This is situated south of the river about 5-10 minutes walk from London Bridge station. Our primary visit was the Shard but we took the opportunity to visit some of the amazing landmarks all within a stones throw of each other. City Hall is an...More

Cool architecture. I walked past this area along the river. It was a relaxing and joyful stroll. Good for people watching. It was also conveniently connected to other landmarks.

Attracted by architecture of Norman Foster, we entered the building, which appeared to be open for general visitors. After a bag check, you can go along the ramp down (similarly to famous NY Guggenheim Museum spiral). Downstairs there is a cafe. On the second floor...More

Didn't go inside but around it is full of nice sceneries. You see the city, the Thames River and the Tower Bridge. It is nice for stroll during the day and at night.

Nice building, but less impressive than many adjacent sights (Tower Bridge, Shard, etc.). When going to/from the Tower Bridge, you pass by. Enjoy the nice walkway next to Thames and its main attractions.

It was my first time inside City Hall tonight for a launch event, and I was happily surprised and impressed that a place I've walked past a few times captured my attention once inside. It was both a little disconcerting to walk behind the audience...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
