London is a city filled with art. Despite its numerous world renowned art museums, why not try something a little different? Tate has supplied a map of various art walks throughout the city allowing you the opportunity to explore public works of art; art outside the museum walls. Tate’s guide supplies a map of each walk and a list of approximately ten works with a brief caption about the piece. As of now I have completed four of the ten walks. These journeys led me to explore public art in Kensington and Hyde Park, Covent Garden, Soho and Fitzrovia and Bloomsbury. These are my favorite works from each walk.
