Walking much of the South Bank last week, we chanced upon Gabriel's Wharf. What a lovely place; independent speciality shops, bars and great value cafes. A super, open central area, views over The Thames. A delight!

This is a lovely secluded area of the Southbank that is tucked away from the hussle and bustle of the mainstream areas but is well worth a visit just to see the little unique shops and restaurants
