I visited White Cube Gallery for first time today and even before getting into the exhibition was impressed by the gallery space. The building is converted from a 1970's warehouse with fabulous high ceiling rooms and other smaller spaces. The Anselm Kiefer exhibition was stunning! Disturbing, poignant, thought provoking. An evocation of recent past German history. He's one of the... More

The White Cubes minimally painted and well-lit galleries are the perfect backdrop for modern art exhibits, acting as a blank canvas the spacious backdrop does not distract from the art. I was pleasantly surprised with the surrounding area, Bermondsey has had something of a transformation in recent years. The array of cafes, restaurants and shops along Bermondsey Road make for...

I went on a whim whilst out in London and whilst I've only been to a handful of art galleries I have to say, this one was a tad plain. Maybe I'm not the right kind of audience but it was quite small with little variation in exhibits. I think I spent the same amount of time in the bookshop... More

The whole London Bridge area is improving, starting with the Shard, and now the redevelopment of London Bridge station itself and a new Cancer Centre at Guy's Hospital. How clever therefore of the White Cube to move here and establish a major gallery that runs exhibitions of the top contemporary artists from Britain and abroad, including Gilbert and George, Tracy...

The interior is restrained and cool - the walls, floors and ceilings are mainly white, grey and black - with soft, even lighting, and there is a great sense of space and calm. This provides a blank canvas for changing exhibitions of contemporary art - a new exhibition of Antony Gormley's work was the highlight of our latest visit. And... More

Lovers of contemporary art should not miss visiting this wonderful gallery just south of London Bridge. It is part of a chain of galleries. The interior of the building is spectacular in its spaciousness and dramatic design. Each of the galleries that branch off from a central corridor is huge, perfect for displaying art without crowding. Check out thier website... More

Fantastic space! Loved the building inside but felt very unwelcome. The staff could not lift their heads out of their books .

This was our first time visiting this area of London and it was by chance that we came across this gallery. My daughter and I wandered in not knowing quite what to expect. The gallery features minimalist art and had select pieces from local artists. We really enjoyed looking carefully at the exhibits and my daughter (14) found inspiration to... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
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 attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
