Legible London - Finding Your Way to Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe and around Bankside
On the corners of junctions you will find monoliths providing walking directions for the area. They show attractions within five and ten minutes walk away.
You will find original directional signs on some pavements.
The Personal Touch...
Receive a warm welcome in the summer from our Infobike team. Located outside of Shakespeare's Globe our award winning Infobike service provides leaflets, directions, information and suggestions to get the most out of your visit to Bankside.
Alternatively, Better Bankside Wardens patrol the area and can provide useful information. The Wardens have been trained as London Ambassadors to provide a friendly on-street welcome for visitors.
Bankside is a very safe area to visit, but like all busy areas keep an eye on your belongings when you're walking around and when in bars and restaurants. Use the hooks available and don't leave valuables on show.
You can find public toilets at Bankside Mix and Borough Market as well as in attractions such as Tate Modern and Southwark Cathedral, some may charge for use.
