Explore Eel Pie Island

Though your author has visited Eel Pie Island before, on most days the only accessible area is the bridge, and a small path that picks its way through the attractive mishmash of little houses and studios. That is why it is so exciting that visitors are being given one of their rare annual opportunities to properly explore the island this weekend and next.

Alongside the various homes, the private island at Twickenham is home to 26 artists studios, arranged in and around the island's working boatyard. These are real working artists' studios, rather than galleries, and you will, we are told, be given an opportunity to talk to the artists and purchase or commission new works of art.

The studios are open today and tomorrow, and also next weekend, 18th and 19th June from 11.00am-6.00pm. For more information, visit http://www.eelpieislandartists.co.uk/, or for more information on loads to do this weekend, see this excellent post on Diamond Geezer
