Used to work here a long while ago, before the brutalist concrete got too filthy and the GLC were in charge and looking after the place. It managed to balance a vibrant atmosphere with looking and feeling pleasant. Now it's all grime, rubbish, broken paving stones and chain restaurants alongside the sort of takeaway vans you see outside B&Q. Big disappointment to see what it's turned into.

To me, the overall South Bank runs from Westminster Bridge all the way to London Bridge, providing a spine connecting a wide range of London's cultural and entertainment institutions, with lots of places to eat and drink along the way, including the London Dungeon, Sea World, the London Eye, the Royal Festival Hall, the National Theatre, the Oxo Tower, Tate Modern, the Globe, Borough Market and Southwark Cathedral. If you have a day to visit, it is an enjoyable area to explore from one end to the other; otherwise do as I do and dip in and out of different parts . Last weekend, I was at Tate Modern and the London Bridge area; today it was the core of the South Bank around the South Bank Centre. The institutions on the South Bank comprise one of the largest arts complexes in Europe with the Royal Festival Hall which dates back to the Festival of Britain in 1951, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room (1967), the Hayward Gallery (1968) and the National Theatre, along with the discrete British Film Theatre (1957) that sits under and alongside Waterloo Bridge. For architects, they comprise a collection of Modern and Brutalist buildings which have their unique character. Although the doors are closed in the current health situation and the lights in the performance venues are dimmed, visitors are increasing, with many of the restaurants, cafes and pop-up units open along the river, and many outdoor areas in which to sit and enjoy a drink or meal in the sunshine or, as today, when the weather was threatening to be a little more stormy

Going to London means getting to know the Thames. I always like to walk along the banks, and to know places that only people who live in the city know.

Great area of London. Lots of lovely sights and things to do. Jubilee Gardens, Festival Hall, South Bank Centre, British Film Institute, views of Houses of Parliament, Ministry of Defence, the City of London, etc, etc. All well served by Tube and train from Waterloo. We had a lovely family holiday using this area as our base.

We walked down part of Southbank, from the London Eye to Blackfriar's Bridge. There was plenty to see and do along the way including many restaurants, pop up food and item stalls as well as a book and Christmas markets. It was quite nice and fairly clean. It also wasn't particularly crowded (it was in some areas like where they had the food stalls) so it was quite enjoyable.
