Introduction : Location

The museum is located in BERMONDSEY on the South Bank of the RIVER THAMES. This area has become the focal point for avante garde cultural and artistic activity, a particularly fitting site for The Fashion & Textile Museum.

The museum is only a few hundred yards from TOWER BRIDGE and LONDON BRIDGE and within comfortable walking distance of the City of London. It is just over a mile from the Bank of England, two miles from the West End, and it is bordered by the peaceful Thames Riverside Walk.

The nearby main line services from LONDON BRIDGE STATION (shortly to include the extended Jubilee Line) provides direct access to the West End and Canary Wharf. Waterloo Station, with the Eurostar Terminal and direct services to Paris and Brussels, is less than ten minutes away by taxi.

Between the Festival Hall in the West and the Milennium Dome in the East, you will find the OLD VIC THEATRE, the re-constructed GLOBE THEATRE, the TATE GALLERY OF MODERN ART, the IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM, HMS BELFAST FLOATING MUSEUM, the DESIGN MUSEUM, the BRAMAH TEA & COFFEE MUSEUM, NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM, and the GREENWICH ROYAL OBSERVATORY. All of these attractions including the Fashion and Textile Museum will be accessible via the new Jubilee underground extension.
