3. See Peckham’s Old Waiting Room Transformed by Sarah Sze

For almost 50 years, the Victorian waiting room inside Peckham Rye Station has lain unused - until today!

Inside this restored space, Sarah's work will feature a series of cascading lines that spill out from the centre of the once disused room.
