Things to do in London Blackfriars

Where to begin with all the things to do in Blackfriars? For the culture vultures out there, the Tate Modern boasts a number of exhibitions, classes, talks and fairs and, for any art enthusiast, this has to be close to the top of your list of must-see attractions. Similarly, the Shakespeare Globe plays host to some of the greatest productions ever made and is steeped in years of performing arts history.

Having served the people of London for 1,000 years, it stands as the capital’s oldest food market and the sights, smells and sounds alone are well worth the trip – and that’s even before you try any of the free samples!
