The critically acclaimed Sculpture in the City is an annual summer exhibition showcasing contemporary works by internationally renowned artists in the confines of the City of London, on streets, in squares or on buildings. It usually runs from end June.
2016's sixth incarnation of this popular attraction displayed 20 artworks by 17 artists ranging considerably in scale - from a seven-metre high cast iron head, to a series of delicate and playful lead paper chains - thoughtfully placed between iconic architectural landmarks such as the Gherkin (30 St. Mary Axe) and the Cheese Grater (the Leadenhall Building). Wander the City's public spaces and stumble upon world-class public art, on an urban canvas recognised across the globe.
The route as shown on the SWC route map and the gpx file finishes at Leadenhall Market in the heart of the City, with its multitude of refreshment options.
Leadenhall Market features a total of 22 pubs, delis, bars, brasseries and restaurants. For more details click here.
