It is also the home venue of a number of the world’s best artistic troupes including the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Sinfonietta. It has fantastic acoustical properties so it is a great place to hear the best musicians in the world performing some of the world’s most spectacular music pieces. The venue houses both paid and free events through the year and is a fantastic place to explore as the venues are beautiful and showcase their position in the centre of one of the world’s most famous city centre.
The Southbank Centre is also next to the British Film Institute and National Theatre which means you can spend a whole day or even weekend getting your fill of culture. It is also surrounding by funky cafes, restaurants and bars so that you can refuel after a long day of seeing the sites and enjoying London shows. After dark, the Southbank centre turns into a hub for skateboarders so if you want to continue the fun after the shows, you can sit and watch the skateboarders do their tricks. The Southbank Centre is known as the birthplace of British skateboarding and has a dynamic skate scene.

These shows in the Royal Festival Hall or Queen Elizabeth Hall are very popular so be sure to book ahead to make sure that you and your kids get a seat to the best shows.
Some of the tickets can be expensive, but most groups release ‘rush tix’ which are cheap tickets released on the day.
