London Bridges WalkApparently it's quite a thing to do, so I did it. There is an amazing tongue-in-cheek write up on the walk (but not really pictures, which is why I have this post) at this location: London Bridges Walk
It says it takes 2 and 1/2 hours. Don't you believe it. Count on 3 and 1/2. It's also around 5 miles in distance.
This particular post is not meant to be your guide to following the path, the attached link is that guide. This is intended to show you what you're going to see and get you to do it yourself.
The Arrival - Westminster BridgeTook the underground to Westminster Tube Station and it lets you out right at the start. You follow it south across toward the London Eye, and then turn around for more views.
Golden Jubilee BridgesI trundled along the south bank a bit until the next bridge, a combined group of train and walking bridges. Take the farthest one from you as you just saw everything on the close side.
Waterloo BridgeAgain, you want to choose the walkway on the far side and take pictures of the old city of London and various things that are visible from here now.
Millennium BridgeSkip the Blackfriars train bridge, go to the Millennium Bridge, and cross there, but then, halfway across, turn around for some amazing things.
Southwark BridgeNow we head back south to Southwark, where you can see the Shard (which seems an unnecessary building to me) and some older riverside areas.
London BridgeNo, not falling down, but the oldest point of crossing (2,000 years and counting) of the Thames. Various incarnations, but always in the same place.
Tower BridgeI think it was a given that this bridge was going to be in the walk, and since it's a LONG ways from the next bridge down the Thames, this is a natural ending point to their little walk.
SummaryThis was a really cool walk and brings you by many things you normally wouldn't go near. It's long and can be draining on you, so if you need to, take frequent stops. Don't forget to hydrate (and double that if you're drinking).
I enjoyed this walk. It was worth the time and effort spent, and talk about cost friendly!
