This rather plain riverside garden was laid out in 1977 to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
Sculptures in the gardens include a memorial to the International Brigade who fought in the Spanish Civil War from 1936-39.
In the summer the Jubilee Gardens are a venue for concerts and festivals and also provide a popular picnic spot for workers from nearby offices.
A huge new addition to the riverfront here is the London Eye that now stands beside the gardens. Visitors to the Jubilee Gardens can admire the fantastic structure, cantilevered out over the river, and watch as it slowly revolves. Passengers get on and off whilst the Eye is in motion. Opened in 2000, the observation wheel is one of London’s most popular attractions.
Jubilee Gardens may disappear if the plans to redevelop the South Bank are carried out.
