For a long time, London Bridge was an undesirable part of time. However, Since the Jubliee extension in 2000, London Bridge and The South Bank has seen a big transformation. Now there has been a lot of development in the area and many shops, restaurants and London apartments have been built. The South Bank and London Bridge is a buzzing part of town and when the Shard opens this summer, it is set to bring even more people to this area.
