In my quest to find something to do at night in London, I found this walk on the Thames Path on the South Bank: a walk from Southwark to Tower Bridge.
View from the South Bank: that thin line of light across the river is the Millenium Bridge (I know, absolutely unimpressive for its name) and on the left, north of the river, is St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Southwark Bridge. (We actually thought this was the London Bridge when we were there…I only realize it’s not when I looked it up!)
These are apparently some top goverment offices of some form. I forgot what they’re called, but I call that building on the left the Egg, and that small pretend-stand-alone-stone in its foreground the Little Egg.
This is an over-exposed Tower Bridge. Contrary to popular misconceptions, this is not the London Bridge. As a matter of fact, the London Bridge looks so lame and insignificant that we walked by it and totally disregarded it!
A great walk to take in the sights, great views along the way, passing by places such as Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the Tate Modern, and clusters of nice pubs and restaurant.
Right, now I need to find another night activity…
