Borough Yards, a revitalised shopping, dining, and cultural destination in the heart of London Bridge, has recently unveiled Stonecutters Lane. This latest development marks the final stage in the evolution of Borough Yards. Stonecutters Lane will feature a diverse mix of independent retailers dedicated to sustainability and high-quality design, with many brands opening their first standalone stores in the UK.

The independent shops debuting in Stonecutters Lane include natural, vegan, and sustainable skincare brand Sknfed, handmade décor producer La Lune London, which comes to Borough Yards following its success in Camden, and handmade jewellery designer Linnet Jewelry, known for its popular Etsy shop and a unit on Portobello Road. Additionally, affordable eyewear brand Pop Specs and ethical slow fashion social enterprise Handmade Stories will also set up shop.

We’re thrilled to be working with Lone Design Club to launch the lane with free immersive events and pop-ups, creating a lively atmosphere for people to explore.”
