Bankside Through and Artists Eye (with a cocktail)

Mon, 04 Nov - Tue, 31 Dec
South Bank Area and Art Yard Bankside - £78pp

Walk Bank Side London with a prominent local artist to see the city, captured and retold through a creative lens.


Have you ever looked at a piece of art and wondered what it must be like to see a city as an artist does? This tour will take you on a journey into the minds of artists present and past — helping you live, breathe and feel London’s streets, landmarks and culture — to understand what affects the way they see and ultimately depict the city that inspires their practice. 

  • Meet your artist guide in the lobby of the Bankside Hotel.
  • Visit the Tate Modern and be awed by Turbine Hall.
  • Cross Millennium Bridge, fondly called Wobbly Bridge by locals.
  • Visit the National Theatre and decide for yourself if the brutalist architecture is a treasured time capsule to preserve or an eye sore to the SE1 skyline.
  • Learn the complex history of  Undercroft Skatepark and the celebrities who got involved in the coalition to protect the park from developers.
  • Visit the Maker in Residence studio at the Bankside hotel.
  • Enjoy a cocktail from Art Yard Bar & Restaurant on the Bankside Hotel terrace.
