What better way to kick off the weekend than with brunch on the South Bank? Book tickets for an early show and enjoy bottomless prosecco and cocktails pre-theatre, or shake off the working week with a relaxed brunch feast complete with healthy juices, great coffee or, if you need to turbo-charge the weekend, a 'breakfast negroni' always goes down a treat.
Here's a look at some of South Bank's favourite places to book for brunch.
SATURDAY BRUNCH PARTY AT LIMIN'
The always grooving Limin' beach at Gabriel's Wharf has a new Saturday brunch offering.
