Why can’t fast food be good food? LEON’s mission is to make it easy for everyone to eat well and live well. LEON More London is situated immediately south-west of Tower Bridge, and boasts a plethora of local sights. Head down to the sunken amphitheatre The Scoop (often used as a performance venue), gaze at Royal Navy museum ship HMS Belfast, take a look at City Hall (and imagine what it’s like to be an Apprentice candidate in the final – Eep!), and try to keep your head at the Tower of London. Or just indulge in a bit of retail therapy. It’s your call. LEON London Bridge Station A great place to grab something tasty before your journey, whether a chicken burger, our classic fish finger wrap or our baked fries and a tub of fresh hummus to dip them in (trust us, it tastes great). Situated within the station in the shadow of the iconic Shard building, London Bridge is the gateway to Kent, East Sussex and the south. Gaze in awe at all 95 floors of the majestic skyscraper, wander over to Borough Market for some beautiful fruit and veg, take a leisurely stroll along one of London’s many famous bridges, or chill enjoying the view of the Thames.
