  • This is a great place for restaurants, cafes, and shops, not to mention people watch. There is always something going on here. 
  • A must-see walk from Parliament to the Tower of London. The view of London from the opposite bank of the Thames is unforgettable. Discover surprising corners by almost hidden streets. Wear comfortable shoes!
