#96: Experience London's South Bank

London's South Bank is a 2 mile stretch along the bank of the River Thames that is a significant arts and entertainment area. The Southbank Centre comprises the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and The Hayward. The Royal National Theatre and BFI Southbank are located adjacent to the east, but are not part of the centre. County Hall is no longer used as the seat of London government and has been converted to house the Sea Life London Aquarium, the London Marriott Hotel County Hall, the London Film Museum and outside is home to The London Eye, and overlooks the Houses of Parliament on the opposite side of the river. It's a great place to spend a day, particularly a nice, sunny spring day.

I had tickets to the Udderbelly Festival at Southbank Centre - an 8 week summer festival of the brightest comedy, circus, family and cabaret shows. We enjoyed a pitcher of Pimms in front of a giant inflatable purple cow before a LOL comedy show. Utter belly laughs...
