It is hard to explain the attraction of a stroll along the South Bank. It always feels as if you have ducked out of the heart of the real action - just across the river are the centres of power, of government, of commerce, of popular entertainment... and here you are, looking across at it all. (This is said with all due respect to the great Brutal Culture Sheds of the RFH, National Film Theatre etc.!)

The fact is, at any time of year, it is kind of magic. I don't know how many times I have walked every section from Westminster to Tower Bridge - there is always something to see and do, with food options better and better. Special highlights are often street food behind the RFH, and the little gallery at the OXO tower, which often has great photo exhibitions.

always love walking along the south bank on a Sunday morning when we visit London. Great views of Westminster and the city of London, lots of street artists, book stalls and eateries.

nice place to relax.

I have noticed the number of restaurants and bars have increased. To me it is still a great place to wander around, look at the river views and see the London skyline.

This is a great place for restaurants, cafes, and shops, not to mention people watch. There is always something going on here.

It's become the promenade of choice with theatre, restaurants, stalls, buskers, attractions all to walk by or walk in. It's a must do for locals and tourists alike and we do. Often.
