Only bridge I even seen in central London where you can park (at night), indeed a number of cars park up just to take photos. However, I always think of The Kinks' Waterloo Sunset when crossing even though you cannot see a sunset from here! The view down stream to Tower Bridge and over the city, are some of the best in London. The other side of the bridge faces the Charing Cross railway bridge and quite frankly, are not as good.

I frequently use this bridge and I love it!! As I walk over it, I can reflect on life. Watching the boats moving or the boats which are stationary filled with customers having fun.
Watching the changes on the river and looking at the wonderful sights including Big Ben, Westminster Palace ,London Eye, The Shard, Royal Festival Hall, St. Paul's Cathedral , The Embankment and numerous historical Wharfs makes me love London even more. What a brilliant city and the sights are to die for. We should be proud of this historical city.

Set on a slow bend on the river Thames, with the City of Westminster to the West and the City of London to the east Waterloo bridge rightly enjoys its prestigious status as a romantic and spectacular place to view a panorama of London. Take a map to spot the many famous buildings, from the Palace of Westminster to St Pauls Cathedral and many more skyscrapers. And stand and stare at the river, flowing solemnly beneath you in swirls and rivulets as it was the lifeblood of London from prehistory to recent years. No longer a vital artery, the docks have long moved East but the river is cleaner and looks better than it has done for many years. O yes and there's the song by Ray Davies and the boys....

Waterloo Bridge is the most favorite site I'd like to stay-put on whenever I really need to relax and have a think of my life. From the distance one can see Big Ben, London Eye, Royal Festival Hall, The Shard, St. Paul's Cathedral and The City, and other historical and significant buildings. One will be at peace just standing on the middle of the bridge and watch the ferry go by..,feel the wind on your face....Try to sit down on Somerset House Terrace, have some coffee/tea, and just feel the silence and tranquility which I know is impossible for others but not for me. I am so lucky!!!
