This is a lovely place in a nice sunny day. Very vibrant with food market stalls, boat cruises and a lot of activities in the south bank centre for children. It has a great atmosphere for all. Nice fir people watching, walks, history or cruising.

It's a nice walk along the Thames from Southbank towards Lambeth. The Christmas market at London Bridge City has a great mix of food and drink. Well worth visiting at this time of the year.
