The Southbank Centre is situated on the banks of the River Thames and is made up of five different venues: the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, Hayward Gallery and the Saison Poetry Library. With resident orchestras, the centre has a packed events diary of classical and contemporary music and dance throughout the year. In addition, the summer months see some of the activities move outside onto the South Bank, such as the E4 Udderbelly, which displays anything from music shows to comedy events and a circus. Away from music, the Southbank Centre also incorporates the Hayward Gallery into its cultural mix, which displays contemporary art exhibitions and the building itself provides a brilliant example of 1960s architecture. Also in the area along the South Bank are the popular London Eye, Shakespeare's Globe and the Tate Modern.
