There are many reasons to love our SE1 neighbourhood. A peek at our Instagram account @BanksideHotel will reveal some of the unsung heroes, secret and stand-out addresses within strolling distance of Bankside. When the hotel opens this autumn, we look forward to handing you a lovingly created map celebrating our extra-special London locale. It will steer you to our favourite life-enhancing and lesser-known spots to eat, drink, shop, stop as well as some of the unexpected people and places in our community, sure to make you smile. Making meaningful connections with our neighbours and cultivating a sense of belonging is what Bankside is all about.
