 London Walks Tower of London to St Paul's By The Thames

English

More than enough history for anyone on a short riverside walk.

We start at Tower Hill Underground station, on the Circle and District lines and the DLR (Docklands Light Railway). Tower Hill is also close to Fenchurch Street mainline station - Zone 1. Just outside the station is a place with a huge sundial and wonderful views of the Tower of London and the buildings old and new alongside the River Thames.

Crossing under the road we approach the Tower, then walk left and cross Tower Bridge. Check the Tower Bridge website for details of the exhibition and opening times. This website also tells you when the bridge will lift to allow ships into the Pool of London, so you can time your walk and watch the bascules opening.

Our walk continues along the south bank past HMS Belfast - a 2nd World War gunship now open as a museum. We then pass through Hays Galleria converted from an old wharf and pass the London Dungeon and the Britain at War Experience. Mediaeval Horror in the Capital! Great for kids, but very busy so book ahead if you want to be horrified.

We then pass by Southwark Cathedral and the Golden Hinde in St Mary Overie dock. Another horror is the Clink, one of London's oldest prisons and open to visitors. Finally we pass Shakespeare's Globe, a must-see both as a tour but also because you will never see authentic Shakespeare anywhere else - buy a groundling ticket if you can stand throughout a performance, and become part of the action. We cross the river by the Tate Modern - an art gallery converted from the old Bankside Power Station - using the Millennium Bridge. Wobbly it was when it was opened, but now sadly stable. Still, it has great views of the River Thames.

Just at the end of the bridge is the fabulous Salvation Army International Headquarters - check out the restaurant and cafe in the lower ground level for some good value snacks in an environment that could not be further from a soup kitchen.

Our walk ends by St Paul's Cathedral. St Paul's is on the Central Line.
