    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

    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.

    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.
