What to expect

On this self-guided podcast tour, you'll join Colm, a historian and part-time actor, and his mate Dr Ed, as you wander through the dynamic neighborhood of Southbank! From the birthplace of British theatre, the beautiful St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tate Modern, to its history, this tour is rich with cultural, and architectural gems.

Starting at the Globe Theatre, your podcast will bring you to Shakespeare's Globe, a beautiful theatre where you'll venture into the legacy of the great playwright himself.

You'll then head over to the mesmerizing futuristic Millennium Bridge. Enjoy walking over the bridge at your own pace, admiring spectacular views of London. Then head back to visit the contemporary hub of Bankside that houses world-class attractions such as the Tate Modern which houses artworks of prominent artists.

Listen as your audio guide explains the dark past of Blackfriars Bridge. Visit Ernie’s Beach opposite Gabriel’s Wharf on the Southbank and if you fancy some quick nibbles and little artsy gifts in the backdrop of a generally creative and buzzing atmosphere this really is the place! Wandering on, you'll admire the OXO Tower and the quirky architecture of the 'Walkie Talkie' skyscraper. A perfect tour to discover London's Southbank.
