From torture to war to art, a stroll along London's most famous and historic river. London's South Bank area is a perfect place to enjoy hundreds of years of history as well as a vibrant contemporary city culture. Following several decades of cultural investment, the south side of the River Thames has become an arts and entertainment showpiece. This walk begins at landmark Tower of London, scene of many a gruesome imprisonment over the centuries and home of the crown jewels today. It crosses the river on the fabulous feat of Victorian engineering, Tower Bridge, and then skirts along the river passing Shakespeare's beautifully restored Globe Theatre and ends at the magnificent Tate Modern Gallery.
