We had a little walk through the Victoria Embankment gardens having got off the tube at Embankment last weekend and wanting to walk through to the Thames. The garden itself is rather quiet with a lot of people opting to walk along the Thames instead...More

Worth visiting if only to see the over the top memorial to Sir Arthur Sullivan. In fact there are a number of interesting sculptures including a very prosperous looking Robert Burns. Very popular with office workers, so most of the seats are taken at lunchtime,...More

The Victorian Embankment Gardens are located on the north side of the river Thames in between Westminster Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge. The garden area is right by the River Thames and were created in 1874.

“The City” is one of London's most historic and
