The Southbank Center needs little introduction; the world-famous art space has hosted some of the biggest names in arts and culture globally since its creation in 1951. Showing music, dance, art, performance, and spoken word, it straddles every genre and avenue of culture inside a neighborhood known for innovation and ingenuity. New restaurants and bars are popping up constantly, and you can stop at the national theater, the British Film institute, or the Tate Modern nearby.
