Bankside is ideally located for exploring London with easy access to all parts of the city!

Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe, London Eye, Vinopolis, London Dungeon, HMS Belfast, St. Pauls, Tower Bridge, Tower of London and Millenium Bridge are all within easy walking distance.

The West End is easily accessible from Bankside either by walking along the Thames or jumping on the Jubilee line from Southwark or London Bridge stations, both less than ten minutes walk away. The City is a short walk over Southwark Bridge with the Docklands, Canary Wharf, the O2 arena and ExCeL also easily accessible via the Jubilee line.

Please note: Blackfriars underground station will be closed until late 2011. The circle and district lines can be accessed via Temple Station a 15 minute walk from Bankside House. Overland rail services are still serving Blackfriars Station. Directions below have been updated to reflect this.
