Great that this gallery remains free (donation request) for those who love the arts. We viewed 2 floors but the crowds were enormous and it didn't end up being everyone's cup of tea

Housed in a ugly old power station the modern 'art' on display is to my mind awful, a curled up rope and a pile of bricks..? You may as well visit Home base.

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
