  • One of the more unusual monuments amongst many in London. Located on the banks of the Thames it's worth taking a walk to see the needle. Amazing piece of history flanked by two sphinxes. Free and acce...  more »
  • Its really great mixture of cultures and history in Embankment area.. Egyptian statue with a great ancient history beside the Thames River 
  • Would never expect to see such an ancient historic artifact in the middle of the bustling city, instead of the British Museum. Make sure to read about its history.

  • 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.
