    Where to start? National Film Theatre, second-hand book stalls, mimes, Hayward Gallery, The London Eye. As culurally busy (specially on weekends) as the great capital it is situated in.

    Never imagined that a lift would feature on our list of favourite places but this is brilliant. 'Lift travel' made enjoyable by the ascending and descending scales in a 4-part harmony!

    If you are a frequent visitor the attractions at Southbank or neighbouring venues. Consider getting a membership which gives you access to the "Members Bar" at Level 6 of Royal Festival Hall. Stunning
