World of Wonders
The studios, spaces and galleries of the South Bank are attracting an increasing number of figures from London’s world-leading fashion and design industry. London Fashion Week stages events at the Bargehouse, whilst some of the world’s most creative artists exhibit at the Oxo Tower and Gabriel’s Wharf.
The neighbourhood has become the jewel in London’s gastronomic crown. At its heart is Borough Market, a magnet for food lovers, drawn to its extraordinary market. Whether it is street food, a traditional English pub, white table cloth dining or a restaurant overlooking the river, the South Bank is a place to feed the soul.
The Quarter’s incredibly diverse annual events include some of the UK’s best festivals. From the glamour of the London Film Festival to the colourful Udderbelly music event held near Hungerford Bridge to The World Street Food Festival, which celebrates the amazing multi-culturalism of London’s Street Food Scene.
