One Tower Bridge, an Overview
‘Rule Britannia, Britannia rule the waves’, ‘Orange and lemons say the bells of St Clements’,
‘Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner’. If ever a single property development embodied London life, British patriotism and yet have truly international appeal, One Tower Bridge must surely be it!
With a view that takes in possibly London’s most iconic landmark, Tower Bridge, and each block in the development being named after one of the great houses of the British Monarchy. One Tower Bridge is truly unique and justifies the developer’s description of being ‘extraordinary’.
With an air of exclusivity that would make any resident feel like royalty and facilities and smart technology that would be the envy of James Bond, One Tower Bridge is surely going to become one of those emblematic developments that neighbours look upon with envy, and pedestrians look at in awe.
A History of One Tower Bridge
With one of the most famous addresses in London, One Tower Bridge residents will wake up every day to see the magnificent bascules of Tower Bridge rising slowly to allow boats and ships to pass through.
Constructed over 8 years from 1886 – 1894 Tower Bridge was like many innovative constructions both admired and derided in equal measure. Designed by Sir Horace Jones, Tower Bridge provided a new crossing for the increasingly populated parts of East London whose businesses required north/south connections but at the same time, a fixed bridge could not be built as tall ships used the Pool of London; situated between London Bridge and the Tower of London.
Tower Bridge was the answer with its magnificent granite and Portland stone clad towers housing some of the 11,000 tons of steel that make up the framework.
Its two high-level walkways proved instantly popular but as with many architectural ideals were somewhat abused by prostitutes and pickpockets who found the dimly lit staircases a handy place to do business.
Today the walkways of Tower Bridge are home to exhibitions and displays with the towers now being a tourist attraction of a more reputable nature.
While the erection of Tower Bridge is to be lauded, there was one casualty of the construction that has now become part of a hidden London no longer accessible to people. Tower Subway – the entrance of which lay very close to the One Tower Bridge site – was an underground tunnel originally designed to take a cable car underneath the Thames. The cable car itself proved too costly and so the tunnel simply became an underground walkway with a toll of ½ d to pass through but the new toll-free walkways of Tower Bridge saw the demise of the tunnel and it is now used as a water mains.
However one legacy of the Tower Subway was its construction method which was later used to build the City and South London Railway, the world’s first underground railway.

One Tower Bridge & Beyond
Taking its inspiration from European architecture, London’s History and the British Monarchy. One Tower Bridge is an anglophiles dream.
With practically the whole of London within walking distance, this great cities cultural icons, are rarely more than a 20 minute stroll away and there are many mobile apps that will direct you there, as will a friendly London Cabbie.
But what the apps and guidebooks won’t tell you about is the more offbeat attractions. From the old operating theatre behind Guy’s Hospital to the barely known Bermondsey Arts Club just yards away from One Tower Bridge, despite all its redevelopment, London continues to surprise and delight.
While the rich and famous sample nearby restaurants such as the Pont De Latour or the Design Museum’s, Blueprint Café. It is worth noting that many of the ingredients may have come from the fabulously chic Borough Market just moments away from One Tower Bridge.
Likewise, tourists may gawp at the torturous instruments and beautiful Crown Jewels housed in the Tower of London. Adventurous Londoners get a more hands-on experience at the monthly ‘London alternative market’ which holds fetish, bondage and piercing workshops in a popular vodka bar opposite the tower itself!
Admittedly while One Tower Bridge residents may not be purchasing a flat for the above reasons, One Tower Bridge residents will be appreciative of the eccentric, quirky, historical London and will revel in the contrast of residing in luxury apartments in Central London while enjoying the arrhythmic heart beat of everyday life in zone one London.
