Sweeping Views Along London's Famed South Bank!
Additional Location Information
South Bank is an area of London, England located immediately adjacent to the south bank of the River Thames. It forms a long and narrow section of riverside development that is within the London Borough of Lambeth and partly in the London Borough of Southwark. It developed much more slowly than the north bank of the river due to adverse conditions, and throughout its history has twice functioned as an entertainment district, separated by a hundred years of use as a location for industry. Change to the current use of the South Bank began in 1917 with the construction of County Hall at Lambeth and the Festival of Britain in 1951 redefined the area as a place for arts and entertainment. It now forms a significant tourist district in central London which stretches from the Design Museum in the east to the London Eye in the west. A series of central London bridges connect the South Bank to North London, including the more recent Golden Jubilee and Millennium pedestrian bridges.
The South Bank is a significant arts and entertainment district. The Southbank Centre comprises the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and The Hayward art gallery. The Royal National Theatre and BFI Southbank are located adjacent to the east, but are not part of the centre. County Hall is no longer used as the seat of London government and has been converted for use as a hotel, also housing the Sea Life London Aquarium, the London Film Museum, and is the location of the London Eye. Next to the National Theatre is the London Television Centre (originally the South Bank Television Centre), created as the studios of London Weekend Television and now home to ITV Studios.
Part of the success of the area as a visitor attraction is attributed to the high levels of public transport access. Several main railway terminals are within walking distance of the South Bank, on both sides of the river, including Waterloo, Charing Cross, Blackfriars and London Bridge. The London Underground has stations on or near the South Bank, from west to east, at Westminster, Waterloo, Embankment, Blackfriars, Southwark, London Bridge, Monument and Tower Hill. Accessibility to the north bank is high with connections made, from west to east, over the Westminster, Golden Jubilee, Waterloo, Blackfriars, Southwark, London and Tower bridges. The river is utilised as a means of transport with piers along the South Bank at the London Eye, Royal Festival Hall, Bankside and London Bridge.
