Southbank

Southbank Area Guide


One of London’s most important entertainment and commercial centres, the Southbank has long been famous for its key role as a theatre and arts hub. The Southbank stretches from Westminster Bridge to Blackfriars Bridge and is home to some of London’s biggest attractions including The London Eye, the Southbank Centre, Jubilee Gardens, the Royal Festival Hall, and the London Dungeon. With so many top attractions on your doorstep, as well as some of the city’s best restaurants and bars, it’s no wonder that property on the Southbank is so highly sought after.

It was the 1951 Festival of Britain that brought the Southbank back from the doldrums and gave it a new lease of life. Since then it’s grown into a major centre for theatre, music and art. Transport is excellent, with several major train stations within the Southbank area including Waterloo, Charing Cross and Blackfriars. The Thameslink Blackfriars station has connected this part of London to the commercial hubs of the City and Canary Wharf, making property on the Southbank particularly popular with international finance and banking workers. The peace and tranquillity of the riverside properties on the Southbank is especially attractive, although bear in mind that if you do take an apartment on the Southbank you’ll be getting an up-close view of the New Year celebrations every year, which centre on the London Eye!
