Full marks to the London SE1 site for picking up the story that the Hungerford Coach Park next to Jubilee Gardens may be looking at a bit of a makeover this summer.

According to the site, a company called South Bank Beach Ltd has applied to Lambeth Council for permission to temporarily turn the Coach Park and part of Queen's Walk into a beach and outdoor cinema.

"Planned entertainment includes beach volleyball, mobile barbecues, a mobile library, children's activities, water spray area, mobile masseuses, yoga and community awareness campaigns."

Of course, loyal Londoners will ask what's wrong with the 'original' South Bank Beach? Here's a photo from Pixelthing.com which shows you just how good it can look.

The photo' at the top of the post however is from South Bank beach in Brisbane. If they manage to make Hungerford Coach Park look anything like that then we're cancelling our summer holiday and staying right here.
