It’s fun to walk along the Thames, stopping to look at the boats and the collection of buildings (some of them very strange shapes) across the water. Be sure to stop at Cleopatra’s needle, a stone obelisk from Egypt that was given to the queen....More

A nice area to walk along the Thames, some good views and generally not as busy as the South Bank, also a good place to pick up a river cruise. Tree lined so shaded from the sun if a hot day.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a

start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

Yes the way the gardens are landscaped by the bridge allows you to sit on wooden benches by the grass & "Love" steel sculpture. Down the other end is a small park area with more sturdy benches in it.
