Southbank Centre

Art for everyone.

In the whole city, there's no better place to spend an afternoon when you're not really sure what to do. In these cases, cross Westminster Bridge towards the South Bank area and go along the river in a northerly direction to please your eyes with a view of the city. After a short walk, you'll find the complex which is dedicated to the greatest art in Europe. If you're not going to any particular event, don't worry because the centre has a continuous calendar of activities which are mostly free, so simply go and discover it. You’ll find classical music concerts for accompanying lunchtimes, to sculpture or painting exhibitions for all tastes. The parents can have something to eat or drink in the central area while the children can enjoy the play area. Between April and July, a multitude of concerts, monologues, theatre plays etc. are performed in the Royal Festival Hall. During the rest of the year, it's incredibly difficult not to find anything interesting to see: food fairs, poetry readings, theatre, concerts, all kinds of art exhibitions and fashion shows, which are only some examples of an organism that's been exhibiting art to everybody for more than 60 years.
