Useful facts about Bermondsey:
Bermondsey is a district in south London, and a part of the London Borough of Southwark. To the west of Bermondsey lies Southwark, to the east Rotherhithe, and to the south, Walworth and Peckham. Southwark London Borough Council has divided the borough into a number of community council areas. The wards of Grange, Riverside and South Bermondsey form the Bermondsey Community Council area.
Bermondsey used to be known for its abbey, founded in 1089, which stood where Bermondsey Square is now. Two queens died there: Henry V`s Kate, Catherine de Valois, who was sent here after it was discovered she had secretly married a Tudor after Henry`s death and Elizabeth Woodville, wife of Edward IV. To the subsequent nunnery came Florence Nightgale, seeking sanctuary from popular acclaim on her return from the Crimea.
As it developed over the centuries, Bermondsey underwent some striking changes. After the Great Fire of London, it was settled by the well-to-do and took on the character of a garden suburb especially along the lines of Grange Road, as Bermondsey Street became more urbanised, and of Jamaica/ Lower Road. A pleasure garden was founded there in the 17th century, commemorated by the Cherry Garden Pier. Samuel Pepys visited "Jamaica House" at Cherry Gardens in 1664 and recorded in his diary that he had left it "singing finely".
