Blackfriars - explore the best of riverside London

A stay in Blackfriars will leave you perfectly positioned to see all the riverside has to offer. Situated on the bank of the River Thames between Southbank and London Bridge, it's the prime, central location for trips to the river's main attractions, from the Tate Modern and the Globe Theatre to Waterloo and the Southbank Centre. And with Covent Garden and Soho just a tube journey away, you're never far from the best nightlife and entertainment in the capital.

Take the Shakespeare city tour

Follow actor and researcher Declan McHugh as he takes you on a tour of Shakespeare's London. Discover the lesser-known Shakespearean locations and monuments around the capital, including the locations where some of the playwright's best works were written, and seek out the lost sister theatre to the Globe. Starting outside Blackfriars Station, this tour is best taken along with a trip to the Globe Theatre, just across the river.

A day of entertainment at Southbank

Southbank is the buzzing, vibrant centre of the London riverbank. Crammed full of popular restaurants and bars, it's also home to the Southbank Centre, an entertainment venue that regularly hosts exhibitions, festivals and performances. The BFI Imax cinema next door is also worth a visit, playing the newest releases alongside cinema classics. Looking for accommodation in Blackfriars? Travelodge London Central Southwark Hotel, just across the river, is the ideal place to call home while you're exploring Waterloo, while Travelodge London Central Bank places you at the centre of the action in the City.
