Thames Embankment, London
The Millennium Bridge is one of London’s newest architectural additions but has quickly become one of the hottest tourist spots in the city thanks to its appearance on blockbuster films like Harry Potter. The unique steel suspension bridge was designed by architect, Norman Foster and provides a beautiful contrast against the ancient brickwork of Central London. As you walk across the footbridge, you’ll also get some great views of the mighty River Thames so be sure to bring your camera along on your trip to the Montcalm Hotel London.
St Paul’s Cathedral
St Paul’s Churchyard, London
Built in the 17th century, St Paul’s Cathedral still remains to be one of London’s most beautiful buildings. The medieval architecture has been admired by tourists and photographers for centuries and is a must-see if you’re planning a stroll around the city. As you get closer to St Paul’s Churchyard, you’ll see the iconic white dome stretching up above the greys of the city. As you step inside the cathedral, you’ll be left speechless by the intricate beauty of the golden ceiling and ancient art that covers the inner walls.
London’s famous river has been a gateway into the city for centuries and has given inspiration to artists and writers throughout history. No trip to London would be complete without visiting the River Thames and the best way to experience it is by taking a stroll alongside its banks. Make your way from the Montcalm Hotel London and head south until you reach the water. The great thing about the River Thames is that no matter where you start your journey, there are always plenty of wonderful things to see and people to meet.
