Long and narrow, this riverside neighborhood sits on the South bank of the Thames and includes more of the modern landmarks and attractions while giving its visitors a view of the iconic North Bank. A walkway stretches along the river for pedestrians. For an even better view, one can take a ride on the London Eye or climb to the top of the glass-plated and bulbous City Hall. Next to the Eye is the lush green space of the Jubilee Gardens.

Below the tall and easily recognizable OXO Tower sits Gabriel’s Wharf Market. Set back from the river, the market is made up of craft shops, boutiques and cafes as well as some stalls and kiosks selling jewelry, ceramics and clothing. A short walk away, closer to the river, is the Riverside Walk Market specializing in art and second-hand books.
