the south bank is a wonderful place to walk along the Thames and take photo's of big ben and the houses of parliament and feed the birds if there are any around and not forgetting the London eye

On a sunny day this is the perfect place to sit and relax. I loved watching all the boats go past on the Thames! Situated near to all the west end theatres would definitely recommend!!

Pretty central to any London trip, it is hard to stray far from the river. A fair few bars, cafes and restaurants (though never enough!) and great views and lots of people keep the walk interesting and well-oiled enough, wherever you are going! The Thames...More
