The toilets here are is gusting and warrant a visit from a health inspector . There is months of grime, dirt up the walls and should be closed down. A complete embarrassment for not only tourists to see but any visitor to the Capital.

Visited especially for the Xmas market. Very disappointing and lacking in atmosphere. Would not recommend.

An interesting part of London with the Eye, great buildings, dining and a view of Westminster across the bridge. This is also where the National Theatre is and the Aquarium, so a great place for families.

Visited the South Bank Christmas market for a change as disappointed in last year at Hyde Park. A much smaller market than Winter Wonderland but much more friendly and fun. A small but good selection of market stalls with a wide range of food stalls....More

South Bank is London's cultural district, home to national centers for arts, film and performance (as well as The London Eye!).

We came up to London to visit the Christmas market on the South Bank, what a huge disappointment, 99% over priced, none festive food and then a small amount of so called gift stalls. We will not bother next year.

For those who are yet to be spoiled by the grand Christmas markets in Europe, the one in South Bank is a good start! It’s not too big but has a nice assortment of stalls and mulled wine to get you into the Christmas mood!

I attended the gala of the jazz week festival and I had the opportunity to stroll along the promenade. There were food kiosks everywhere and you could get street food with a few pounds. Pedestrians should exercise caution when going up or down the steps...More

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
