The Turner Prize continues to divide opinion much like Marmite with many people questionning where Art becomes Art. If debate is being stimulated then Serviced City Pads sees this as a good thing for the Art world, increasing the general public’s exposure to Art that they would otherwise have no concept of can only have a positive effect both on society and education. This annual art event has been running since 1984 with previous einners including Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin.

Central London is really easy to travel across (despite it’s size) as it is served by an efficient underground tube system as well as it’s famous Red London buses.
