Butler’s Wharf, Shad Thames SE1
Built in 1871 – originally as a shipping wharf and warehouse – Butler’s Wharf has been transformed into a complex of luxury flats with restaurants and shops located below.
Conran & Partners purchased the historic site in 1983 and set out a £40 million vision to transform Butler’s Wharf estate into more than one million square feet of retail, cultural, work and living space. Today, the landmark warehouse conversion and site development is one of the most popular in London.
The apartment blocks located in the original warehouse conversion offer open-plan living with high ceilings, generous windows and original brickwork features. The original 19th century architecture blends seamlessly with other modern aspects of the development, creating a stunning place in which to live. Residents enjoy secure parking and direct access to the high-quality restaurants and bars underneath the apartment blocks.
Butler’s Wharf lies between Shad Thames and the Thames Path on the south bank of the River Thames. It overlooks Tower Bridge and St Katharine Docks.
Nearby Shad Thames is a pretty area with cobbled streets and a historic market place. The town has a variety of cafes, bars and shops, and is home to architects, art galleries and wine merchants. The area has a bustling delicatessen and cafe culture, with establishments like Tentazioni serving delicious fresh pasta, salads, hot specials and traditional Italian deli counter items.
The Butler’s Wharf development is awash with high-quality, waterside restaurants such as The Chop House, Le Pont de la Tour, and Cantina del Ponte. Just outside the development – and within the Tower Bridge conservation area – is The Anchor Tap, a traditional English pub overlooking the river where Dr Samuel Johnson is said to have compiled his English dictionary.
There are plenty of good transport links nearby, including tube stations at London Bridge and Tower Hill. Butler’s Wharf is also within easy walking distance of the “Square Mile”, making it an ideal location for commuters.
