Decided to follow the yellow brick road (steps) to see the Garden Cafe. Found a beautiful natural garden filled with places to relax. Great views over the river, great drinks (wonderful Pimms and Spritzer), tasty nibbles. Beautiful space. Find it. Enjoy.

Nice spot to sit in the sun drinking Pimms, busy this weekend but there were lots of places to perch or you can sit on the grass. Great views of the river and the London Eye.

Went there after a long day in the city. The amount of greenery canceled out a lot of the noise from the traffic. Beautiful place, with a great view, and good priced wine.

Once you know about this place you'll go here often. It's a more relaxing place to sit and look at the wonders of the great city than down on ground level. There's a bar & café area but you can take your own food &...More

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively
