Different pieces of artwork everywhere you look, amazing street art by talented artists. Not far from popular tourist attratctions like London Eye and Southbank so it's definitely recommended to do a little detour and check this place out.

No it’s pedestrianised - 2 minutes walk from Waterloo Station - parking nearby would be very expensive
