The South Bank

The South Bank has a lot going for it. As well as the massive waterside Southbank Centre, it’s home to a host of tourist attractions including the enormously popular London Eye. With most of London sitting on the north bank of the Thames, the views from here are the best on the river, and thanks to the wide, traffic-free riverside boulevard, the whole area can be happily explored on foot. Just a short walk away lies the absorbing Imperial War Museum, which contains the country’s only permanent exhibition devoted to the Holocaust.
