Saturday 11 April - Bankside

From Southwark tube station we will walk to Millennium Bridge and cross the River Thames to Tate Modern. The gallery and the More London development to the east have been catalysts for Bankside’s regeneration. New residential by Rogers Stirk Harbour and office accommodation by Allies and Morrison have transformed a neglected backwater into London’s most dynamic work/live hub. The train lines still criss-cross overhead but the perception of this once undesirable Dickensian backwater is changing with the development of Herzog and de Meuron's angular brick extension to Tate Modern. This walk meets at Southwark tube station, just past the ticket barriers and finishes near London Bridge station.
