What you'll do
We will meet at Westminster Tube and then head South of the river via Lambeth Bridge and along Lambeth Walk which is a very historic and picturesque part of the city with great views over to Parliament. I will then take you on a scenic route towards our first gallery stop, Newport Street Gallery. This is a stunning contemporary art space which was opened in 2016 by world famous artist Damien Hirst who studied at Goldsmiths Art School where I studied also. Hirst shows other artists work and not his own and there is always something interesting on display. We will then walk through the atmospheric back streets of Vauxhall and see some surprising little places of the beaten track. Next stop is the Waterloo area which has some amazing street art and great local market with one of the best traditional cafes in London, so we will stop there for a snack for sure! From here will head towards Bermondsey, a vibrant South London neighbourhood which is known of it's cute Wharf House buildings and stylish boutiques, bars and restaurants. We will visit the world famous White Cube Gallery on Bermondsey Street finish at London Bridge.
