What to do while staying in your South Bank holiday apartment
While you are staying at one of the holiday apartments in South Bank, don't forget to check out the list of events at Southbank Centre. This world renowned arts centre has various art, music, dance and performance events, which involve world famous performers. Some events are free. The Old Vic, a 200 year old theatre and National Theatre also offer wonderful productions, though you could also head to the West End of London for an even wider selection of musicals and plays.
For authentic British food by the River Thames, there is OXO Tower Restaurant, which also caters to vegans. With South Bank holiday accommodation very near to key attractions, visiting the London Eye, London Dungeon, SEA Life London Aquarium, Florence Nightingale Museum and Bargehouse shouldn't be a problem. A 30-minute ride in one of the world's highest observation wheels, the London Eye will give you a panoramic view of 40 kilometres.
Those who love state of the art technology should not miss a visit to BFI IMAX, which offers 2D, 3D and IMAX technology movies. Make the most of your South Bank holiday accommodation by filling up your day with activities from morning to evening. During the evenings, take a stroll along the Riverside Walkway and enjoy the tranquil peace of the River Thames. A visit to Bernie Spain Gardens will give you a chance to tune into the workings of Mother Nature at her best.
If city breaks are your thing and you want to see more of real London life but you're conscious about watching the pennies, stay in North London apartments – but make sure you visit the South Bank while you're here!
