Deriving its name from one of the medieval causeways built to hold back the Thames, the early history of Bankside owes much to its riverside location.
Bankside is one of the oldest settlements in Britain, dating back over 6000 years. When the Romans founded Londinium on the north bank of the Thames, a bridge was built near the present day London bridge, and the surrounding area has been inhabited ever since.

The main entertainments that drew crowds to Bankside were the ‘stewhouses’ (brothels), animal-baiting pits and public theatres, sometimes all at once, as prostitutes would trawl the playhouses, which doubled as bear-baiting arenas. The Rose, the Swan, the Globe and the Hope were the four Bankside playhouses of the Tudor era, and some of the first ever in London. House Clearance Waste Rubbish Collection Bankside SE1.
