Southbank is a highly desirable residential location.
The cultural heart of London spanning a couple of miles alongside the River Thames, the South Bank is famous for its lively, eclectic, and vibrant art and entertainment brought in by the initial skate park enthusiasts 40 years ago. Landmarks are abundant including Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe, and the iconic London Eye. At night, the Eye glows blue like a giant floating doughnut, the National Theatre becomes the world’s largest crimson building block and the Millennium Bridge is transformed into a space-age bladed walkway. The atmosphere is relaxed and bohemian and you are never far from its quirky eateries, fascinating art galleries, and concert halls.
