I walked along Victoria Embankment as an alternative to the Strand, for my journey from the Aldwych to Embankment Station as, though cloudy, it was a pleasant autumn day. A little while ago, I visited the tomb of the engineer Sir Joseph Bazelgette in Wimbledon, so it was particular enjoyable to walk along part of the embankment which he designed and which was built in 1862. There are two aspects to the Embankment and the position of some of the gates in Victoria Embankment Gardens enables you to enjoy both. One is the riverfront with its views across to the South Bank, albeit the road and cycle paths reduces its impact, but it is worth walking along, not least to explore Cleopatra's Needle and the War Memorial from the people of Belgium. Then back to the Gardens which are well maintained and have many seats which are popular with people particularly at lunchtime. At the back of the Gardens rise the facades of buildings such as the Savoy Hotel and the Institute of Electrical Engineers. Within the gardens are several statues and memorials, one of the best being that to Arthur Sullivan and one of the most surprising finds being that to the Imperial Camel Corps - how many people know that such a unit actually existed? Then on to the large statue of the Scottish poet Robert Burns and to the Water Gate which marks the position of the north bank of the River Thames before Victoria Embankment - and was originally the gateway from the river to York House, being commissioned by the Duke of Buckingham in 1626.

Great place to have a walk and see so many sights of London, memorials, boats, spotted new Scotland yard this time, then turned off up toward Trafalgar Square for a pint.

Victoria Embankment is a lovely area for a walk especially on a nice day. During our walk we came across New Scotland Yard with its famous revolving sign. I always wondered what part of London it was in, well I found it by accident. It was a nice surprise.

Was lovely to just be able to stroll along the Embankment. It wasn't terribly busy when we were walking along. We were staying in Fleet Street so it was a short walk to get down to the Embankment.
