You can't move history
Why locals love it
Over the past 40 years London's skaters have organically created an icon from the leftover urban spaces of Southbank Centre. Overcoming numerous attempts at redevelopment, London's own Mayor Boris Johnson recently voiced most of the city's thoughts: that the park is the "epicentre of UK skateboarding and is part of the cultural fabric of London"
Why you should visit it
This isn't a just skate park, this is a living interpretation of London's public space. If you're growing tired of experiencing the same manufactured and repetitive retail zones that litter most city river fronts, come down and observe the friendly and engaging way the local's use their city. Lovers of street art won't be disappointed either!
The park is undercover so its a great place to check out if its starts to rain, which is very possible!
