Enjoy Southbank and beyond while staying in

- 17/04/2020

As restrictions on non-essential activities like dining out at restaurants, catching a theatre production, wandering through an art gallery, or going to the gym begin to tighten, it is vitally important we continue to keep doing things we love to maintain normalcy in this unprecedented time.

We are all different and like different things. Fortunately, there are several businesses and institutions throughout Southbank and beyond that are adapting to this time of change and creating new ways to stay connected with the community.

To keep you inspired while indoors, we have created a list of social distancing-friendly activities, and offerings to consider whenever you are looking to do something exciting or adventurous!
