Located within the Southbank Centre, right in the heart of London's cultural quarter, Skylon South Bank is the perfect place for a pre-theatre meal. 

Just a hop and a skip to the National Theatre or the Old Vic, and with sophisticated decor and breathtaking views. 

Skylon's pre-theatre menu includes mains such as fennel apple risotto, sea bream with smoked courgettes or flat iron steak. 

Check out the full menu and book by clicking on the left. 

Discover Skylon

Skylon takes its name from the iconic structure that was built on the South Bank for the 1951 Festival of Britain.

Skylon’s design echoes the style of the Royal Festival Hall during the same period with some contemporary touches, such as the uniquely designed chandeliers and surfaces of bronze, walnut and slate.

In spite of its popularity with the public, the cost of dismantling and re-erecting the Skylon in 1951 was deemed too much for a government. Speculation as to the Skylon’s fate included theories that it was dumped into the Thames, buried under Jubilee Gardens, made into souvenirs or sold as scrap.
