London's South Bank Is The Ideal Spring Destination

This is a sponsored article on behalf of South Bank London.

Wondering how to make the most of the Easter holidays? Head to the riverside for a whole host of exciting events this spring. South Bank London, the ultimate authority on events across the district, has rounded up the highlights here.

For a city-inspired event, check out Urban Festival at Southbank Centre. From 1-17 April breakdancing battles, workshops, and performances celebrate the best of street culture in our crazy capital. Why not make the most of London's famous river afterwards, and take a ride in a Thames Clipper or the quirky Duck Tour boat/bus hybrid?

Learning is always a good thing — brush up on your nursing knowledge at the Florence Nightingale Museum, where there'll be kids activities such as Easter bonnet making workshops from 3-12 April. For even more Easter events, make a move to Gabriel's Wharf on 15 April — there'll be egg hunts for little Londoners, and a scavenger hunt just for adults.

Of course, theatre is a big part of South Bank's identity. Angels in America at the National is a new play by the acclaimed director of War Horse. It's in two halves of three hours though, so make a day of it. Elsewhere, Daniel Radcliffe stars in the Old Vic's rendition of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead.

Raining? Why not settle yourself in for a film at the IMAX or BFI South Bank cinema? Beauty and the Beast and Logan are both set to be box office stars over the next few weeks. It's also worth checking out the BFI and Radio Times Television Festival from 7-9 April — it's the largest and most prestigious television festival in the UK.

One thing is for certain — you'll always have something incredible to do if you head to the South Bank. To get all the info and a roundup of what's hip and happening in the area, South Bank London is your go-to authority —  check out the Explore section to be thoroughly inspired and start planning your spring.
