Victoria Embankment is a wonderful place for a walk along the river with so much to see. From Blackfriars Bridge to the Palace of Westminster you can watch the boats and sit on the benches and watch the world pass by.

We come to this spot every year for the fireworks - for us, it gives a balanced, symmetrical view of the display, based around the Millennium Eye. Well worth the ticket cost...

grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster

Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
