Join poet Chris McCabe as he explores London s South Bank in the latest title in the Real series. Here is the area as you won t find it in guidebooks: the oozy docklands history, its legacy of institutions and their buildings, its attraction for great writers and artists, the continuing redevelopment and its effects on local people. On the South Bank is to be found Tate Modern, the brutalist National Theatre, the Tudor brick of Lambeth Palace, the opaque MI6 headquarters, the fairground London Eye, along with modern estates, Victorian back streets and more ancient riverside buildings.
