More culture? No, more coffee shops.

South Bank, home to skateboarding in central London for 40 years, is to be turned into retail units. Part of South Bank, namely The Undercroft, has been hallowed ground to 3 generations of skateboarders.

One skateboarding magazine ex-editor suggested the alternatives should be explored, but the skateboarders did not agree.
