Introducing Bermondsey Market...
Bermondsey is one of the oldest parts of Southwark with evidence of Roman occupation. Bermondsey’s Thameside location made it an important transport hub for the trade of all manner of goods. It’s success caused The City to enforce restrictions (to preserve its dominance) and earned Bermondsey the nick-name ‘London’s Larder’ due to the amount of food stuffs that passed through it’s docks.
The site where Bermondsey Square is today is best known as the site of Bermondsey Abbey which at it’s height rivalled nearby Westminster Abbey and was an economic powerhouse as well as a spiritual one.
