Seaside thrills
As part of the Festival of Britain celebrations the area outside the  Southbank Centre along Queen’s Walk  now has tonnes of sand and has been transformed into the South Bank beach, where you can gaze at the 14 artist commissioned beach huts along the 70 metres of urban seaside.

Festival of Britain--if you want a bit of history:

The Festival of Britain was a national exhibition which opened in May 1951.   At that time, shortly after the end of WWII , London was still in ruins and redevelopment was badly needed. The Festival was an attempt to give Britons a feeling of recovery and progress and to promote better-quality design in the rebuilding of British towns and cities.
