  • Starting from Westimnster, you pass under the London Eye, you go to the Tate Modern and then you get to the Millennial Bridge and Borough Market. A must do!

  • Really love this area. So many places to eat and drink. Lots of nice unusual small shops and stalls. In summer great outdoor dining. In december nice xmas stalls. Great views too. 
  • We love walking along the south bank as it offers a mixture of great views, delicious food stalls, and interesting street performers.
