Southbank Centre Shop, SE1

The Southbank Centre Shop is commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain at the moment. And, my, aren't they doing it well?
The shop is packed full of creative products using the iconic imagery and 50s style while bringing this event held to help Britain to recover after the second world war right up to the modern day.
The Southbank Centre had even created a English seaside feel on the Thames this weekend - even with a proper sandy beach to play in!
The beach-huts have been taken on by artists and independent shops, they had even brought the Southbank's shop out here for Tokens of Affection to be brought by 'holiday makers'.
