Situated 1.5 miles (2.4 km) east of Charing Cross, Borough forms one of the oldest parts of London and fronts the River Thames to the north. It is now at an advanced stage of regeneration and is the location of the City Hall offices of the Greater London Authority.
The regeneration has given way to residential development, galleries, shops, restaurants, bars and most importantly major office developments, home to many international headquarters of accountancy, legal and other professional services. Serviced offices in Borough are within easy walking distance of the City and the West End. The impressive skyscraper, 'The Shard' is next to London Bridge Station. Borough has become a major business centre with many national and international corporations, professional practices and publishers located in the area.
Borough Market is a well-developed visitor attraction with units that have been converted to form a gastronomic focus for London. Borough High Street runs roughly north to south from London Bridge towards Elephant and Castle.
