an iconic view from the bridge as you walk from the south side of the river to Westminster and big Ben. Not a bad bridge, don't get me wrong, but veeeeery busy almost any time during the say and particularly on holidays where there will be several hundred people pushing to get across the bridge at the same time, bumping into an equal number who, with cameras in hand are desperately trying to get a photo of their loved one without getting knocked to the ground and trampled into the paving stones. The other side of the bridge presents similar challenges for the keen walker seeking to traverse the bridge on the 'big ben' side as a similar number of people, almost symmetrically, trying to get a photo of the houses of parliament without getting knocked to the ground...you get the picture...(pardon the pun).

Take a deep breath and just go for it!!!!!!

Great views day and night. Definitely worth a walk to see the sites from the bridge. Make sure you have your camera ready.

This has some excellent photo opportunities but this makes it very busy. Don't try and walk along the parapet side of the pavement if you want to get anywhere fast!

Walking across the bridge gives you some great views and opportunity to take some lovely photographs- it can be a bit windy and cold especially during winters.
