Borough Yards, the large-scale new shopping and dining district located directly adjacent to the historic Borough Market in London Bridge, will open its first section - Soap Yard - on 13th December, ahead of the development’s grand launch in Spring 2022. Opening initially with Everyman Borough Yards, a series of further preview openings are scheduled in early 2022 building momentum towards its full launch in the Spring.


With base construction now completed, interior images of Borough Yards have been revealed for the first time, offering an early glimpse at the scheme before fit-outs begin for the 50 new shops and restaurants that will call it home.


Borough Yards revives a lost medieval street pattern connecting Borough Market to Clink Street and the River Thames, transforming a series of formerly disused warehouses, arches, and viaducts into a series of new spaces. Designed by SPPARC, the project sensitively intertwines new building additions with the historic architecture of the site, using innovative brickworking to subtly connect the old with the new. An arcade area connecting the two ends of the district will see a series of new restaurants and shops housed in the expansive double-height Victorian arches, with two new office buildings to be operated by TOG (The Office Group) also located within the scheme. 


At the gateway to Borough Yards sits a 2,000 sq foot Paul Smith store, on the corner of Stoney Street. Bold neon lighting by FRA Creative illuminates a new public square and will guide visitors from Everyman Borough Yards and Soap Yard to the arcade area to discover the full Borough Yards offer.


Championing the return to cinema, Everyman Borough Yards is London Bridge’s first ever cinema, and will be home to two screens, both filled with plush sofas and armchairs, exclusively designed for maximum comfort to ensure a premium experience. Everyman will open on 13th December 2021 with a series of blockbuster new releases, as well as a mix of independent and classic films.
