As part of Open House London and to celebrate its 25th anniversary, South Bank Employers’ Group will host guided tours to showcase how dramatically South Bank has changed since the early 90s and what the future holds.

Today South Bank is synonymous with being London’s cultural playground. A buzzing area packed with unique events, big attractions and millions of visitors from all over the world (as well as being a favourite destination for Londoners).

Rewind 25 years and the district is virtually unrecognisable. Join the experts on this fascinating tour which showcases just how much South Bank has changed – from how it was perceived by Londoners and visitors alike to the eventual dismantling of Cardboard City.

As well as looking back, you’ll be enlightened on what the future holds for South Bank and the exciting developments that are due to take place in London's much-loved riverside destination.
