Great place. Walk along the Themes and see old and new mix in. The market is unreal. You can get anything you want to eat from traditional English to modern vegan. Such a great walk.

This is a wonderful area to walk and see the Thames and sights of central London. My favorite is the National Theater, which offers wonderful tours. But go and see a play!

The South Bank is one of the great wonders of London in my opinion. Especially early in the morning for a nice run or late in the evening for a stroll. Midday can be a little crowded with tourists.

When it's crowded, it's crowded! We walked here on a weekday and it was nice, but there wasn't much happening. At other times there are carts and food and festivals etc. Mostly just stroll and take time to look at the cityscape.

Just the thing at sunset - Food at the BFI and a stroll along the riverbank looking over at poor old silent Big Ben .... lovely xxx

Although it does get crowded, I think this area is always full of life with interesting activities going on. It's also a great place to look at Westminster on the other side of the river. Also a fun place to take a boat from.

Response from David S | Reviewed this property |
There are lots of hotels nearby and lots of separate public parking. Rather than fight the London traffic I would do what someone else has suggested: stay out of town (not necessarily as far away as Colliers Wood) and take... More
