Amazing space with the view of the spectacular Tower Bridge and the City Hall building. Went there a few weeks ago for the free Gospel Choir event and loved it. The location also lends itself for a wander around the area to explore other food and drinks options along the Thames. 

there doesn't seem to be any calendar of events going on there, so goodness knows how you find out!!!


I recently saw the Paddington Bear film for free at the Scoop. It's an excellent set up and you can't beat the location! Throughout the summer there are lots of free events happening - a big screen set up to watch Wimbledon, theatre and films. 

I would definitely recommend either bringing something to sit on or renting one of the cushions available for the and bringing a blanket as it can get very chilly sitting by the river for a long period of time. The Scoop has a1000 person capacity but it's definitely best to arrive in plenty of time as the events aren't ticketed.

Theatre, music and dance all in a great space and all for FREE!

Really amazing and lovely and a great and affordable night out. In between plays you can take in the scenery of the Thames and London lights with the tower bridge backdrop... Amazing!

J'adore! what a romantic place to watch all sorts of genre of theatre between those two prestigious bridges Tower Bridge and London Bridge. The perfect place to bring your date, first walk on Queen's Walk from London Bridge then stop for a good value dinner at La Cote. For an easy digestion, bring your date to the Scoop to watch a short play, the best way to relax and to enjoy a romantic evening under the stars and the Tower Bridge light before ending your night in the arms of your beloved.

Great place for free theatre and music events in the summer in glorious iconic surroundings. I've seen bands, opera, greek tragedy, farce, kids performances, weird performance art, community choirs, there really is a diverse range of events on offer, for which you can check the schedule on their website. Bring a rug, pop down the road to the local supermarkets to stock up on dinner or snack food and a drink and the drop in and grab a slab, you're in for a treat!

Great open space, great views, mixture of locals and tourists. Cultural and educational and FUN. Aaaand free :)

Great place for the great time in London. And it's for free!! I love it!;))

The Scoop is the best place to relax and listen to music in an oudoors riverside setting on a warm Summer evening in London.

I love the architecture and design of the scoop. What A perfect name!! It just scoops into the floor Of the embankment of tower bridge and gives You a feeling of falling into the earths centre.

I watched a play about the Greek mythology. It was really good. The weather was good too, which makes the outdoor theatre really interesting. I will recommend to make a night of it being cushions, blanket (in case u get cold) n a picnic!
