London: Tate Modern to Lambeth Palace Walk

Jump to last reply

I thought the views across the river would be nice. Looking to enchance and/or expand this draft walk. I'd appreciate comments on these places and also your addition of additional options for sighseeing, eating, drinking and shopping.

Does anyone also know have far of a walk it is from Tate Modern to Lambeth Palace? Any good pubs in the area? Best time to take this walk? Day or times to avoid?

Start: Take the Tube to Blackfriars

Note: Might have a drink at the historic Blackfriars Pub before starting.

Walk over the bridge and you will see Tate Modern (Free) housed in the old Bankside power station - one of the best collections of modern art in the world.

Walk down Upper Ground and you will see Gabriel's Wharf which has a craft shops, stalls and several cafés. There is a Pret a Manger at 58-60 Stamford St and, you can get a good lunch at RSJ in nearby Coin St.

Next on your route is the Royal National Theatre. The complex offers art exhibitions during the day, and free concerts at 6pm during the week and 1pm on Saturday.

Cross the Waterloo Road and see the Hayward Gallery in its brutal concrete building; nevertheless, many popular art exhibitions are held here.

Next comes the Royal Festival Hall,known for its concerts (note the statue of Chopin outside), and also has cafés, bookstalls, exhibitions, and free concerts -from Wed to Sat at lunchtimes and at other times. The People's Palace, has a full range of food and drink.

Keep going west down Belvedere Road and you will come to the London Eye, and the London Aquarium, one of the largest in Europe.

If you are feeling fit, carry on down the Westminster Bridge Road and you will come to the fascinating Imperial War Museum (Free). The best route back is down Lambeth Road for a look at Lambeth Palace. For seven centuries this was the official residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The nearest Tube to take you home is Lambeth North.
