Find out what's on at London's riverside arts complex
This riverside titan of arts and entertainment has morphed and expanded in the past few years securing its position as one of the most attractive cultural hotspots in London, helped by its accessible location and proximity to the National Theatre and Tate Modern.
The Southbank Centre caters for the widest spectrum of people and interests, peddling visual art, music, literature events and performance in its several venues - the Royal Festival Hall, The Hayward Gallery, Queen Elizabeth Hall (including the Purcell Room) and the Saison Poetry Library.
Recently it has become a go-to destination for foodies too. Skylon, a swanky British-themed restaurant within RFH, caters for those with a bit of cash, while a range of chain restaurants (Wagamama, Strada, Ping Pong) jostle for attention alongside the pie-touting Canteen.
