Might be hard to find, but Ropewalk is a little gem, quirky , friendly and worth the adventure to find. A gathering spot for the new breed of "locals" now living in this area, and there were lots of gatherings of friends "brunching" when we visited on Saturday morning.
During the summer of 2010, a quiet bubble of gastronomic intent was swelling under the railway arches in Bermondsey. This unlikely south-east London backwater quickly became a popular destination for a Saturday morning wander with a bit of grocery shopping along the way. A few years on, many new traders have got involved, the recently Ropewalk has become a full-on street market, and some of the original bunch have moved down the road to Spa Terminus. Find out about the gastronomic delights that await beneath the arches.
Ropewalk is now open 9am-4pm Sat and 11am-4pm Sun but Spa Terminus is still strictly Saturdays only (around 9am-2pm for most producers), so that’s the day to take it all in.
Its the setting that makes this place with a lot of the stalls set into the old timber trader arches. If you are walking the Thames Walk veer in to the markets just down from the Chard.
