  • A gift from an Egyptian ruler and nearly 3500 years old this ancient obelisk a sentinel presence on the Thames. Indifferent to the passage of time and an ironic counterpoint to the Shell Mex House clock ( London's largest) marking the passage of time across the road. Certainly worth a peek.
  • Given to England after Nelson's victories, but not erected until 1877. At least 3,500 years old. Reputation as place for ghost sightings and as a place to take one's life. Weird vibe.
  • A lovely place, but I do feel for Sadie and Carter Kane.
  • Lovely place! I would prefer if when the shop is closed, lights could be used to make the shop look less like a toilet.
  • Great part of the landscape of the River Thames. I do many walks, or rather as many as I can down the River Thames Path. This is a very significant part of what makes the character and history of the River Thames so interesting. If you are walking along the Embankment you cannot miss it and for me always is a lovely sight.
