    The home of British art & theatre.

    A former no-man's land south of the river has fast become one of London's most exciting, buzzing areas. Catch a show at the National Theatre or peruse the many floors of the Tate Modern. Make sure to visit the viewing platform for uninterrupted views across the Thames.

"One walks the Thames less for the scenery than the history. Almost every mile brings to mind a historical event or a work of art."

- Jonathan Schneer, Historian
