Located with river views in Southwark’s Bankside district in London, the Bankside Hotel has become much more than a place to lay your head. With a focus on creating a social, gallery-style environment, the hotel has brought work, rest and play together for its guests since it opened in October 2018.

This year, Bankside has partnered with Contemporary Collective, an online art gallery that helps support and promote the work of emerging artists internationally. Together they’ve created a Makers in Residence programme to take over the ground floor of the building, which is hosting a new young artist every two months. As well as showcasing their art, each maker is also hosting workshops for guests and visitors, in line with the hotel’s community values.

While fine art graduate Victoria Heald occupied the space from March-April, you can now visit London-based artist Michael Wallner for the months of May and June. During his residency, Michael seeks to highlight the extent to which art surrounds us in everyday life – from architecture to working with data and statistics about the city and its commuters.

Italian Architecture graduate Ernesto Romano will take over the residency in July, followed by Leeds University Fine Art Graduate Sophie Derrick in August, Wimbledon College of Art MA graduate Darren McPherson in September and Kent and London based artist Rod McIntosh from November to December.

Bankside hotel is also now offering a mind-body programme, courtesy of London-based wellness service Motion to Mind™️.

Founded by John Allison MSc MA FRGS (a licensed HeartMath Stress Management coach and expert FirstBeat Lifestyle Assessment provider who previously served 24 years in the British Army), Motion to Mind blends physical and mental fitness, offering a holistic approach to personal training.

At the hotel, you can take part in the programme’s one-hour workouts along the Thames on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6.30pm, as well as resilience training to tackle negative thinking, and a half-day trek through the Chiltern Hills. If you’re staying for three days or more, guests can also take a Firstbeat Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Lifestyle Assessment, from which John will record individual client’s data and offer a comprehensive one-hour debrief session with personalised combative strategies.
