Walk the Low Line

15 June 2024

15:00 -17:30

This 3km guided walk will showcase how interior and exterior spaces are being transformed along Southwark’s mighty Victorian railway viaduct to create the Low Line - a walking route through the alleys, streets and squares of Bankside, London Bridge and Bermondsey.

The walk will highlight recent physical interventions that help embed the viaduct back into the neighbourhoods through which it runs. It will highlight opportunities for a Low Line Commons, bringing greenery and nature to create a linear park, a strategy that won the New London Architecture overall prize in 2021.
Attendees will enjoy the walk as a cross-section of London’s diversity - through renowned visitor destinations, eerie backstreets, and surprising new architectural features.

The walk will be led by members of the Low Line working group, from three business improvement districts in Bankside, London Bridge and Bermondsey, and Southwark Council. The Low Line is an excellent example of how these partners are working together and with colleagues from the worlds of design and architecture to reimagine how an urban railway viaduct can support urban placemaking. The original idea came from the imagination of one local resident 10 years ago, and we will be celebrating this decade of progress.

Unfortunately due to the length of this urban walk, we can not make it wheelchair accessible. Due to the trains overhead, it can also be difficult to hear, though we try to overcome this.
