An Iconic Night in London

One of the things you must do when in London is cross the Thames River at night. Even if it’s freezing cold, deep winter, wrap a scarf around your ears and brave the ice-wind that kicks up off the water – it’s worth it for the view. Crossing Waterloo Bridge is my pick because on either side you have a clear view of those iconic London buildings lit up at night – it’s like stepping into a postcard. St Paul’s Cathedral still dominates the skyline on the city side, surrounded by other church spires popping through the buildings crowding down to the riverbank. Down river you can see the modern Gherkin building, and Canary Wharf, and upriver there’s Big Ben and Parliament.
