Opposite Foxton's on Borough High Street

88 Borough High Street

Sam Roberts guides this walk through the streets of Bankside hunting for ‘ghostsigns’, the fading remains of painted signs from years gone by. The tour will uncover some of London’s most iconic signs, discover the local, advertising and design history that they convey.

Meet opposite Foxtons on Borough High Street at 12.30pm. This is not a circular route, the walk will finish on Union Street near to the Jerwood Space (may finish after 1.30pm but you are welcome to leave early if you have to get back to work).

Ghostsigns is a research and publishing initiative started by Sam Roberts in 2006. Projects to date have included curating the History of Advertising Trust Ghostsigns Archive, running the Ghostsigns Walking Tour in London’s Stoke Newington, and contributing numerous pieces of writing and photography to specialist and popular publications.

This event is for Better Bankside member businesses, to attend please register here via Eventbrite and use the password Bankside.
