Uncover the story of Bankside: London's Other Side - 6 May

Join a lunchtime tour of Bankside to discover its rebellious history on the other side of London's mainstream
Wednesday, 6 May 2020

Tuesday, 5 May 2020

Spend a lunchtime exploring Bankside, its back streets and hidden histories with Mr Londoner, aka Antony Robbins, a speaker, guide and a former Museum of London director.

16th century ‘Banksyde’ was outside the walls of the city, making it a natural landing place for outsiders and free thinkers. It became notorious as London’s rowdy pleasure quarter full of theatres, brothels and gambling dens. Today, rich in art, entertainment and culture, Bankside has a bold and independent spirit shaped by its past - an ‘otherness’ that inspires creative thinking.

Hear more about the area you work in. Notice clues to the past which are hidden in plain sight and some stories you might not have heard...

RSVP via Eventbrite here using the password 'Bankside'.
