For the first time, we are excited to officially open our doors to visitors on Sundays. Bermondsey Street on a Sunday is a special place offering a refuge from the chaos of the city. Established in 1976, London Glassblowing showcases the work of Peter Layton, his resident artists and specially invited guest artists.
17 November - 23 December
Christmas at London Glassblowing is officially in full swing!
