Quiet room near Borough Market. Use of modern well-equipped kitchen and bathroom.

Comfy double bed with Egyptian Cotton linen.

Walking distance to Borough, St Paul's Cathedral, Towerbridge and the Southbank.

Oyster travel cards provided.

The Space

The flat is large and sunny. I live here with my son and my cat.
The decor is modern and comfortable. You will be sharing a bathroom with me. There is a power shower or bath if you prefer. The kitchen is hi-tech and you are welcome to cook or I can prepare a meal.

A fantastic location for travellers, sight-seers and culture vultures alike. The room is in a flat on a quiet street 10 minutes walk from Borough Market, London Bridge Main line and Towerbridge and the Southbank.

There is a large living room with views of the Gherkin and the Shard. Modern bathroom and kitchen, wi-fi, free off-road parking available.

I have lived in London for years and have good insider knowledge in where to go and what to see on your visit to London.
Breakfast and dinner also an option if required.

You are 10 minutes walk to London Bridge Mainline station where you can get the train to Gatwick, Luton or a day trip out to the coast. London Bridge is on the Jubilee Line ( for Buckinhgam Palace, Galleries, O2 Stadium) and Northern Line. You can also catch a whole host of buses. Or just set off on foot along the Southbank taking in Borough Market, Shakespeare's Globe, Tate Modern, St Paul's Cathedral. You can also catch the Thames Clipper which takes you along the river to Greenwich in the East or, if you go West, to Westminster, Big Ben and the West End for shopping or Theatre.
You can hire a Barclays bike to see London or just to get from a to b. The bike stand is 1 minute from my house.

Guest Access

Guests have access to free wifi.
There is a lift to the 4th floor.

Interaction with Guests

I am usually here in the evenings and I am happy to help guests with planning their trips or giving them advice on travel etc.

The Neighborhood

Bermondsey is a vibrant and creative part of London. I love the river and walking along the Southbank seeing St Paul's Cathedral and all the iconic buildings of London's skyline.
There is always something interesting going on - theatre, festivals, street performance, food markets.

Getting around

I recommend seeing London by bike and there is a Barclays bike stand on my street. I am happy to show you around on bike if you like.
Equally you can easily walk most places.
There are lots if buses through London Bridge and we are close to the Jubilee, Northern and Bakerloo line.

  • It was a very nice stay, Diana made it very cosy for me and she was there to answer the phone and help when the Eurostar came very late in the night and left me without the tube. Her son Archie is a lovely little man too !
    Very nice neighborhood without the usual noise associated with a capital city traffic.

  • I enjoyed my stay at Diana's very much: the flat is very pleasant and calm like the neighbourhood and Diana has a way of making you feel at home straight away, sharing a cup of tea and chatting as if you had known each other for years. She makes a great team with her adorable son Archie and Lady the cuddly cat. I would come back gladly!

  • Diana is an absolute gem! From the moment we met her she was very warm and welcoming, along with her charming son Archie. It's in a great location by the London Bridge Tube which basically goes everywhere you would need to go. We shared laughs and she gave us recommendations along side our lovely conversations. My friend and I had an amazing stay, we would recommend Diana for any future stays! She's a delight.

    Give Lady our love! xxx

    It was great to meet you Jordan. You are a brilliant house guest and I hope that we can make it over to Amsterdam over the summer.

  • I had very nice days in the house of Diana. The room is very quiet, the bed is good, the neighbourhood is quiet and relaxed (within 10 minutes at London Bridge). Diana helps you with everything you need, her home is your home.
    She is living there with her lovely son, both are the best hosts you can wish.

  • Diana was the most fantastic host! The room was a great size, very comfy bed and wonderfully clean. The location was super. She went out of her way to assist me with everything, she even shared all her phone/laptop charges on rotation when mine failed. Will be getting in touch next time I'm in London to book her lovely room in Bermondsey again.

About
I'm a designer, originally from Edinburgh. I've been living in London for 14 years. The best way to see London is either on foot or by bike. That's why I love living on the Southbank. There are so many interesting things to see and do. When I travel I like to visit friends who have local knowledge- it's great being able to reciprocate that with airbnb. When you come to stay with me I will be happy to share my top tips with you. At the moment my two favourite places to hang out are Bermondsey Street and Hoxton. There are so many great places to eat, drink and be merry! And the best bit is you will have an authentic experience as this is where real Londoners are! I would be happy to help you avoid the 'tourist traps' of Central London!
