Team London Bridge and London Festival of Architecture have teamed up with Gourmandizing London to transform this Bermondsey Street substation, celebrating London Bridge’s unique food culture.

New mural ‘Buzz’, created by artists Nick Woodford. Matthew McGuiness and Jason page evokes the flavours and sounds of neighbouring restaurants and bars; Pizza Pilgrims, Honest Burgers, Comptoir Libanais and Nine Lives.

"Chatting with local restaurateurs, we saw a strong theme emerge around their journeys of food discovery. As we developed this exciting project in collaboration with the LFA and Team London Bridge, the substation offered us the opportunity to capture and share these from a new creative perspective - a canvas from which to transmit a sense of the audible energy behind the diverse local food culture."

- Nick Woodford

Gourmandizing London connect art and cooking with South London communities, the collective came together during McGuiness’ personal cooking experience as a head chef in London.

Buzz is one of many projects Team London Bridge are delivering along the Low Line; a new walking destination for London spanning the Victorian rail viaducts through Bankside, London Bridge and Bermondsey. 

Our business community is welcomed to inform the process as we start to deliver more projects, by becoming a Friend of the Low Line.

Delivered in partnership with London Festival of Architecture, Network Rail and UK Power Networks.
