Located south of the river, London’s Southbank attracts over 4.5 million visitors each year, all of which arrive to see the some of the most incredible landmarks including the London eye, The Shard and Oxo tower. Located within the centre is London’s busiest train station Waterloo.
The City of London is undoubtedly the financial epicentre of not just London or Europe, but perhaps the world. As it’s being home to several of the world’s biggest banks, the Bank of England and the London Stock Exchange this reputation is certainly merited, despite being challenged by the emergence of Canary Wharf as another key financial district in the 1980s.
This has made the ‘Square Mile’ one busy place to work – of the 10,000-odd people who live there, London’s core swells by 40 times as much, with 513,000 people – roughly 10% of the capital’s workforce – commuting in to work there every day.
The Southbank is now home to a luxurious new build development ‘Southbank Place’ Southbank place developer by the Canary Wharf Group and featuring a range of 1, 2- and 3-bedroom high specification apartments. Southbank Place is surrounded by vibrant outside space, new restaurants and retail space.
