Visit the Southbank's Royal Festival Hall

On the south banks of the River Thames is London's leading classical music venue, the Royal Festival Hall.

Built in 1948, the contemporary arts space has some incredible acoustics, but its offering doesn't stop at music. Film screenings, debates on equality and even DJ courses are all held here, encouraging a really varied crowd of visitors.

Dine out on the Southbank

Inside the Royal Festival Hall you'll find a cafe and a fine dining restaurant - Skylon - that has exceptional views of Thames and the capital.

However, it's the banks on the south of the River Thames that will really get your taste buds tingling. The Southbank Centre is teeming with restaurants, food trucks and vendors, and you can pick up anything from a traditional filet mignon to Mexican street food.

Arts and culture overload

The Royal Festival Hall is far from the only arts space on the Southbank. The Royal National Theatre, the Hayward Gallery and the British Film Institute are all Nearby.
