‘They’ call us the ‘Centre of Culture’. This is the South Bank Centre on the Thames, it is home to The artistic aspirations of London (ok one of them).
Built in 1951, as part of the Festival of Britain The Royal Festival Hall was held to be Modernity at its best. To think I had to study this building for my exams. I compared it with the Albert Hall, got well marked down and just scraped through.
Now tho listed it is considered to be a monstrosity. However some of what goes on inside is worth seeing.
This view is the rear but most tourists see this first.
