Tate Modern Kitchen & Bar

Tate Modern Kitchen & Bar

Nothing quite like sitting down with a cold, crisp glass of wine after a stroll along the south bank. The bar on the 6th floor of Tate Modern also comes with one of the best views in town AND the added benefit of supporting a fantastic arts institution. Later weekend opening times make this a great place to watch the sunset.



A special occasion place - beautifully prepared food and stunning views.

Gourmet Burger Kitchen

Ting at the Shangri-La

On the 35th floor of the Shard, Ting delivers the astonishing views that you would expect. What I didn't expect was the incredible food that was pretty good value for money - £55 for four mouth-watering courses and the prettiest dessert I've ever seen!

"Not only is the Shard the tallest building in the UK, it is also the tallest in the EU."

It is awe inspiring when you stop and think of all the history and events that have occurred right where you are standing beside The Golden Hind...

James Glen

Tower Bridge is one of London's most iconic and beautiful landmarks that I love seeing on my way to work every day.

Dan Woods

For me the Southbank is one of the finest places to take a stroll in the whole of the city.
