Thames River Trip

Totally unplanned trip on the Thames in London yesterday. I was going to do something else but it was such a beautiful day and the prospect of sitting on a boat in the sun on the Thames was too good to miss. So this is almost a wordless post!!



The stunning Battle of Britain Memorial by Westminster Bridge. So clever and effective to model it on a ‘Scramble’



Canary Wharf



The Cutty Sark at Greenwich



The London Eye



The wonderful replica of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre



The Shard – I adore this building



The Tower of London



The Trinity Hospital Almshouses – beautiful building



Quantum Cloud Sculpture by Anthony Gormley. Can you see the shape of a man inside it?



The Emirates Air Line Cable Cars over the Thames



The O2 Centre



Half a boat – don’t ask, I have no idea why anybody would want to slice a boat in half!



The Thames Barrier

Fantastic trip and thanks very much to my dear friends Graham and Jan who made it possible and always spoil me when I come up to London and who also let me hug their cats (lots!).

  1. Lovely to see some of the area where I used to live. I've not been back in years, we lived in Rotherhithe, Surrey Docks before they changed it to the yuppy name Surrey Quays.
    I loved to go to Greenwich market and around the Cutty Sark….
    Good memories thank you 🙂

  2. I might be biased, but London is a wonderful city. Thank you for this lovely photo-blog. I love the Antony Gormley and I recommend that everyone should at some point in their lives spend a quiet five minutes at the Battle of Britain Memorial near Westminster Bridge.
