Culture, cocktails and crispy duck

South London is a real hub of culture; with Borough Market as the jewel in the crown, Bermondsey is going through a foodie renaissance. It’s a great place to explore on weekends - without the crowds, you’ll get to live the area like a local.

Culture, cocktails and crispy duck, designed by Milly Kenny-Ryder – a food, travel & lifestyle writer, photographer and the face behind Thoroughly Modern Milly and @millykr.

Bermondsey on the weekend has all the cultural appeal of Central London, without the tourists. Soak up the local village feel of the area, and toast to Sunday night in style.

Absolutely brilliant and very thorough – one of the very few firms that deliver more than what they claim. Real good stuff.
