Waterloo to Blackfriars - a Gentle Stroll

by Jeannette Briggs

Waterloo to Blackfriars - another gentle walk along the Thames

From Waterloo Bridge you can continue your walk along the north bank of the Thames towards Blackfriars Bridge, in order to admire the many and varied buildings set back from the Thames.
