Southbank Centre occupies a 17-acre site in the midst of London’s most vibrant cultural quarter on the South Bank of the Thames. This includes Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery. We also curate the outdoor spaces along the riverfront and around our venues.

We believe art has the power to help create a better world for everyone. It was this belief that led to our creation in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain – a major exhibition and festival that gave the nation hope for a brighter future.

Today, millions of people gather at our events each year to enjoy culture from around the world, making us the UK's seventh most popular visitor attraction. We put on over 3,000 concerts, gigs, exhibitions, shows and debates every year, half of them for free. We also work with thousands of children and young people.
