Located between Oxo Tower Wharf and Gabriel's Wharf, Bernie Spain Gardens is a pleasant green space to stop off on a riverside walk along the South Bank from Tower Bridge to Waterloo Bridge. Named after Bernadette Spain, a local community activist who was part of the Coin Street Action Group which prevented the demolition of local houses, the gardens are home to the Coin Street Festival, an annual series of free summer events held in June and July.
