Owner description: South Bank is a beautiful riverside stretch in the heart of London featuring the Coca-Cola London Eye, SEA LIFE London Aquarium, Imperial War Museum London, Southbank Centre, National Theatre, top hotels, shopping, dining and more. Located walking distance from Covent Garden and Westminster, it is the perfect location for a relaxing stroll or evening of entertainment. Known as the capital's cultural playground, there is a packed programme of art, theatre, exhibitions, music, film and free events make South Bank an inspiring place to explore.

Couldn't believe how much the South Bank had improved since I worked in London many years ago. It's crowded at the weekends but so worth it. You can feel the energy, diversity and creativity of London. Really cool froyo from a bright pink technicolor double decker bus - street eats from retro food stalls - entertainers - sand artists - musicians - art works - view of the river - skate park. My teenagers loved it and we stayed for hours in the sunshine.

I've been here many many times, each time was more uninteresting than the last. They have a ferris wheel and some food, and a little park, and some pubs... just like everywhere else in London basically except there are so many people often it is hard to walk.

We love strolling along the Southbank as every time we visit there is always something different to see. However the area around the London Eye was very crowded this visit.
