The Andreas Gursky exhibition itself was truly excellent, exploring four decades of his work. The huge photographs of landscapes, crowd scenes and structures were fantastic. What I did not enjoy was navigating the building. While the exhibition spaces were large, well-lit and the photographs well...More

Fabulous exhibition of Andreas Gursky’s wonderful photography at the Hayward. Not cheap but well worth the cost.

Came to experience the new roof lighting and really enjoyed it. I thought it would also have colours but it didn't. Nevertheless really enjoyed the visit.

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively
cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly
