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.
and a high tide
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.
