Winding through the heart of London is the Thames – so why not take a stroll by the river along the South Bank? You can cross via the Hungerford footbridge or over Waterloo to reach a haven of culture, sights, shapes and sounds on the buzzy south side. Here’s what you can enjoy when you get there.
Connecting Lambeth to Southwark, The Cut is a vivid stretch of street where one of the oldest parts of London meets the cutting-edge of its cultural scene. First the Old Vic beckons, with a tradition of classic plays with high-profile performers. And then the hip Young Vic flashes, brash and stylish; a wonderful balcony bar provides a great place to meet friends, while the intimate theatres within make for gripping theatre. Just opposite, you can grab some delicious tapas at Meson Don Felipe, or buy beautiful second-hand books from the Calder Bookshop.
