Bermondsey - average property price £784,679 - has left behind its cockney past of brawny dockers and pearly kings and queens to join the ranks of London’s “smart set”.

The heart of the area lies back from the river between London Bridge and Tower Bridge and is changing fast. For centuries, Bermondsey was closely allied to the docks and antiques trade, meaning there is a stock of handsome warehouses and factories ripe for conversion into homes and offices. 

Small design businesses, art galleries, fashion boutiques, firms of architects and trendy eateries are piling into the neighbourhood, which is beginning to usurp Shoreditch.

Taper Building on Long Lane is a new development of 56 apartments grouped around a central landscaped courtyard. Homes come with climate-control and underfloor heating plus fast fibre cabling. 

A residents’ roof garden has views of the nearby Shard. Prices from £595,000.
