This arts centre along the south bank of the river Thames is a sprawling concrete development of interconnected walkways, cultural venues, dining establishments and public squares, which originated as part of the 1951 Festival of Britain. Two of its venues – the Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Hayward Gallery – have recently reopened after extensive refurbishment. In addition to its usual programme of events, it frequently holds festivals and themed seasons, as well as a food market in the space behind the Royal Festival Hall on weekends.
