Day 1 – City Hall & HMS Belfast, London

April 2015

Once you’ve crossed the Tower Bridge, you’ll reach City Hall – quite a uniquely curved designed building. Walking further away from City Hall, you’ll reach HMS Belfast moored off the Thames river bank. Pay an entrance fee and you’ll be able to explore the ship.

Day 1 – St Katharine Docks, London

April 2015

Once you are close to the foot of the Tower Bridge, don’t go up and walk across the bridge just yet. Walk straight ahead and you’ll reach St Katharine Docks in about 50m. What a surprise to see one of London’s secret. A secluded marina right in the middle of London. Here you’ll see small boats, expensive boats, etc berth just next to commercial buildings.

Day 1 – Tower Bridge, London

April 2015

Once you’re at the Tower of London by the river bank, the majestic London Bridge built in 1894 is almost besides you (don’t confuse Tower Bridge with London Bridge). At this point, it’s just fantastic to sit down and take in the views of the Tower Bridge and see people & boat goes by.

The Tower Bridge is open to visitors and hold exhibitions. The walkways between the tower have glass panels and as you walk across, you’ll able to see what’s going on underneath.
