Plumstead - The Lurkers

The Lurkers are a group of artists sloping up and down the country (and into the nooks and crannies of London), on the hunt for natural influences to fuel their creativity. They’ve put the lurk into plenty of secret spots, but here are their five favourite London ones.

‘Un-earthed a colony of homeless Lithuanians who had taken residency within the walls of this decrepit factory. Pleasant fellows! Lovely art deco furnishings to be seen.

Hendon - The Lurkers
‘Tranquil setting to this time capsule of working class heritage. The Morning Star paper of 1982 in pristine condition, was found amongst the decaying remains.’

Holborn Viaduct - The Lurkers
Holborn Viaduct
‘A maze of tunnels beneath the streets of London, leading to other mazes. Reverberating noises of trains, cars and talking gave this location a uniquely surreal quality.’

Camden Town - The Lurkers
Camden Town
‘Atop a lofty London tower-block we discovered this room, slightly reminiscent of a sub-marine – with the irregular and deafening sound of lifts being called to and from the floors below us.’

Whitechapel - The Lurkers
‘Dimly-lit corridors covered in 80s scrawling on the walls, providing access to a roof with stunning 360 degree views of London.’
