The South Bank rejuvenation began back in 2000 with the transformation of the riverside’s old power station into one of the world’s most iconic modern galleries. There are almost 17 million visitors to London every year and this vibrant area is now a destination in its own right. I am thrilled that in 12 months’ time Hilton London Bankside will open to guests.”
Simon Vincent, EVP and president, EMEA, Hilton Worldwide said, “London’s Southbank has been thesubject of incredible regeneration over the past 15 years and it has a unique identity which attracts residents, tourists and business guests alike. Hilton London Bankside will be a striking addition to our burgeoning London portfolio of more than 30 trading hotels – its quality and scale further demonstrate our signature brand’s dominance in some of London’s best locations.”
