After borough market, we walked towards millineum bridge crossing the thames connecting tate modern museum & St. Paul’s Cathedral on 29.4.2017. ^^
we exited from the green market to cathedral road.
on the way, we passed by the ship golden hinde II.
The ship is a registered wedding venue and is available for private and corporate hire.
we walked alongside the thames past southwark bridge & shakespeare’s globe theatre.
the shard was behind us, standing out in the background
there were many tourists here, as there were at borough market.
weather was good, temperature around 16degC. it was a very nice atmosphere walking along the thames.
we passed by shakespeare’s globe.
there are £5 tickets if you are happy to stand for 3hrs. most people are (above photo).
for today, tickets were sold out, but there is a mechanism where people can return the ticket, & there was a queue outside to buy the returned tickets at full price no discounts.
my friend was second in queue. ahead of him was a young couple. there was one ticket available first so my friend got the ticket.
the 2 of us who were not staying to watch left after he got his ticket.
river thames is quite a busy place.
looking back on millenium bridge in the direction of london bridge – tower bridge is in the distant & the shard stands out in the background.
“the shard is a is a 95-storey skyscraper in Southwark, London. Standing 309.7 metres (1,016 ft) high, the Shard is the tallest building in the United Kingdom…& the second-tallest free-standing structure in the United Kingdom, after the concrete tower at the Emley Moor transmitting station.”
another view of the thames from the millenium bridge.
looking across the thames to st paul’s cathedral.
there was a constant stream of people crossing millenium bridge in both directions.
looking back at tate modern.
& st paul’s cathedral.
the 2 of us mingled around to take some photos.
nice views from the front.
after that we walked to st paul’s station & took the tube back to king’s cross st pancras.
