First step on low line

Seven railway arches in the heart of Bankside have been turned into a new food hub.

Flat Iron Square, which also includes the Grade-II listed Devonshire House, launched in October, featuring food vendors, restaurants, street food trucks and bars, along with a live music and entertainment venue.

It is part of the Low Line project: promoted and coordinated by Better Bankside, the project is being developed in partnership with Southwark Council, Network Rail and Bankside Neighbourhood Forum. It aims to open up the pedestrian walkway that runs along the base of the rail viaduct in Bankside, so that people will be able to walk from Southwark to Waterloo across a range of new entertainment venues, bars, pubs and restaurants.

Flat Iron Square includes Mediterranean, Mexican and Asian restaurants, pizzerias, bakeries, vintage market Flea and gig venue Omeara.
