South Bank

This is my absolute all-time favorite part of London. Go anytime of the year, anytime of day. During the day you can visit the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe theatre, wander down the Thames and see all the sights along the river (the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, the National Theatre) and, my favorite of all, the big second hand book stall under a bridge, where you can find all sorts of bargains.

There’s always something going on: buskers, street performers, skaters under the National Theatre, those terrifying living statues that jump on you every time you walk past. At night, its all lit up with fairy lights in the trees, and there’s loads of bars and restaurants to hang out in – especially good in summer when it’s hot enough sit outside, looking out over the river as the sun goes down. Get off the tube at Westminster, cross the river and you can walk along the South Bank past all the sights to the Millennium Bridge (St Paul’s is the nearest Tube stop). Best of all it’s a completely free day out in London, even the Tate Modern is free, and there’s so much to shoot you can stay all day. All you need is lots and lots of film, and a day when it’s not raining (which is the more difficult part …).
