London Day 4: South Bank Stroll

After the visit to the Florence Nightingale Museum, we decided to take a leisure walk along South Bank.


We started the walk from the South Bank lion statue on the southside of Westmintser Bridge. It was a windy day as you can see.


View of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament as the backdrop of Westminster Bridge over the River Thames.


There were street performers along the South Bank; painted artists, dancers, bubble artist, etc.


There is a Merry-go-round along South Bank too.


We walked past several bridges crossing River Thames. The above is Hungerford Bridge. It’s made of 3 bridges; a steel truss railway bridge (also known as Charing Cross Bridge); flanked by two pedestrian bridges. The triplet bridges are also known as the Golden Jubilee Bridges.


We saw an art sculpture which resembled a tree along the walk.


Ornamented lamp posts along South Bank.

Badge of the London Chatham and Dover Railway from the first Blackfriar’s Railway Bridge.


Blackfriar’s Bridge is now an eco friendly bridge as it has been renovated to be powered by solar panels.


Tate Modern houses the United Kingdom’s national collection of International Modern and Contemporary Art. I remembered Ben told me that the building was used to be a power plant. We did not have time to visit this massive art gallery.


The Millennium Bridge, also known as the London Millennium Footbridge or nicknamed as the Wobbly Bridge because it swayed when first opened.
