Southwark and the South Bank
The South Bank first blossomed as an arts district in 1951, when it was chosen as the focal point for the Festival of Britain. However, it took another 50 years, and the opening of the London Eye, for the area to finally become a prime visitor destination. Today, it offers an irresistible array of family-friendly attractions, from Shakespeare’s Globe and Tate Modern to the National Theatre and IMAX Cinema.
