A whirlwind of world class cultural venues, glorious food markets and atmospheric riverside history
Like the Rive Gauche in Paris, London’s South Bank & Southwark has become a byword for arts and culture. Featuring some of London’s most striking buildings and river views, it’s a great place just to watch the world go by – but once you’ve stopped staring, you’ll find an incredible variety of things to see and do.
In terms of the sheer quantity of attractions, there’s no better place to live in London than Southwark and the South Bank & Southwark. You’ll find theatres and cinemas, including the massive IMAX and the Old Vic, clustered together along the riverside, with the Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe virtually round the corner.
