Try to visit Skylon when you are at the Southbank, the service is good and you can enjoy a drink in a spotlessly clean glass. It's nice to see a variety of musical entertainment coming to the Southbank; chart music does not reflect the wider spectrum of talent.


A good place for shows but also to sit and dream away.


The Southbank Centre is fabulous arts hub in London. It stages a wide variety of theatre and musical performances to cater to all tastes. There are always interesting festivals hosted at Southbank. It is the perfect place to windle away a saturday afternoon.


I have not found it possible,on the new website, to get a good listing of classical music. It was very well organized in the magazine, and sketchier in the current website, This is not usable.
