food to your hearts content. I LOVE the

walk to the south bank and go into the royal
festival hall, in the front (towards the Thames) they serve coffees and
drinks. Get a drink and sit outside looking out at the river Thames and watch the
world go by. Sometimes the festival hall has wonderful markets around it, you
might enjoy spending time there. If you
reverse this itinerary and being your walk at London Bridge, have a glass of
wine at the festival hall, towards the back is the bar and often they have
free classical events on the stage at the back (good to be there in the evening too).
the London eye. You will come to a skate park. Some of the graffiti are great! If
you like that kind of thing.
is essential. There are a number of
terrace bars and eateries around.
Under the first bridge is a second hand book market and opposite is the BFI
(British Film Institute – https://whatson.bfi.org.uk/Online/,
I suggest early booking if you wish to do this), they have some good films on
show there if you wish to spent time watching something unusual. In the front
is a really nice café that you can sit out on sun loungers overlooking the book
market and all the people wandering by. Also really good fast food. If you wish to come here in the evening, towards the back there’s a really nice cocktail bar and a bit more pricey restaurant.
this is a quaint little square with some artists studios, creperies, pubs, restaurants….
If you have time, right next to Gabriel’s Warf is the ITV TV studios and there
might be opportunities for you take part in a TV firming (off-coures depending
if they are filming). Walk back on
yourself on “Upper Ground” (the road behind Gabriel’s Warf), if there’s a queue
outside, you might be in for a chance to join them for a filming.
if you have time Bernie Spain Gardens (right hand side), this is a perfect
picnic spot for a short little stopover. Alternatively have a little walk on
one of the pier reaching into the River Thames (also a very romantic spot
especially at dusk).
nice restaurant(but a bit pricy, you MUST make a booking) with outstanding views, make reservations at (http://www.oxotower.co.uk/who/oxo-tower-restaurant-bar-brasserie/). The Brasserie is worth a visit too.
further along the waterfront where you can spent the whole day, again a venue
with cafes and also a great spot to use the facilities. Be sure to make your way to the top floor restaurant, the view over the river and St. Paul s cathedral is worth the detour.You can cross the Millennium Bridge foot bridge to reach St. Pauls Cathedral.
), if you have time for a show, pop in, it’s a great experience.
Clink Prison Museum, turn right onto Stoney street instead of continuing with the queens walk. This will bring you right to
Borough Market.This is where you will have hopefully worked up a appetite to try some of the best market and gourmet street food London has to offer. Grab your favourite food and be sure to sit in the gardens of Southwark Cathedral, its stunning.
Now I know this is a brief guide, and I can probably write a book of everything this stretch of London has to offer however hopefully this give you some ideas what you could to do. Enjoy the walk – its my favourite in London.
