One of many bridges that now connect between the north and south banks of the Thames. It is a pleasant walk with some interesting views.

One of the best places in London to see Tahmes river, Big Ben, Westminster, London eye and Shard in one place. One of the most picturesque locations in London and located very close to the Waterloo rail station and Westminster tube station.
