Top ways to experience Jubilee Gardens and nearby attractions

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

    Jubilee Park and Gardens was busy when I came, but I still took away from my experience that the place is a fantastic spot for the community to enjoy (and tourists, of course). It’s central to many must-see destinations in the city, including the London Eye (next door!). It felt safe and relatively clean, especially considering the summer crowds. Families with kids will particularly enjoy the park. Check it out!

    Its good.......however!!!
    Located on the south bank near the London Eye this is a place many will visit, lots of areas to sit an unwind people watching. Numerous stalls with areas for eating selling food and alcohol. Only issue is the lack of public toilets! ONLY 1 toilet block which costs £1 to enter.

    Great views
    A lovely little retreat of the busy life of London. Great to sit and watch everything going on on the river Thames. Also a great place to sit and watch the London eye going round.

I was not happy that there are kids right there and people drinking next to them. This is not very good place to come with kids.

Good place to: have a picnic, play with your pup, people-watch, listen to buskers, enjoy some food and drink, watch the London Eye, etc.

There are some eateries along the embankment (hot dogs, fish and chips, places selling alcohol), and though there's only one public toilet (which costs a pound, yikes), if you walk a little north to the Southbank Centre, there are free toilets inside.

We spent a fair bit of time on the South Bank during our visit, and were staying just around the corner, but pretty much none of it in Jubilee Gardens itself despite passing right by several times.

This was mainly because there seemed no reason to spend time there. There is a playground but it was closed for refurbishment. That being the case, there didn't seem to be anything else actually there.

Awful, my daughter has been on the carousel over the years, with and without our assistance, today the woman attending the Carousel decided to humiliate her by deciding she was just under the required height, put her and her friend at the back of the queue and proceded to tell my wife that she was a bit little, in front of her and then decided to let her on by which stage she was in tears and didnt want anything to do with it, thanks for ruining her first trip in town out of lockdown and last day of her half term

Jubilee Gardens as we see it today is relatively new, being on a site that was a car park from the early 1950's to 1977 when it was landscaped for HM the Queen's Jubilee that year. It has, relatively recently, had a complete make-over and, now that the trees and landscaping is maturing, has become a real asset to the South Bank.

Behind it is the new development around the former Shell Building and at one corner it provides a link to the London Eye, with a statue to the International Brigade and children's play area.

Overshadowed by London eye, this park is nothing but benches, some greenery and skeletal trees. Did not enjoy here.
