- London Eye
- End of the London walk – Lambeth Bridge
Start of our walk in London – Parliament Square and Big Ben
We start our walk in London in the very near, just outside of the station we see Parliament Square, which contains several statues of statesmen and noble individuals. The square is famous place for demonstrations and protests. Next to Parliament Square is located the magnificent Big Ben, one of the most famous attractions and photo stop for all visitors in London. With crowds of people and souvenir kiosks, the best time to enjoy the view to Big Ben is early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey
Next we see Houses of Parliament, on the north bank of river Thames. They are the meeting place of the House of Commons and House of Lords, the two houses that form the Parliament of the United Kingdom.
To continue with the beautiful architecture, we catch a glimpse of Westminster Abbey. The abbey is the main church in the City of Westminster. It is one of the most iconic religious buildings in UK, serving as traditional place for coronation and burial of British monarchs. It is also a wedding venue for England’s royal members.
Further in our walk we can admire the 135 m tall London Eye, located on the South bank of river Thames. It is the best way to see London from a bird view. Another interesting building on the way is MI5. As seen in the movies, this is the United Kingdom’s domestic counter-intelligence and security agency.
End of the London Walk – Lambeth Bridge
For last but not least for our London walk today we see Lambeth Bridge. Not as famous as Westminster bridge, but reveals absolutely amazing views to all of the attractions that we saw – London Eye, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and the river Thames. This is the perfect spot for nice photos.
