Trains were arriving with nowhere to go and general chaos trying to work out which train was going where.
Finally jumped on a train to Blackfriars and as I wasn't going to make it to the Natural History Museum in time, took a walk along the length of Victoria Embankment from Blackfriars to Westminister Bridge - avoiding sightseeing tourists and commuting joggers.
|High Tide Victoria Embankment|
A very high tide. I can see why the Thames Barrier is used so often. It wouldn't take much to breach the banks.
|Memorial to Sir Joseph Bazalgette|
There several memorials along the way, which most tourists probably miss, while busily photographing themselves and others in front of the more familiar tourist sights and despite the traffic fumes it's a pleasant walk along side the river.
|Me and the London Eye|
Do something different. Take the opportunity to walk overground for all or part of your journey, rather than disappear underground.
Will leave the Natural History Museum (and the London Eye) for another day.
