Life Drawing in Borough

60 yards from Tower Bridge station there is a place where you can Draw, Draw and draw for about £5 a head for 3 hours. As long as I bring a few friends sometime and nothing else because we share the cost. Yesterday the model was a formidable Brazilian curvy and flexible model, the music was so relaxing, tony was so attentive and helpful, people so friendly, poses amazing and beer on the tap, I simply wonder if It wasn't a dream. Today I went to meetup.com/lifedrawingsociety and it wasn't they do it everywhere in London in absolutely perfect locations.

I had to let you know, let's bring our pencils and change the world to a better one.

If would have no hesitation about buying or renting near Borogh. The loal authorty, LB Sothwark is spending millions on regenerating the E&C including parts of Borough. But like any part of London you just need to have your wits about you and be careful.

absolutely safe

I moved to a flat on Long Lane 2 months ago and feel just as safe as i did in a leafy bit of north london. more police walking around and people walking to/from work until late in the evening so you're never on your own. Enjoy living there - i'm loving it so far.

Only bin here a month

....but have to agree with Peter. So far I have discovered Borough Market, the dried fruit and choccy things in London Bridge Station, walked a million hot miles from bridge to bridge, but have still to find new friends. I love this London Forum, but, does anyone answer anyone? Remember, nation shall speak unto nation! Jacqui.

fitness club/gym

is there any borough gym near South Kensington tube station?

Tue May 24

Borough train st is packed during the weekday stay away if you can dont forget its the next stop to elephant and castle and london bridge

Fri Apr 01

yes - if you are able to register (ie in the right postcode) the Princess St Group Practice on Princess st at the Elephant is second to none. They have a lot of services offered and the staff are v.helpful

Mon Jan 24

Princes Street

Group Practice in Princes Street near to Elephant and Castle - < 10 min walk from Borough tube - friendly staff, I have always been seen immediately by a doctor the 5 or so times i have been.

Tue Dec 07

La Cave

Very good indeed.

Mon Aug 02


Excellent Modern Banglashi restaurant directly under Borough Market. Small & well cooked menu - much better than a bog standard Indian restaurant

Fri Jul 23

try the library

which is very close to borough tube.

average selection of dvds and video tapes available.

alternatively if you do have dvd player and rent over 6 movies per month try the new webbased service called lovefilm.com

Mon Jun 14


Is there a good gym near to Borough Tube? I know of Fitness First and Fitness Exchange up nr London Bridge but am looking for something closer to the tube station - pref near Gt Dover St. Tks!

Wed May 26

Can anyone tell me where the closest video store is to Borough High Street?

Tue May 18


Incredibally close and conveniant to the city and central London but still very local feeling. Greatest place in the world IMHO.

Wed Mar 24

Falmouth Road Practice

Weird opening times and as are most NHS practices in London full of completely batty, incredibally rude and down right scary receptionists. But v. v. good doctors and nice converted wigwam hut feel.

Wed Mar 24

Fitness First

Is just up the street to the station. Or if you've got a bit more to spend, a 5 min walk will talk you to City Cannons just across Blackfriars Bridge. £80 a month will get three pools, sauna, steam room, free towels, and a very attractive converted warehouse interior to sweat away in. Watch your valuables though the staff have been know to have itchy fingers. (So keep those iPods in visible distance, and always lock your locker).

Wed Mar 24

Sainsburys Local

Use to be a problem this until end of 2003 when the good old Orange's converted an office block into a very well stocked supermarket. More humous than scrambeled egg, and far more tagiatelli than bubble and squeak, but hey. I noticed people tend to go here particularly during heat waves because they've got the best publically accessible air conditioning on the street (Borough High Street that is just after the Blue Maid).

Wed Mar 24

Nope. Neartest is in Bermondsey

Hope on the Jubilee line and get out at Bermondsey. 5 min walk down MD Dental. V. good dentist. Extremmly well equipped.

Wed Mar 24

The Wheatsheaf

… on Stoney St. Full of yocal farmers from the market!

Wed Mar 24

Just right

Not too posh like some places up North, not too scummy like some places down South. Not too artsy like Hoxton, but plenty of culture. Specifics include: Menier Theatre, The Wheatsheaf, The George, The Globe, The Market Porter, Neal's Yard, Monmouth Coffee and a fantastic new French place near Southwark Cathedral… anyone prompt me on the name? (And of course the Borough Market… heaving on Saturdays but paradise on Fridays)

Wed Mar 24

Feng Shushi

Fish so fresh you could slap em! (And they're not paying me to say it)

Wed Mar 24

It depends which direction you are traveling in. Northbound - quite busy, can be packed. Southbound - generally quiet. Can get a seat most of the time.
