The South Bank Centre: This sprawling cultural hub on the South Bank of the Thames houses the Royal National Theatre, Royal Festival Hall, and the Hayward Gallery, among others. Over one long weekend day you could take in a riveting theater matinée, a thought-provoking art exhibit, and an evening symphony concert without ever leaving the SBC. Several on-site cafés and restaurants offer convenient dining options as well. Victoria and Albert Museum: The V&A has an outstanding collection of applied and decorative arts and design. Fashionistas will be drawn especially to its seemingly endless textile and costume collections. There is also a significant trove of South and Southeast Asian art, numbering nearly 60,000 pieces. Its furniture collection is also notable.
