Rotherhithe is a surprising island of calm for somewhere so close to the centre of London. With pleasant parks, historical buildings and pubs aplenty – not to mention the Thames right on our doorstep – it’s easy to unwind and forget the stress of the city.
That’s not to say that there isn’t much to do here, though: quite the opposite, in fact, if you know where to look… Check out the attractions and amenities page to see what’s on offer.
When you do feel the need to venture further afield, you’ll find that Rotherhithe is well served for public transport:
- Canada Water underground station (Jubilee Line, Zone 2) is a pleasant 10-15 minutes’ walk away (or a bus ride if you prefer; see below).
- Rotherhithe overground station is about 10 minutes’ walk away along the river.
- The C10 runs between Canada Water and Victoria station and stops right outside the development, or just a couple of minute’s walk away.
- The 381 (and its night-time counterpart, the N381) runs between Canada Water and Waterloo, via London Bridge, and stops very close by on Salter Road.
If you prefer to travel under your own steam, there are routes of the National Cycle Network running through the area (including one to central London), as well as pleasant riverside walks to Greenwich or the South Bank (and beyond).
Please see the TFL website for more information on getting around.
