Mid-Week Evening Walk: Sculpture in the City


Sculpture in the City - Contemporary Art Walk
Length: 2-3 km
Walking Time: at least 60 minutes

Meet 19.00 hours sharp outside Liverpool Street Mainline Station, Liverpool Street exit, at street level, by the Memorial for the Children of the Kindertransport on Hope Square (next to a ‘McDonalds’). We should be finishing roundabout the kickoff time of Wales v Portugal (that’s the 1st Semi-Final of Euro 2016, for the Ignoramuses), good thing then that the route finishes at Leadenhall Market, with lots of drinkeries and eateries to choose from to spend more gainful minutes (or hours).

Now in its sixth year, the critically acclaimed Sculpture in the City exhibition has returned to the Square Mile with contemporary works from internationally renowned artists (20 works by 17 artists). There’s not much walking to be done, admittedly, but lots to look at, especially for those that have not worked in the City, as the works are concentrated around some of the most famous recent additions to the London skyline, as well as some of the oldest buildings.

From Leadenhall Market, Liverpool Street, Bank/Monument, Aldgate/Aldgate East and London Bridge stations are just a short walk away.

8 culture vultures on this evening walk in The City. The trail led us initially down busy Bishopsgate, then through Leadenhall Market and some quieter streets and squares. Some interesting works and worth a look if you are in the area. 5 for drinks and dinner in the Lamb Tavern in Leadenhall Market. Good food on the plates, good wine in the glasses and some mediocre football on the telly. Proceedings wound up at about 22:00.
