London is such a walkable city. In the Summer. When it isn’t raining. Wasting a beautiful evening sunset in London is a sin, so we decided a walk over the Thames via the Millennium Bridge was in order. There are so many sights and sounds to enjoy on the south side of the river…
We walked past The Globe and Tate Modern, past the restaurants and bars towards Tower Bridge and Shad Thames.
We walked past HMS Belfast and City Hall to the winding walkways of Shad Thames. Does this remind you of any movie from back in the day? Think about it and I’ll clue you in later. Think Dickensian.
View of the Tower of London…And the most stunning view of all…the night time view from the south side of the bridge to St. Paul’s Cathedral. It just takes your breath away.
Things to know
For additional walks in London, consider signing up with the famed London Walks. There is no need to book ahead, just show up prepared for the weather (and have £9 p/p ready). There are slight discounts for students and the “Super Adults.”
There are a stunning number of highly qualified London Guides available for small group and personal tours. I can personally recommend two guides: Peter Berthoud, offers a selection of tours including “Hidden Mayfair” and “The Seven Noses of Soho.” Check his website for information and booking.
The debonair Russell Nash, provides tours throughout London and beyond, including “Royal London”,”The Icons of St. James” and “The Men Who Made Menswear.” Check his website for booking information. Both of these gentlemen are excellent guides and provide an entertaining and informative day out.
