The Dixon – London Bridge, SE1

Once home to rascals and rogues, the Tower Bridge Magistrates Court has been skilfully restored into The Dixon hotel. Built in 1905 and named after its architect John Dixon Butler, this grande dame is celebrating a new chapter as part of the Marriott’s inspiring Autograph Collection. All of the key Edwardian details remain – however there is now a solid dose of contemporary, with an edgy and eclectic design inspired by the culture of SE1. There are 193 stylish rooms and suites – many have original features with high ceilings and decorative coving, others are more modern with blackened steel and oak accents. Wake yourself up with a coffee, made from the hotel’s very own coffee brand, Shakedown, brewed just steps away from the jail cells. The restaurant Provisioners serves contemporary Italian classics, with pizza, pasta and Prosecco. For further delicious tipples, there’s the impressive Courtroom Bar, its walls decorated with historic mugshots of people who passed through the dock. And while it’s easy not to leave, there are some great spots nearby, with the Tower of London, Maltby Street Market and Shakespeare’s Globe all within walking distance.
