Wednesday, April 20, 2016 - 21:15

A Southbank Stroll

Distance: 4.27 miles                                                             Est. Time: 30 mins

Start: Imperial War Museum                                                 Finish: The London Eye

The Imperial War Museum, with its imposing twin artillery guns, provides the backdrop to the start of this route. Continuing through Elephant & Castle and through Bricklayers Arms, runners will be rewarded with the majestic site of Tower Bridge. Turning left onto the hustle and bustle of South Bank the proud hull of HMS Belfast can be seen bobbing in the Thames. Passing London Bridge you cannot miss contemporary masterpiece Tate Modern in contrast to the medieval simplicity of Shakespeare’s Globe. The cultural trail continues as the stylish glass curves of BFI IMAX gleam in the sunlight, closely followed by the stark brutalism of Denys Lasden’s National Theatre and The Royal Festival Hall. The route culminates with one of the capital’s most-renowned modern landmarks, The London Eye.
