Biscuit Factory – Bermondsey

The Peek Frean biscuit factory was the focus for a community for over a hundred years and employed generations of families living in Bermondsey.  The area became known as ‘Biscuit Town’ and the factory infused its surroundings with sweet smells that varied with the type of biscuit that was being baked.   When the factory closed in 1989 it was a great loss to the area and a blow to the local community.

After remaining empty for some years, the old factory buildings have been rebranded and called The Biscuit Factory.  It forms a part of the Tower Bridge Business Complex which offers light industrial units and studios and has a varied range of tenants.  Planning permission was granted in 2013 for demolition of the buildings and the construction of 800 new homes, including affordable housing, alongside commercial floor space.
