Where to find a cheap place to eat lunch around the London Eye on London’s South Bank. These places are also close to the London Aquarium and the London Dungeon.
There are plenty of restaurant chains in the Southbank centre. For something a bit more affordable, try a street food market or some of the small restaurants and food stalls on Lower Marsh behind Waterloo train station.
For something even cheaper you can grab a £3–£4 meal deal from a supermarket. There’s a Sainsbury’s Local, Tesco Express and M&S Simply Food next to each other on Waterloo Rd, just outside Waterloo train/tube station.
