August 2013 - A walk across the Millennium Bridge on our way across London on our return from our Scottish holiday.
The entrance steps to St Paul's Cathedral.
Our first glimpse of the dome.
A rare sight, one of the old routemaster buses. Now only used on two heritage routes.
This is a memorial to the firefighters who served London during the blitz.
Looking back at St Paul’s from the walkway to the Millennium bridge.
The view east from the Millennium bridge including Southwark Bridge, Tower bridge in the distance and the Shard. The Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe, standing 1016 feet tall.

From the southern end of the bridge, the Globe Theatre, The Shard and the House by the Thames.
From the south bank, St Paul's Cathedral and the Millennium bridge.
This three story house is the “House by the Thames” which features in the book by Gillian Tindall. The current house was built in 1710. The book tells the story of the current house and the previous houses to stand on the site and the lives of those who lived there.
The plaque of the wall of the House by the Thames.
The Globe Theatre. This is a reconstruction opened in 1997. The original Globe Theatre stood a few hundred yards away from this site.
Stamford Street. Bikes for hire, the IMax cinema and the Millennium wheel on the skyline.
