A week after returning from my father’s 80th birthday celebration, the weather was again pretty nice, allowing me to return to the Thames in central London and complete a missing section of the Thames Path – from Westminster to Tower Bridge. Also today there was a military flypast for the Queen so I positioned myself on Westminster bridge and awaited the planes approaching the Mall. However a camera malfunction meant I only got a few poor shots and since they don’t really concern the river, I have omitted them.
This walk takes in a fair section of the South Bank, arcing away from Westminster and heading round a bend in the river, along past Tate Modern, St Pauls, a small beach (!) and finally past the Golden Hind, HMS Belfast and on to the new building of the Shard and City Hall which are south west of Tower Bridge.
