Having eaten at nearby Oxo tower restaurant, we decided to take the underground from Blackfriars, thus having to cross the Blackfriars Bridge. We found it hilarious how empty everything was, as our pictures show, out of some zombie movie, with no cars around, but just...More

The ends of the bridge look like pulpits with their curbed, circular shapes. That's the wink-wink to the "Friars" part of Black Friars. It is visually so pleasing; the newer white bowstring arch truss-bridge sails up into the sky while the remnant of the older...More

As with all London bridges, the views over the Thames are spectacular. This bridge connects Ludgate Hill and the Embankment with Southwark and the South Bank. It’s not as exciting as Tower Bridge or the Millennium Bridge but it does the job. The eastwards views...More

Restaurant suggestion near Blackfriars or Waterloo Bridge (8 Replies)
Hello - we are staying near the Blackfriars Bridge, I am wondering if anyone has a good restaurant suggestion in the area for our first day? Moderatly priced around £20 per person. We have a cruise from the Embankment Pier at 18:00 so will be in that area too which is why I also mention Waterloo Bridge. Thank you!

So I have several questions: 1. Can anyone recommend any nice cocktail bars (especially if you've been to them at new year)? 2....More
