A lovely part of London to visit. Fab theatres - the National and Shakespeare's Globe - as well as the BFI, Tate Modern, the London Eye, shops, restaurants and of course, the wonderful Thames. Something for every taste and interest.

This is a great area to walk along the Thames river. There is a lot to do and see including the Globe Theatre, Tate Modern, eating at Gabriel's wharf or one of the many pubs along the riverside.

This is one of my favourite areas of London, go for a casual walk and look at people and enjoy the surroundings. There are plenty of places along the route for some refreshments and a variety of attractions including museums, concert halls and cinemas.

South Bank is one of my favourite places to visit, whether it is just for a wander, to browse the street food market or sample the food and drink in the various cafes and restaurants.
