Strolling Along the River Thames in London

A few weeks ago, I took a day trip to London with a few friends. Since we only had a couple of hours, and the weather was absolutely perfect, we decided to take a long stroll along the River Thames and admire the sites.

But first, we enjoyed typical British cuisine: pies and beer at a local pub near Trafalgar Square!




Oh hey, London

It turns out there are many different routes along the River Thames one can take in order to admire the sights of London. We embarked on the Riverside route, which loops under and over some of the capital’s most famous bridges, as well as St. Paul’s Cathedral.

We picked up the walk just on the other side of the London Eye, and continued towards Millennium Bridge and crossed just in front of Saint Paul’s Cathedral.


As I call it, “Harry Potter Bridge”

From there, we continued through the streets and shops and performers until we reached Tower Bridge.

From there, we crossed back over Tower Bridge to the other side. We meandered to the Tower of London, and finally made our way back down the river via the Riverside Walk.




On our way back to France, we stopped in a Tesco’s to stock up on some British and American amenities.


Have you ever enjoyed a London River Thames walk?

  1. I had the opportunity to be in London recently but it was for less than two days. Still a very fun experience and I definitely want to make it back soon. Your pictures look great!

Let me know what you think!
