Waterloo Sunset

London Eye and the Houses of Parliament silhouetted against the sunset

No matter how many times I go there Waterloo Bridge always amazes me with its views. This was the early sunset on Sunday afternoon.

If you’re only in London for a few hours I’d recommend visiting just this bridge because you can see so many sights all in one go, including but not limited to, St Paul’s Cathedral, the National Theatre, the Oxo Tower and distant views of Canary Wharf.

And obviously, it’s difficult to visit any part of London without seeing a pigeon or four.

    I love Waterloo Bridge – spent a lot of time in that part of town when I was at university (on the strand) – miss it! Beautiful photo 🙂

      Thank you. Waterloo Bridge is lovely isn’t it? And the view always looks good, whatever the time of day/year. There’s a nice branch of Caffe Nero at the northern end of it too :).

    Oh yes, spent lots of time in that particular Caffe Nero (there are two, flanking King’s College – that’s why it was my perfect uni ;)) It’s funny, I think of that one a lot though, when I feel like I never have alone time anymore (woe-is-me indeed) I remember how I used to be able to go to that cafe and sit ON MY OWN for an hour or so, with a book..

      Of course there are two. I know them both. Ah, fond memories of student life – I have a lot of them too :). One day we should do a bit group tweet-up and do it in that Caffe Nero!
