Bankside is a district of London, and part of the London Borough of Southwark. Bankside runs from a little west of Blackfriars Bridge, to a short distance before London Bridge. Historically, this area was a place of bawdy entertainment, it used to fall outside the City’s jurisdiction, so it was free to allow practices outlawed elsewhere. Now, however, it is central London's riverside hotspot with far from bawdy attractions such as the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe and Borough Market.
