London Haunts | The South Bank

This particular Saturday feels a lifetime ago, though it was only the beginning of May. A rare weekend day in the city with a pair of oldest, dearest friends. Raised on the periphery of the capital, the South Bank was our go-to downtown hangout as teenagers and I still hold a soft spot for the place – for its pleasingly familiar mélange of brutalist architecture, cultural offerings and excellent coffee. It’s easy to forget in the haste of moving from A to B, weekday woes and commuter chaos, that we live in a world-class city. The South Bank always reminds me of that.

P.S. There’s an excellent interactive exhibition about immigration at the Southbank Centre showing until September – ‘Adopting Britain’ – that is really worth a visit.
