Why locals recommend it
I often visit the smallest of the Southbank Centre concert halls to see new artists perform. It has excellent acoustics for chamber music, and is an intimate setting for chamber recitals. This is the place to hear young performers who have won some major competitions. It gives them the opportunity to perform in a prestigious venue.

“Tate Modern observation deck - Tate Modern is a great museum to visit for those interested in art. It is now also home to a top observation deck located on the 10th floor. This is even free to access. From this lookout, you can enjoy views to the East, North and West. As sunset is often across the river this makes it one of the best places to go in London for sunset as well as into the blue hour.”
