An Introduction to Bankside
Bankside is a district of London, in the London Borough of Southwark. Bankside runs from a little west of Blackfriars Bridge, to a short distance before London Bridge. Historically, this area used to lay outside of the City’s jurisdiction, so it was a place of bawdy entertainment, offering practices that were outlawed in the city itself. Now, it is a central London location with far from bawdy attractions such as the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe and Bankside Beach.
