I was here for an awards ceremony the other night. It is such a shame it is closing as it is a real fixture of the wine world, but it was good to go one last time in such a great atmosphere to experience it one last time!

I was given a trip to Vinopolis for my birthday and duly turned up for the booking I made with my wife and I eagerly anticipating a fun time. The wine tasting starts with a talk for about 20 minutes on wine and what to expect, how to taste and how to use the token card each guest is given.... More

So, my partner and I have been desperate to try this and hearing its closing down we thought we had better do this. In my opinion it's very over priced I would have preferred to have spent £70 on a bottle of champagne and sat in a nice bar. The samples are 25ml I do get this is wine tasting.... More

If you want to try an extraordinary wide variety of quality wines at an affordable price try Vinopolis near London Bridge. It's hard to estate how many wines are available but it is a lot and more than even the most determined wine sampler can manage. Each person buys a chip card and this enables them to put int the...

I have vouchers to visit Vinoplolis and would like to go tomorrow. However it is impossible to find out through their website how to book. Are they closing because they have no customers or because their customers are bewildered in how to book?! Perhaps the former? I can't find any sensible formation. It is very irritating indeed. Sort yourself out... More

I visited Vinopolis in 2009 and had great memories of an insightful, informative, tutored wine tastng event. When my fiancé informed me that Vinopolis is to close by the end of the year I decided it was worth another visit, especially as he had never been. We booked onto the generic experience (previously I attended a Corporate event so I... More

My boyfriend and I came here for a Thursday night treat and we had lots of fun. Granted the experience isn't exactly informative - after a short intro to wine from a sommelier that was fairly difficult to follow, you're left to your own devices to explore the experience and use the self-service tasting machines - but personally I prefer...

Imagine railway arches wìth a few automated vending machines selling wine and you're there. The place has about as much character as a McDonalds. The business model is genius though. Charge mark-ups of 200% on wine, hire practically no staff and leave people to it. Several of the vending machines were broken, which was poor. Some of the wine (The... More

We did not expect this to be a high quality experience but it was. The wine tasting lecture was informative without being poncy and the ambience under the arches was excellent. The wines on offer were varied and they actually cared about the quality they were dispensing. The tapas bar within was simple but very good and good value too.

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
