I guess it depends what they have on at the time but as it’s free, usually interesting, no hassle to buy anything it’s daft to walk by without a quick visit, thoroughly recommended.

We always make a point to stop in at the Bankside Gallery when we travel to London. There is no admission charge and they always have a very interesting exhibit of watercolor art... most of it can be purchased.

Really enjoy going here. Exhibitions change a lot. Nice variety of watercolours and prints. Staff are quiet and introverted which is ok, they let us quietly get on with it. They have a nice little bookshop and you can get some really excellent artistic cards,...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond

browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
