Sunny Southbank

We just returned from a long weekend in London.  Steve and I went to do some shopping for our trousseaux and I took some photos around the Southbank, where we were staying.  I adore this part of London.  The Thames was at our feet and the vibe is fantastic.  There is the Southbank Centre – the largest single-run arts centre in the world, the Globe Theatre, the Tate Modern museum, National Film Theatre (currently running a Paul Newman season – we saw The Sting) and lots of restaurants and cool shops.

I also love the architecture and got a chance to take some photos on our way to and from our hotel.

Here’s one from Steve

Friday 23rd April is Shakespeare’s birthday and spectators enjoyed the late afternoon sunshine and some of the great wordslinger’s scenes being declaimed in this amphitheatre.

Tower Bridge

I always like to check out the graffiti outside the National Film Theatre where the skaters hang out . . . .

After the film, we were serenaded by a saxophone player beneath Jubilee Bridge.
