White Cube

Modern art in a minimalist space

Owned by renowned gallerist Jay Jopling, you’ll find this impressive 1970s warehouse-turned-gallery discreetly tucked away on Bermondsey Street. At a massive 58,000 square feet, it’s not only the largest of all three White Cubes, but also the largest commercial gallery in Europe. Aside from a consistent roster of excellent modern art exhibitions, the building itself is striking: high ceilings, open white spaces and a glorious blend of metal, glass and concrete. The bookshop is a destination in itself, with no shortage of tomes worth wasting a few hours on.

Top tip:

There’s no cafeteria and that’s no accident. Built to add to the community, Bermondsey Street is London’s unofficial food capital. Refuel at one of the many restaurants and bars on the street such as UJ fave Pizzaro.
