1. Lambeth Palace

    The Archbishop of Canterbury’s official London residence is a famous riverside landmark. It dates from the 13th century, but it is the red-brick Tudor Gatehouse, dating from 1490, that gives the palace a distinctive appearance.

    • Closed to the public

  3. Savoy Hotel

    London’s first luxury hotel opened in 1889, on the site of the medieval Savoy Palace. Its Chinese lacquered “ascending rooms” were some of the first elevators in Europe. Oscar Wilde objected to the new-fangled built-in plumbing: he wanted to ring for his hot water like a gentleman. Adjoining the hotel is the Art Deco Savoy Theatre.

  4. Millennium Bridge

    This stunning, blade-like suspension bridge links Tate Modern on Bankside with St Paul’s and the City opposite. Unfortunately, this new footbridge suffered from excessive movement when it first opened in 2000. It has since re-opened and is a delightful and apt approach to Tate Modern.

  5. Shakespeare’s Globe

    This modern reconstruction in oak, thatch and 36,000 handmade bricks is near the site of the original Globe Theatre, which burned down in 1613. The centre of the theatre is uncovered, so performances only happen during part of the year, but an interesting exhibition is open all year round, plus there is a café and restaurant with river views .

  6. HMS Belfast

    The last of the big-gun armoured ships, HMS Belfast was built in 1938 and saw active service in World War II and Korea. In 1971 she was saved for the nation as an example of an early 20th-century British warship and opened as a museum. Visitors can tour the bridge, the huge engine rooms, the galley and the messdecks, where you get an idea of what life must have been like on board.

    • Morgan’s Lane, Tooley Street SE1

    • Open Mar–Oct: 10am–6pm daily; Nov–Feb: 10am–5pm daily

    • Admission charge

  7. Tower Bridge

    London’s enduring landmark is a neo-gothic wonder. A masterly piece of civil engineering, the bridge was built in 1894 with steam pumps to raise its two halves. Guided tours include views from the top .

  8. St Katharine’s Dock

    The first and most successful piece of modern Docklands development was this handsome dock beside Tower Bridge. The site suffered severe bomb damage during World War II and was refurbished in the 1980s. The area is surrounded by pleasant apartments, shops and cafés, with further residential and commercial development planned .

  9. The Cutty Sark

    Built in 1869, this is the last of the record-breaking tea-clippers that brought the leaves to thirsty London. Currently closed for refurbishment, it suffered a major setback in 2007 when the ship was damaged by fire.

    • King William Walk SE20

    • Train to Greenwich; DLR Cutty Sark

    • Closed until at least 2010

  10. Thames Flood Barrier

    This huge barrier across the lower reaches of the Thames, just past Greenwich, was built in 1982 to prevent the dangerous combination of wind and tides from flooding the city. The Visitors’ Centre explains the problem, detailing a long history of flooding in London .
