Leather making in Old Bermondsey

Walk Duration
Join Caroline or Kelly for a stroll around old Bermondsey to discover more about the fascinating leather making industry that was at its peak here in the 19th century. Hear about how the area was covered with lime pits for preparing the skins, which were obtained from both Leadenhall and Smithfield markets. Many of the majestic industrial buildings remain but are now converted into flats or the Fashion Museum established by Zandra Rhodes. There are also exciting art galleries including the White Cube.

The walk starts by the statue of Thomas Guy in the square of old Guy’s Hospital in front of the  Science Gallery Cafe,  a stone’s throw from the Shard and ends in Borough High Street close to London Bridge Station
