The City Of London is the heart of our capital, and has been here for two thousand years. From the arrival of the Romans, right through to the modern day, it has a history that is both fascinating and compelling.
Just over the river from the City itself, is the infamous Southbank (aka Bankside), which has long been associated with distractions and debauchery! There has always been a history of entertainment south of the Thames, and in days gone by, cockfighting, bear baiting, drinking and gambling could be enjoyed, as well as the most debauched entertainment of the day….Theatre.
Every day, thousands of visitors and Londoners alike enjoy all of the excitement that the Southbank has to offer, including Tate Modern, The Golden Hinde, The Clink Prison Museum and Shakespeare’s Globe. The entertainment may be different today than in times gone by, but it’s still a place to enjoy a wonderful afternoon.
