The Bermondsey Book does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a book all about Bermondsey. There’s so much amazing history here right on our doorsteps.

Did you know there used to be a magazine called The Bermondsey Book in the 1920s? It was published by The Bermondsey Bookshop who provided working people from the factories and docks with a book club, free library and educational events for the first time. The Bermondsey Book featured writing by local working people alongside famous writers including Thomas Hardy, H. G Wells and Virginia Woolf. Our new Bermondsey Book is packed full of pictures, stories and games by local artist and writers including:
