A Day By the River

Morning

Start at Waterloo with breakfast and a self-guided tour of the Marriott Hotel, based in the splendid former headquarters of the Greater London Council. Cross Westminster Bridge to visit Westminster Abbey and nearby St Margaret’s Church.

Continue along Abingdon Street to Lambeth Bridge and re-cross the river. Have a coffee at the delightful little café at Lambeth Pier, passing Lambeth Palace on your way. Walk along the Albert Embankment for a stunning view of the Houses of Parliament across the river.

For lunch, you might like to try the Japanese restaurant YO! Sushi or the innovative fish! . Both are in Belvedere Road, behind the London Eye.

Afternoon

Walk along the embankment to the Southbank Centre, browsing the second-hand bookstalls outside the BFI Southbank. Continue past the craft shops of Gabriel’s Wharf to the Oxo Tower’s designer galleries just beyond and take the lift to the tower’s viewing platform for a great view of the city.

Afterwards, head along the embankment to Tate Modern – a wonderful place to spend the rest of the afternoon. Have a drink with more views in the Espresso Bar: Level 4. Further downriver, the Anchor pub is a good place to relax and have dinner.
