Occupying an awe-inspiring building that dates from 1906, when it served as the Tower Bridge Magistrates Court, The Dixon is a new hotel that captures all the culture, creativity and variety of Southwark.

Named after John Dixon Butler, the Grade II-listed building’s original Edwardian architect, The Dixon is steeped in history but inspired by the contemporary character and culture of its vibrant neighbourhood. Its 193 rooms and suites, lounges and restaurant enjoy an edgy, eclectic design aesthetic and a boutique vibe.

With an award-winning combination of authentic design, carefully-curated amenities and smart technology, The Dixon is one-of-a-kind in its locality.
