From childhood, I had a penchant for this place, as there are too many attractions along the banks of this river.
And for the first time, I would say that my imagination matched with reality, which rarely happens.
We just passed through the attractions, because we would be using the London Pass to enter these places, next week. Here are some interesting shots that I took along...
One of the 5 Imperial museums is an army ship, HMS Belfast. This is permanently docked on the Thames.
This is a bronze fun size pirate ship, at Hay's Galleria, which is a tourist-targeted shopping center with traditional nick-nacks and coffee bars.
On the bridge, the traffic was heavy. Unlike Kuala Lumpur, the pavements are large, in fact, the tracks for the vehicles are narrower. This helps the tourists to spend time on the bridge conveniently.
Tower of London looks so romantic from the opposite bank. There are many gates to this tower, and one of the gates was named as Traitor Gate, which had direct access to the river in the past. I guess the history has not been kind. I will share more details, when we get to see this place next week.
By then, the weather had started to change, because of the chill wind. After a tea break, we headed for Westminster, to see the Big Ben and the Parliamentary house. I will continue on this in my next post. Stay tuned:)
