Whilst the artwork inside the Bankside Gallery is overshadowed by its more illustrious neighbour, the Tate Modern, it does share with it an unusual home… the Tate was housed in an old power station, whilst the Bankside occupies the ground floor of a 1970s block of flats.

The art gallery is also home to two societies, whose work is on sole show – the Royal Watercolour Society, and the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Many of the paintings and prints can be bought at reasonable prices. (Expect to spend anything between £100 and £4,000.)
