Borough Market Estate
The charity owns two pubs in Stoney Street, SE1: The Wheatsheaf and the Market Porter. These hugely popular pubs keep a traditional British pub style and are very busy with visitors, workers and local residents. Stoney Street is one of the key thoroughfares into Borough Market, one of London’s most visited and used attractions and food markets. The small ground floor restaurant next to the Market Porter at 8 Stoney St was refurbished and opened in 2017.
We are also proud to own the small row of 5 shops between 1 and 13 Park Street, as well as the 7 flats and 1 office above them. With Borough Market on our doorstep, we have decided to introduce a mix of independent retail traders that offer a different choice for shoppers who may not only be looking for fine food. The flats above the shop are a mix of very long-term and more recent residents.
Our other investment properties include the Simon the Tanner pub in Long Lane, SE1, two small shop units on Southwark Street which neighbour our Hopton’s Almshouses, and a house in Bermondsey.
The charity also owns ancient endowed freehold land which has been leased out on a long term basis. This includes land and buildings on Bankside (Red Lion Court and the Premier Inn at Park St), and land and buildings in Dartford. We also own a 500 year lease on a strip of land at St Mary Overy Dock right by Southwark Cathedral.
