The bougainvillea walk, the large , clean, natural looking swimming area and man made beach, the shady nooks, the stretches of grass, the river alongside, the backdrop of a major and accessible city - across the river, the entertainment precinct, the enormous "wheel", upmarket and casual eating areas and of course the nearby street of...

Having spent a very busy day at the Museum & Sciencecentre South Bank was a great way to cool off, finish off a day out with a simple dinner before catching a train home with a tired but happy grandchild

Great day out plenty of different pools and the kids parks are great. Market is on over the weekend which is good. Food outlets are fare. Can work out expensive to park but if a full car maybe cheaper than the bus
