Things To Do In London Southbank
London south bank is along the River Thames, its one of the places where you can find entertainment food and pleasure, perfect for a relaxing stroll, along the way you will also find museums theaters, and authentic shops. and it can all be done in one straight walk!
Start in Westminster where Big Ben to admire its beautiful architecture and Parliament that compliments it. while your there you can also see the London Eye from a distance across the river, the other side is where all the action is but if you want to get the best pictures then take it from the Big Ben side or the bridge. Once you are over Westminster bridge and walk down the steps on the left. As you walk along you will first come across Mc Donalds and Namco station. Namco station is a fun place to visit as it has interactive video games, dodge cars, ultra violet bowling, American pool, bars and karaoke - they call it Namoke. If your with kids make sure you give them a time limit because they can be there all day unless you're enjoying it more than they are.
Next to Namco station you will find the Aquarium, this is where you will see 3 floors with over 14 themed zones filled with over thousands of sea creatures, over 40 sharks from different species, you can feed the animals and walk the 'Shark Walk' this is where 4 different species of sharks swim underneath you while you stand on a glass platform that is suspended.
If have internet on your phone and you plan to go then your better off buying a combi ticket online for multiple attractions. as it works out much cheaper for example - London aquarium & London dungeon & madame Tussaud's & London eye is at 33% off.
next you have the EDF energy london eye (which is now known as) is 135m high and is the tallest in Europe it is also the most visited attraction in london, the capsule can hold a maximum of 80 people and the ride lasts for 30 minutes. there is no commentary so you have to make the most of it, the wait can be long but its worth the wait because of the amazing view.
after the london eye and pass the spacious park you will find the busker's, these guys are so entertaining and there a loads of them everywhere. upon these guys you will meet Charlie Chaplin, a Queens Guard, a Roman soldier, a chameleon man on a bike - my favorite, and break dancer and many many more along the way. you can wait for these guys to do something but your better off just giving them some change because when they hear the sound of your change they will react in the most happiest way ever and give your really good photos and play around and stuff. It's really worth it because puts a smile on everyone's faces.
As you walk on you will see the National Theatre, "it has an international reputation for its award-winning shows" this is the place to enjoy theatres, musicals, comedies and shows. there are also free exhibitions and places to lounge and eat, there is always something happening here so its worth a look. generally there is always loads of places to buy food
Oxo Tower Wharf is an award-winning landmark which is owned by the OXO brand. it is home to many UK's innovative contemporary designers and has over 30 retail design studios, cafes, bars, restaurants and exhibitions that are spread out on the ground, 1st and floors. the second to seventh floor are residential apartments. The 8th floor is a well-known restaurant at roof top-level, the view from here is fantastic but obviously comes with a price.
further down you will come across the millennium bridge, this bridge is very popular as it connects St Paul's Cathedral to the Tate Modern.
