Southwark is a hub of diverse attractions and architecture – from Shakespeare's Globe to the Shard, and Southwark Cathedral to the Tate Modern, the contrasts of this area make it stand out as a place to visit, and to stay in. Although art and design is on the cards for your days out, you’ll also be amazed by the unique design of this modern home. Set over three floors with a suspended floating staircase, this serene space has tasteful furniture with opulent touches throughout. The high pile rug is framed by plump, golden sofas. The bedframes are thick, plush, velvet. The bathtub stands in an entirely marble bathroom. And we’ve not even started on the outdoor spaces. The views from here are absolutely mind-blowing. While you won’t need to bother getting a ticket for the London Eye with such amazing views at home, you can certainly see it from your balcony, along with St Paul's Cathedral and the sharp peak of the Shard. We can’t think of a better place to mix up some cocktails with your friends and watch the sunset over this iconic skyline. However, if you do make it to street level, you’re five minutes from the delights of Bankside and less than ten minutes on foot to foodie’s paradise Borough Market. And of course, a plethora of local pubs, restaurants, and cafés come as standard.
