Nelson House was built in the 1740s on a former shipyard and probably built for one of the shipbuilding owners.
Unusually the front entrance faces Rotherhithe Street rather than the Thames, this leads to the possibility that it led to the shipyard.

The Mayflower Pub in Rotherhithe Street, the inn first recorded at this site from around 1550 was known simply as ‘The Shippe. In 1780 It was renamed the Spread Eagle and Crown. This coincided with the rebuilding of the inn, bringing it more or less to the configuration that we see today.
During the Second World War the pub was badly damaged, losing most of the upper storey. This was carefully restored to match the ground floor and to retain the character of the original rooms. in 1955 the name The Mayflower was finally assumed. To this day it is the only public house licensed to sell postage stamps.

Named as the Yorkshire Grey before 1800, The White Horse was closed in April 1958, now demolished.
