London's Southbank

In 1977, the Silver Jubilee of Elizabeth II marked the 25th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne. For that, the southbank of the river Thames was made more accessible for walkers. Access to lots of cultural venues like the National Film Theatre, the Hayward gallery and, later, Tate Modern is made simple. Also later, the Millennium Bridge, which despite its name, only partially opened for the millennium... and the London Eye became part of the Southbank landscape. Near the National Film Theatre, there is also a skating area which currently is facing difficulties from the authorities. It would be a shame to move it though...!
