About the Event

The area south of the River Thames opposite Westminster and Chelsea has transformed quickly. A pivotal moment was when the Americans decided to locate their new embassy building in Nine Elms. Another important step forward was taken when Damien Hirst set up a gallery, including a restaurant called Pharmacy, opposite the railway arches in Vauxhall. The area is slowly becoming a “happening place” and includes art galleries, various restaurants under the refurbished railway arches and two new tube stations. 

The tour takes about 2 hours and we end up at the Battersea Power Station.  If you would like to go up the chimney lift afterwards please book

If you fancy lunch there are plenty of options. The newly opened roof terrace of the art’otel is a fun place and has a rooftop bar and restaurant with great views, there are two bars, one on roof (16th floor) and one on the 15th floor next to the restaurant called Joia, book
