A SHORT THAMES SIDE WALK , LONDON.

Afternoon walk

I"ve been visiting London, since my dad took me to see a FA Cup Final in the old Wembley
stadium, 70 years ago. I live in the North of England, and to make travel abroad easier, i stay overnight in an hotel, so as to leave on the first
Eurostar of the day. This means i have an afternoon in London, always something new to see. In the year
2014, i took a bus to London Bridge. From here i could see the new Shard building,then set off to walk on the north
bank of the river Thames,toward the Tower bridge in view.. It was very busy because on this
lovely sunny November day, people were going to the Tower of London, to see the Poppy
display in the Moat. HMS Belfast is moored opposite the Tower and is now a museum.--
I walked under the road of the the Tower bridge to St. Katharine Dock, this is a redevlopment area. -- After having a good look round i left to go to see St. Paul"s Cathedral. finishing a enjoyable afternoon.-----------------THE  SHARD,  LONDON--  Construction started 2009,  completed 2012  310  metres high, tallest in Western  Europe
