Travel Photography: South Bank London

The South Bank London is probably one of my most favorite places to take pictures. Not only do you have the Thames, the London Eye, and Big Ben, but you have Charlie Chaplin on a cell phone. It wasn’t hard to fall head over heels with this 24 hour city.

Luckily we had our dearest friend Doug showing us the way from a locals perspective. He left the USA without every looking back to pursue big dreams, big love, and an adventure. His love for the city was contagious. Every time we visit we get a little more of the “in the know” London revealed – whether it be graffiti, parties, art, or food. I’m addicted. We’ve been 4 times and I can’t stop thinking about the next time we will be back.

Make sure to spend some time meandering through South Bank London as there are some awesome street art pieces you can see all around.

South Bank, London, UK

The South Bank is a significant arts and entertainment district. The Southbank Centre comprises the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and The Hayward Gallery. The Royal National Theatre, the Imax super cinema 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 London Marriott Hotel County Hall, Sea Life London Aquarium, the London Dungeon and the London Film Museum. It contains the Jubilee Gardens and is the location of the London Eye. The OXO Tower Wharf is located towards the eastern end of South Bank, and houses Gallery@Oxo, shops and boutiques, and the OXO Tower Restaurant run by Harvey Nichols.

    *Happy sigh*

    I love walking along South Bank and can’t wait to do it again later this year.

      @Heather: I think I would have enjoyed it more had it not been 45 degrees and rainy. 😛 But that is my issue and my need to budget travel in the off-peak season.
