Rotherhithe is full of marinas, wildlife reserves, warehouse conversions and new-build homes, all clustered around the river Thames. The area has changed a lot since the first dockyard on this part of the Rotherhithe peninsula was built in 1696. The residents of Bombay Wharf have easy access to scenic walks and cycle routes surrounding the estate, heading in both directions along the river.
Right on Bombay Wharf's doorstep one can find a few of many historic buildings of Rotherhithe, including The Mayflower pub and St. Mary the Virgin Church, both initially built in circa 1200-1500 as well as the Brunel Museum, which tells the story of one of the world’s great engineering dynasties. Brunel organised the world’s first underground concert party here in 1827, and the Museum celebrates and interprets music and theatre as well as engineering.
