Contemporary, dynamic, cultural, Bankside is the new heart of London in the south bank of the River Thames. It's Britain's fastest growing visitor destination, with fascinating sites where historical heritage blends with contemporary style, creating a unique atmosphere. Nowhere in London brings the past to life so vividly or offers such a concentration of attractions and internationally acclaimed arts venues, excellent cuisine and great shopping.
Strategically located in a central area, Bankside is linked to the City by a short walk across the Millennium Bridge, and forming a natural riverside extension to the east of the South Bank. It is refreshingly pedestrian friendly and every time you turn a corner another cultural highlight reveals itself.
These are just a few of many attractions in Bankside: Shakespeare's Globe,Tate Modern - UK's largest museum of modern art housed in the impressive Bankside Power Station, the Rose Theatre, Southwark Cathedral, Vinopolis - wine tasting experience, Golden Hinde, the Clink and the amazing Borough Market.
Enjoy the Riverside walk and beyond, and discover a new secret around every corner.
