  • Your guide will meet you in the lobby of the Bankside Hotel.
  • Begin your walk over a chat about why artists and tipples have always seemed to go hand in hand.
  • Pop into the Tate Modern’s collection 'Materials and Objects' to enjoy the way artists have influenced the design of everyday objects, including beer bottles and cans.
  • Feeling thirsty? Grab a beer from the current local brewery take-over at Tate Modern Terrace Bar (price of beer not included).
  • Take a stroll along the riverfront to Sutton Walk and discuss the neighborhood’s meteoric rise as a centre of modern art in all forms. 
  • Learn about the history of brewing in Southbank and how many of the 19th century breweries came to be replaced by performance complexes like Southbank Centre.
  • Enjoy a cold beer and a chat with your artist guide at Art Yard Bar in the Bankside Hotel.
