LX5 - Sweet Thames Flow Softly

Hi there,

One of the things that we did when I was back in the UK in June was to visit London for the day and take in a sometimes soggy boat-trip down the river to Greenwich and back. Here's a few pictures from that day; I thought I'd post them in the lead-up to the forth-coming Olympic Games before London-fatigue sets in

I hope that you are able to recognise some of the landmarks along the way, new as well as old!

GLA Offices, The Shard of Glass and HMS Belfast

The Shard of Glass and Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge, with a tour boat speeding by and an old masted boat waiting for the bridge to open

..and open she does

Rotherhide towards Shadwell Panorama (Letterbox Crop)

Two Views of the Prospect of Whitby pub, Wapping

Back again: funny how the spire appears with the changed perspective due to a change in tide and the boats position on the river.

Sailing past Canary Wharf

Some House-backs at Wapping

Canary Wharf over Rotherhide

Towards the City of London, over Shadwell Basin

The Captain Kidd and the River Police Station at Wapping

The Tower

Church of St Magnus the Martyr, London Bridge

St Pauls Cathedral and Blackfriars Bridge

Back to Westminster Pier, 'Big Ben' and Boadica

Thanks for looking,
