Waking up and strolling along the Southbank is definitely a great morning commute. I like to walk along the Thames at 7am with a coffee in hand, watching the morning runners go by and staring across the river at the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben (whose tolling will assure I’m not late for work).
Southbank is also a hot spot for tourists: visit later in the day and experience the buzzing and vibrant surroundings. Watch the street performers and artists, sit by the river and people watch, and make sure you come back when the sun goes down and see London lit up whilst you dine and drink in style at one of the many restaurants and bars around. London’s calling!
