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.

Why not explore the nearby areas of Southwark, Borough, Elephant and Castle, Kennington, City, Covent Garden, Westminster, Barbican, Holborn and West End

"By Westminster Bridge, there is a doorway on the plinth which holds the South Bank Lion. In the Bond film, Die Another Day, this leads to a fictional tube station called Vauxhall Cross housing Q's workshop!"

Nothing screams London more than the South Bank, the capital's bustling epicentre...

James Glen

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

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