Rotherhithe is an important town boasting a history as a port-centre, from the Elizabethan era all the way into the 20th century. Currently, it enjoys a status as both a peaceful residential town and a historical point of interest. The town boasts a rich cultural history with Scandinavian, Indian, and Canadian connections, made possible precisely by its prolific dependence on shipping. Located on the south bank of the River Thames in London, Rotherhithe has a rather storied past including starting a royal romance, being filmed, spurring fictional maladies for Sherlock Holmes, and producing famous authors.
- Relax for a day at Southwark Parkon the edge of Rotherhithe, in London’s far east end, where fresh greenery, classical bandstands, and charming pathways encourage you to enjoy your time away from the city bustle.
- Discover Rotherhithe’s Heritage Museum, The Pumphouse, where exhibitions like vintage ‘50s music and royal wedding cake replicas embellish the authentic historical flavour of the town.
- At Brunel Engine House, discover the incredible historic machinery that was used in keeping the Thames Tunnel dry, by exploring this museum’s tribute to the steam engines and electrical pumps that changed this London tunnel forever.
Rotherhithe is located to the southeast of London’s core on the Thames River, it peers out from a small peninsula across from the Isle of Dogs. There are many ways of getting here via public transportation.
