BEARSPACE Gallery

….They see talent, they spot talent, they nurture it, build it up and let it fly”

Ian Murray, Collector

BEARSPACE is a pioneering art space in London exhibiting award-winning emerging artists who push the boundaries of contemporary art practice. Artists are selected for their response to contemporary culture and philosophy, and their work often displays a conceptual or narrative framework. Artworks pioneer innovative use of materials and rational and are of the highest technical quality.

BEARSPACE prides itself on discovering exceptional artists early on in their careers, and promoting them through gallery exhibitions, art fairs, curated exhibitions and collaborations. We are committed to our neighborhood, and with the sights and sounds of downtown London, we invite you to journey with us through art, culture, and individualism to discover new ways of thinking that allow you to step out of the ordinary.

Merton Abbey Mills

Not only is Merton Abbey Mills London’s only riverside village. Not only is it one of London’s oldest heritage sites with a theatre that dates back over 400 years (part of the once standing Merton Abbey Priory which stood strong from the 12th century when it was built until Henry VIII got his despotic hands on it and tore it down). Not only is it a site of incredible ecological value on London’s River Wandle with, among many other species, a population of eels which are collected, measured and counted every week by the local artisans who report findings straight to London Zoo for research purposes; And a potters wheelhouse with London’s only working watermill, one of only four in the entire country. But this remarkable site is home to an entire community of creative arts and award winning, independent, world food producers. Merton Abbey Mills is a unique site in one of the most diverse cities in the world.

Visit Merton Abbey Mills and find out more about the incredible history, see what still stands from the days of Merton Priory, enjoy the community atmosphere, the great food, art gallery and boutique shops and take in the picturesque views.

St Martin-in-the-Fields

St Martin-in-the-Fields is a church, café, concert venue and shop on the north-east corner of London’s Trafalgar Square.

Whether you want to join us in church, enjoy locally sourced food at a great price, enjoy one of our candlelit classical concerts or just need some time away the central London crowds you’ll find something for everyone at St Martin-in-the-Fields.

We are an active, open and inclusive church with over twenty services a week which everyone is very welcome to attend. People are also welcome to explore the church or just sit quietly anytime there is no service or concert happening. The Dick Sheppard Chapel in our underground spaces is reserved for quiet prayer or contemplation during the day.

If you want to learn more about the church we have audio guides available in English and Spanish, which can be hired from the shop.

The Café in the Crypt is a popular meeting place for Londoners and visitors alike, and serves great value food which is sustainably and locally sourced wherever possible. Next door, the shop sells a wide range of unusual souvenirs and gifts, and it is here you can do brass rubbing.

We also have art and exhibitions on display across the site, particularly in the Gallery, which is located off the Café.
