While property prices in London have been skyrocketing in recent years, Rotherhithe has remained relatively affordable compared to other areas in the city. This makes it an attractive option for investors looking to purchase houses of multiple occupancy (HMOs) at a lower price point while still enjoying the benefits of living in London.
Rotherhithe is also a culturally rich area, with a diverse community and a variety of shops, restaurants, and cafés. The neighbourhood is home to several historic landmarks, including the Brunel Museum and The Mayflower pub, where the Mayflower ship set sail for America in 1620, is also located in the area.

Furthermore, the area has been undergoing a significant regeneration in recent years, with plans to build new homes, shops, and public spaces, which will further increase the area’s desirability. The development of the Canada Water Master plan is expected to bring thousands of new homes to the area, as well as new shops, restaurants, and public spaces. This will provide more opportunities for the young professionals to network and socialize.
