Book & stay for one or two nights for families up to two adults and two children and receive 50% off the second room.

Everyone is welcome at Bankside because we like to think we are not just a hotel, but more of a social hub located in the heart of London’s creative district, South Bank. No matter what age, dynamic or size of your family there will be no moans of ‘are we nearly there yet’ as the capital’s cultural jewels are on your doorstep. 

Bankside itself is steeped in culture; artwork in all its forms hangs on the walls, and you’ll even sit on and at it, we challenge any child to have a go (with adult supervision obviously) on our see-saw seat on the mezzanine. We like our artists to start young, so you’ll find easels and colouring books & pens in your room. 

The real adventure starts as you step outside, after a quick good morning to the artist’s mannequins by the front door, London’s creative attractions await. There are the headliners such as Tate Modern with its Uniqlo Tate Play , the new free programme of art, activities and play for families of all ages, but that’s just scratching the cultural surface. For any budding Banksys, head over to the Graffiti Tunnel in nearby Leake Street, set up by the man himself. 

Our location on the South Bank also makes getting fresh air and exercise fun. Take a stroll along the river, watch the street performers such as the bubbleoligist or play in the jets of water that make up the Southbank Centre’s Appearing Rooms‘  installation. There’s even a beach! Ernie’s tidal beach on the edge of Oxo Tower and Gabriel’s Wharf is a great spot to run around, or stop to eat an ‘ice cream’.

There’s a great selection of family restaurants, cafes and bars all within walking distance, perfect for when feet need to be rested and thirsts quenched. Art Yard, Bankside’s restaurant has a range of menus to keep stomachs of all sizes satisfied. The two-course kid’s menu, priced at £10, features dishes that appeal to little palates with a splash of colour – an art quiz and lesson in colour theory! 

If all the above wasn’t family-friendly enough already, Bankside is running is offering 50% off your second room. So if you have teenagers who don’t want their screen time monitored, then this is the offer for you. For families with younger children, we have a great selection of rooms that are designed for you to share.
