The lively South Bank is always a hive of activity. Running along the southern bank of the River Thames, it passes several well-known sights as well as providing great views of the famous buildings on the north bank, including Big Ben, St Paul’s cathedral and the Tower of London.
Key attractions on the South Bank include: the London Eye, a modern take on a ferris wheel, providing panoramas over the city; the London Dungeon; the National Theatre; the Tate Modern; and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, an accurate reconstruction of the original Globe that burnt down in the early 17th century.
Other attractions in easy reach include the fascinating Imperial War Museum and bustling Borough Market, filled with some of Britain’s best produce.
