South Bank

At the moment the South Bank is home to  a ‘Summer of Fun’ festival – isn’t that a nice proposition? There’s a British seaside theme with stripey beach huts, a giant seagull, funfair and so on.

And… there’s a garden. A Great Day Out-On-Sea is a horticultural tour of the seafront at Southend-on-Sea, from its formal Victorian gardens to the cockling industry at Leigh-on-Sea. The part you can see here is the Victorian park planting bit, with lots of colourful and sub-tropical plants. It somehow looks completely at home in the concrete jungle.
