Tower Bridge


Big birthdays are always special.  This week my Uncle chose to mark his 70th with a sentimental journey down the Thames.  He joined the Merchant Navy when he was a boy, at a time when the Thames had more trade than pleasure craft.  We started by Cleopatra’s Needle sailed down as far as Gallions Reach, the point where ships used to enter the great London Dockyards, passing under Tower Bridge as well went. Happy Birthday!

    Happy birthday! Our boys are fascinated by Tower Bridge. They’ve seen it open a couple of times and they loved going up on the bridge to see the giant hinges where the middle of the bridge folds up.

      I wanted to have our wedding reception in the top walkway until we saw the price!

    I love the muted colors! It gives the photo a mood. I wish I can experience something like this. Been here in the UK for 5 years but I havent been to London so see the sights yet. #mysundayphoto

    The architecture of this place is simply remarkable and outstanding! Did you take the picture yourself? If you did, well done!
