About South Bank Venue Hire
Nestled beside the River Thames, the South Bank is a pretty tree-lined stretch in central London that's packed full of stylish restaurants, relaxed bars, and famous attractions such as the Tate Modern, the London Eye, the London Dungeon and Sea Life. Whether you're planning a family friendly day out, leading an educational workshop or a corporate dinner, the South Bank is a great option. Culture-wise, the South Bank is home to the South Bank Centre, National Theatre and BFI theatre, which all make great locations for events.
The history of South Bank can be traced back to the 12th century, when it was primarily used as a landing site for ships travelling up and down the River Thames. Nowadays, the South Bank is very well connected to other parts of London, with Waterloo train station and tube stations nearby, as well as the Thames Clipper stopping alongside the London Eye.
An extremely popular destination in the summer especially, this relaxed area is bustling with energy and offers great views of Big Ben, St Paul's and of course, the iconic London Eye.
A stone's throw from Embankment tube station and Waterloo train and tube stations, the South Bank is super accessible.
