Vauxhall past and present Since the 18th century, when over 10 million revellers flocked to the famed attraction of the Vauxhall Pleasure gardens, Vauxhall has been a destination for Londoners. Today sees Vauxhall at the heart of an emerging Gallery District with the Pleasure Gardens still pulling in the crowds for a series of year-round events, from free open-air cinemas to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern’s famous Gay Sports Day.

Vauxhall Gallery District A century ago Vauxhall was a leading arts-and-craft district, populated by glassblowers, potters and sculptors. Today Vauxhall is becoming one of London’s hottest new arts destinations.

The Vauxhall Gallery District currently consists of Damien Hirst’s £25million, six-room, 37,000sq ft Newport Street Gallery, ex-‘Ragged School’ turned contemporary arts space Beaconsfield Gallery (also located on Newport Street), Gasworks Gallery which specialises in fostering budding international artist and Charles Asprey’s soon-to-be opened Cabinet Gallery on Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. All are within walking distance of each other.
