Father's Day at Southbank
Now, in terms of what’s on offer in South Bank, there are far too many things to list. Naturally, we’ll only be picking things that we believe will form part of a great father’s day adventure. The Martini Trolley at OXO Tower restaurant is perfect for a visit if your father’s a fan of cocktails, gin, and martinis. The cocktail and drinks escapade begins with The Martinez – an 1887 drink and ends with Bond’s tipple of choice, the Vesper. Reservations to this venue will have to be made.

If you’re looking to reduce your dining cost, and are celebrating on a budget, Chino Latino at Park Plaza Riverbank is the kind of place that makes you feel like you’re splurging out without have to pay an exorbitant bill. Visitors can enjoy a bento box and a glass of prosecco for just £15.

Following on from that, you can complete the afternoon or dinner meal and drink combination with a visit to the famous Old Vic theatre. Found close to Waterloo station, this venue has been dazzling audiences with spectacular theatre displays since 1818. But if you’re enjoying a stroll down the South bank, want to add some variety to your day, consider visiting the Imperial War Museum gift shop, or more appropriately, the Skylark galleries at OXO Tower – conveniently found in the same venue as the Martini Tower. And if you’re enjoying your father’s day out with family, and want the kids to also have a fun time, London Dungeon is found nearby by and delights adults just as much as children. And then follow it with a city cruise along the riverside bed with the Elvis cruises.
