Property Management in Borough

The ancient borough of Southwark was historically known simply as ‘The Borough’.


Borough earned its name as it was originally the only borough outside of the City of London and refers to an area on the south side of the Thames, spanning from London Bridge to Elephant & Castle, and from Christ Church and Southwark Cathedral to the West to Commercial Docks in the East. The famous Borough Market dates back to medieval times, hence this area is steeped in history, full of character, Dickensian tales of derring-do, and known for its Inns and Theatres including Shakespeare’s iconic Globe Theatre.

Southwark old Borough


Modern-day Borough was formed in 1965, combining 3 metropolitan boroughs: Bermondsey, Camberwell, and Southwark. Just a stone’s throw from the City, it is within reach of all that London has to offer culturally and is considered a highly desirable place to live.

Besides the many coffee houses and fashionable eateries, Southwark boasts 130 parks and open spaces making it one of London’s greenest boroughs. As such it offers those who enjoy city dwelling welcome breathing space combined with a warm sense of community spirit.

Property Options

Property available is diverse with something to appeal to all pockets and tastes. Options range from modern skyline apartments to period houses, from luxury living to affordable starter homes. Alongside the River Thames, there are fashionable warehouse conversions, whilst towards Elephant & Castle a younger population of families and city professionals enjoy the myriad of amenities, bars and entertainment, and a pleasantly short daily commute into the City. Besides original period property, there has been a recent explosion of development, hence, the borough offers appealing housing opportunities at a more affordable rate than nearby Westminster.

Public transport is well provided for with four main stations – London Bridge, Southwark, Borough and Elephant & Castle providing easy access to Central London, airports, and the home counties. Alternatively hop on a Santander Cycle or hire an electric scooter to take a more scenic and environmentally friendly ride around the locale, or even take a river taxi from London Bridge Pier to Canary Wharf or Greenwich. Cars are surplus to requirements!

All in all, The Borough offers convenience, character and charm and is a popular choice for property investment, hence MIH Property have a firm foothold in this location.
