Some may call it ‘Elephant and Castle’s best-kept secret’, all we know is that if you want to see hands-on creative artists and designers in their element, you’ve got to check out Open Studios at Pullens Yards.
Just a short walk from Elephant & Castle tube station, just off Walworth Road, sits Pullens Yards – a series of three adjacent 19th century residential workspaces, housing some of Southwark’s (and London’s) best independent creative.
Twice a year, this hidden treasure of the area flings open its doors and welcomes visitors to take a look inside, witnessing the creators in action – and chatting about their work, of course.
Comprising three unique areas, Pullens Yards are a fascinating look at both the Victorian-era layout of the workshops and cobbled streets, as well as the bubbling creative hubs behind each of the doors.
Clements Yard, Peacock Yard and Iliffe Yard each has its own individual style and vibe, with artists and creative across London choosing to make this quiet corner of Elephant and Castle their home.
A range of diverse and established creatives inhabit the Yards, including (but not limited to!) jewellery designers, videographers, wood turners, perfume creators, photographers, bespoke dressmakers, illustrators, painters, ceramic artists, an escape room and even a brewery (!).
