Misty Walk Along the Thames

This week I’m going to take you along the Thames from Blackfriars Bridge to Vauxhall Bridge on a misty January day.

Looking back towards Blackfriars and the City of London beyond

A quiet early morning walk but there were plenty of seagulls to keep me company

Past the Oxo Tower to reach Gabriel’s Wharf and the London TV centre

Reached the Southbank Centre just in time – the heavens opened and I grabbed a cuppa until the rain stopped

Under the Golden Jubilee Bridges

A little further to get to the London Eye and there’s even a hint of sun a this point

Under Westminster Bridge for a good view of Big Ben, then continue along the river to enjoy a good view of the Palace of Westminster

The next bridge is Lambeth Bridge

Well past Lambeth Bridge now and the Palace of Westminster is still in view

At this point I had run out of time and had to get to work!  I crossed the Vauxhall Bridge and turned right, back towards the centre of town and past Tate Britain.

A final photo – a hazy view of the Shard

Then camera away and off I dashed.
