The area
Address
Neighborhood: Southbank
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 activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
How to get there

Joep Beving, wonderful Pianist
Nov 2021
Although they are showing as temporarily closed at the date of writing this review 17 November 2021 so you may wish to visit their website as they are actually open.
We had absolutely no idea where the entrance to this place is and whilst looking for the Joep Beving concert, we found we were in the queue for Paul McCartney!

Our tickets only said Queen Elizabeth Hall, but then you see Southbank Centre and a number of difference theatre/concert venues.

Once we had left the Paul McCartney queue we headed up a flight of outdoor stairs and kind of meandered until we saw the Southbank Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Rooms, still unsure where we were going but the staff on the doors were helpful and we finally found our seats.

Jazz gig here good, but its a pity the bar was bereft of good beer!
Dec 2019
Sound was just great, very comfy relaxed venue

The bar was very strange as they only sold lager and pale ales - no British bitter like Fullers London Pride or Youngs or Greene King Abbot .... and this is in the capital London at the South Bank?! Maybe they need a bar manager who knows about beer ....

One of the bar staff said that if I went outside and over to the Royal Festival Hall they sold Bass there, so I did that and brought back a pint in a plastic glass! Not great, but better than nothing .....

What Did They Say?
Dec 2019
We saw the fabulous and hilarious Fascinating Aida here but their performance was all but spoiled by losing so many of the lyrics due to the woeful sound system.
I am sure with the financial resources of the South Bank Centre and the undoubted skills of their technicians they could and should come up with a better result than our muffled experience.

Excellent London Concert Venue
Dec 2019
Some people find The South Bank Centre confusing but as you approach the complex the QEH is up high on your right and the Festival hall on your left. There are also several levels where you will find restaurants and bars tucked away.
We went to see the fabulous Fascinating Aida. The seating has been improved with half backed black leather chairs and good clear vision to the stage. There are 2 good bars for a pre show drink or snack and excellent toilet facilities. A real pleasure to visit this venue.

The excellent Roo Panes at QEH, Southbank
Dec 2019
Our first visit to QEH was for a sell-out concert by the excellent Roo Panes.

The venue is superb with plenty of leg room and comfortably seating. Furthermore the elevation of the rows ensured that your view of the stage was not obstructed by those sitting in front of you.

Very enjoyable evening's entertainment!

Good first visit
Aug 2019 • Family
Visited this venue for the first time today, to see the excellent ‘Tales of the Turntable’ by the Zoonation dance group, with my 12 and 14 year olds. It’s only on for a short time, but catch it if you can - the young cast are hugely talented and energetic and it’s good fun!

The Hall is big and the seats seem all well raked. We had middle row seats in Row K, in the front section of the Stalls, which felt nice and close to the stage, but not too close, as I prefer a bit of distance! Therefore these were ideal for us.

One very odd thing about the seating is that there are no gaps under the seats to put anything at all! We only had small bags with us and it was fine, as being in the centre of the row we didn’t need to stand up for others to pass, but in the winter if you had coats and so on there would be no room at all, but perhaps there is a cloakroom. If you were at a show where people stand, like an actual gig, I wonder if it would be easy to do that with belongings not being able to be tucked away.

It was an extremely loud show and the acoustics seemed spot on, as was the imaginative lighting.

The staff were really great, and radiated welcome and positivity! It was nice to see them all dancing along where they were variously standing to the Bob Marley music being played before the show!

We would attend an event here again.
