The South Bank Notebook

FORTHCOMING (Autumn 2022): The South Bank Notebook

This book will invite you to go on a quest – to go walking, discovering, feeling, treasure hunting to experience fully one of London’s most vital and vibrant neighbourhoods, one that has often been overlooked and is waiting to be found again … The other side of the Thames, the ‘wrong’ side of the river, the first suburb, gateway to London and who knows … perhaps the place where London hides its soul?

From the very start London was born on the north bank but also from the very start, the south bank played a critical role in the development of this city, which, in due course, outgrew its walls.

The South Bank Notebook investigates the history of the other side and its links with our own times.
