    Loved the South Bank especially around the Mondrion where there are plenty of things to do. It's also a great place for a nice long run along the River Thames.

    Walk from Borough Market along Bankside until you reach the London Eye. There will be lots of people on this stretch if it's a bright day and tons of activities happening.

    Lots to do here from walking down by the river and enjoying the view to going to one of the many cafes' or entertainment spots. Avoid 'Zen Cafe' as it's highly tourist marketed and not cheap.

    A wonderful place for a casual stroll on a sunny day. Start at the London Eye and finish up at Tower Bridge.

    For centuries the riverside district was dominated by industrial plants, but bombings in World War II ruined the area. The Festival of Britain transformed South Bank a cultural hub in 1951
